Cooking with children should be fun…and delicious! Every experience with children should be enjoyed and encompasses all aspects of education; numeracy, literacy, language, social skills – just to name a few.

Preschoolers in particular have grasped the concept of recipes and will ask about quantities and what’s next. Before cooking, sit down with the children and talk through the ingredients and the different types of measuring utensils required, put them in order and look at cooking like a science experiment

Here is an incredibly simple recipe for cheese and bacon rolls, which is really easy, and what I like about it, is that sit can be done in different stages which is perfect for children who tend to get easily distracted.

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • – 1 tablespoon yeast

  • – 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • – 1 cup warm milk
  • – 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • – olive oil
