Cooking and Baking with Your Toddler

Cooking and baking with toddlers doesn’t have to be intimidating. It doesn’t have to be hard. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. It doesn't have to look the same as it does when you're cooking with an older child or by yourself. 

A few thoughts on cooking and baking with your Montessori toddler. And a look at a toddler friendly recipe in action.

Cooking and baking with toddlers is the beginning of a relationship with food and the kitchen. It’s the starting point. It’s meant to be enjoyable. It's a sensory experience. It's meaningful exploration. It's about connection. 


Cooking and baking with toddlers can be messy. It can take a little extra prep work. It can take confidence. It can turn out differently than you expected. But, it can be wonderful. 


Gus makes this no bake recipe with a little prep work. I measured all the ingredients and poured them into bowls I knew he could successfully dump/pour. And, chose to dump the sticky ingredients that needed scraping myself. We had a lovely time and a lovely snack. 


Do you enjoy getting into the kitchen with your toddler?
