Tips for Parents and Carers: Always help your kid/s in the kitchen. There are many sharp and/or heavy objects, or hot areas like the oven or stove. If you have a high bench and they won’t wriggle around too much, you can sit a stool next to the bench so that they can reach and get involved. Aprons are useful to wear to stop them from getting food on their clothes. Little chef hats are good for photos
