Treat yourself to a moment of shared indulgence with your toddlers or grown-ups, thanks to these really cool books that we have found for you and that you can also offer them.

Cook with a toddler

  • A few tips:
  • Take the time to read the recipe to the child, before starting. This allows you to explain some words if necessary, and then you will be fully in the making.
  • For the toddlers, the gestures they prefer are a shambles: stir, crush, knead. Their time of concentration being limited, think to prepare the utensils and the ingredients in advance, putting them in plastic containers, that it will only have to pour in the salad bowl, which you will choose well stable and wide. From 4/5 years old, you can take measurements with him.

As soon as he is in the learning age of reading, he will be proud to decipher the recipe with you, before realizing it. Plan this reading time just before.
