MORE THAN 50 RECIPES FOR KIDS TO MAKE AND EAT — This fun and tasty collection of recipes will help kids make delicious dishes, including snacks, desserts, and main dishes. Links to kid-friendly cooking videos and cookbooks included!
Cooking and baking are such great skills for kids to learn. So I’ve decided to compile some of my favorite recipes and resources for teaching kids to cook in one handy place.
If my youngest is any indication, kids love YouTube videos. And video tutorials are a great way to learn new skills. I love these YouTube channels because they feature actual kids making kid-friendly recipes.
MY FAVORITE YOUTUBE COOKING CHANNELS FOR KIDS
THE BOW GIRLS: Adorable sisters Briena and Britney, not only make kid-friendly, colorful treats (like mermaid milkshakes) they also demonstrate savory recipes like homemade pizza, and healthy school lunches for school. Their videos feature slow paced, step-by-step demonstrations, so it’s easy for you and your kids to follow along.
CHARLI’S CRAFTY KITCHEN: Another sister duo, this time from Australia. In addition to sweets, they also make healthier snacks, like fruit kabobs and real-fruit popsicles. Their videos are so popular, they were nominated for a Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Award.
COOK WITH AMBER: This channel is especially relatable for older kids. And Amber features plenty of healthy recipe tutorials, like hummus and granola.
KID FOOD NATION: Being married to a Canadian, I had to give a shout out to this kid’s cooking channel. Not only do they feature fun, healthy recipes, like Oh Canada Oatmeal, their channel has plenty of cooking tutorials to help kids learn basic skills, like cutting onions and making hard boiled eggs.
