Cooking for and with kids

Bonne mousse au chocolat

Cooking for kids! What a controversial topic and how charged with emotions and strong beliefs. This page also provides the recipe to cook with kids (not just for them).

An introduction

This section of Bread’N Butter Kids will provide you with some recipes which are really children’s favourite! Now, it is not to say that they are not for adults, not at all actually, more like you are sure to get the thumbs up from the children with those!

Now, before you get started, I will just highlight my main beliefs on kids food:

  1. Kids should be encouraged to try everything.  How many times have I seen 8 y.o. kids who had never tried to eat a green lettuce!
  2. Kids favourite are not all about pasta, chips and mash potatoes, no please!
  3. There are some strong flavours which are not kids friendly, although you may be surprised by their taste.  They may love strong blue cheese for example!  The same goes with spicy (chilli spicy) food.  I don’t push the kids to eat when there is an “adult” flavour, I would often cook a side more kids friendly (this is the only time I do so, as normally everyone eats the same thing).
  4. I do not cook a “kids meal” and an “adult meal” (exception made for some parties, and babies/toddlers of course).
  5. You may find there are many chocolate recipe, it is just a family addiction!
  6. Similarly, there are plenty fun desserts different to ice-cream.
  7. I do use salt in all children’s savoury food even if only a little, no hurt there and a key enhancer.  It will not stop your children loving the raw vegies, trust me.  Obviously if the ingredient is already salted, no point overloading.

Have fun! And if you need some help, contact me.  I am in Sydney (Australia), happy to answer your questions and provide some services to support you through your needs.
