I started cooking with my kids when they were quite young. Even if a toddler can’t make an entire recipe on their own, they can do plenty to help prepare meals and snacks. Cooking with toddlers is a great way to bond, and learn simple concepts like measuring and counting. If you have multiple kids, then they can practice taking turns. You can also incorporate language skills into these toddler recipes as kids talk about what they are doing. These 15 Amazing Recipes for Toddlers are fun recipes for kids that they will love.
Anytime you are cooking, invite your toddler to help out in some small way. I have made all of these recipes with toddlers so it is possible to cook with toddlers and live to tell the tale!

Eat At Home Meal Plans
Have you heard about Eat At Home Meal Plans? If the cost of eating out or the decision of what to make for dinner each night is stressing you out, then you must try these. When you sign up, you get access to four separate meal plans each month (Traditional, Wholesome Traditional, Slow Cooker, and No Flour/No Sugar). All you do is print the plans, color-coded grocery lists, and recipes you want for that month. Don’t worry, there are lots of options, so even picky eaters will find something they like.
Then when it is time for dinner, make that night’s recipe (choices include make-ahead, freezer meals, slow-cooker recipes, and other time-saving strategies).
That’s it! Dinner is on the table and you can enjoy a home cooked meal with the family – without the stress!
We all have more important things to do than meal planning. Let someone else do it for you with Eat At Home Meal Plans. Monthly, quarterly and annual plans are available.
