What is your favorite three ingredient recipe? As you will have seen, all the preparations that we have proposed are very simple to prepare and, therefore, we can take advantage of them to cook them with the children. However, when we get into the kitchen with the little ones, we must exercise extreme caution, as the dangers multiply.

Here are some tips to keep in mind so that cooking with your children is a safe activity.

- Common sense must prevail
They say that common sense is the least common of the senses. However, when we get into the kitchen, it should be our guide to behavior. Much common sense!

- Don't forget how old your children are and what their abilities are
Obviously, cooking with a 3-year-old is not the same as with a 10-year-old. Although the former needs to do everything with Mom or Dad (and therefore supervision must be continuous and attentive), the latter can move with some independence. On the other hand, it is necessary that we take into account the skills that our children have been developing (eye-hand coordination, precision in movements, etc.) before entrusting them with certain tasks.

- Cook without haste ... and patience!
Everyone knows that rushing is not good counselor, especially when we go into the kitchen with the children. Therefore, it is better not to cook with time or in a hurry, because we could forget certain precautions.

In addition, we must be aware that we surely have to repeat some of the steps, that we have to use more ingredients than expected because some have been wasted ... And that we will have to clean and collect a lot when we finish cooking!

- More than one adult in the kitchen
When our children are young, and we have more than one, it may be necessary to cook with more than one adult. Do not hesitate to lean on your partner so that you can do a complete supervision work.

- In large families, siblings help each other
In the case of large families, we can take the opportunity to pair older siblings with younger siblings. By making these kitchen kits, we encourage sibling relationships and teamwork and, in addition, the older ones will be able to keep an eye on the little ones. This does not mean, however, that parents must also supervise.

- Be careful what you burn
What burns (and what is very cold) is always handled with great care. And if there are preparations that can become dangerous for children, we must always do them as adults. To do this, if necessary, before we start cooking we should warn our children: 'Honey, we are going to cook this recipe. We are going to do it together, as a team, but there are some steps that Mom will have to take so that we don't hurt ourselves. '

- All knives saved
Knives are the great kitchen hazards. Therefore, if the children are small, we must keep them all in the drawers and only take out one, which will be in the possession of mom or dad throughout the cooking session.

- The handles of the pans, for inside
In the kitchen, a thousand eyes! Make sure that the handles of the pans are inward at all times, so that the little one cannot grab them and throw them over them. The doors of the washing machine and dishwasher, better closed, so that nothing that does not have to go there does not enter. And the appliances that we are not using should be turned off and, if possible, stored in the cupboards.

- The kitchen is not a playground
In the kitchen you do not run, you do not jump, you do not play ... It is important to emphasize this to avoid accidents.

Despite all the precautions that must be taken in the kitchen, we do not have to take away the desire to cook with our children, especially if what we have in hand are these easy 3-ingredient recipes. And it is that this shared activity has many benefits for the little ones, but also for us.

It allows us to spend quality time with our children
Often, on a day-to-day basis, we don't have time to truly enjoy the company of our children. We are with them while they play or do homework, but are we really present and enjoying them? Spending time in the kitchen is the perfect excuse to all be together and create precious memories.

Promote the skills of our children
Inside the kitchen many skills of our children can be practiced: from concentration to fine motor skills.

- It helps them to be more autonomous
Without a doubt, cooking teaches autonomy and problem solving to children. They will learn that there are certain things they can do on their own and that when problems arise, they must try to solve them with the best disposition and the most creative way. And all these learnings can be done behind the stove.

We transmit the love for cooking
If we get our children to learn to love cooking and gastronomy, we will be starting them in a great hobby that they can cultivate for the rest of their lives. We will give them the opportunity to discover a new hobby, thanks to which they will be able to enjoy more from day to day.

- They learn recipes for their future
Even if we don't even want to think about it, there will come a day when our children are older and leave our home to start their own adult lives. These times of cooking with them during childhood will help them feel more comfortable in the kitchen and they will know how to handle recipe books better.
