Children cook - 15 tasty and healthy simple recipes will teach children how to cook

Preparing your baby for an independent life should start from the cradle. It only seems that the little one will be a "hindrance" for mom while she is preparing dinner. In fact, a two-year-old can already be trusted to beat eggs, for example. Or sifting flour. A 5-year-old child is already a more experienced helper. He is able to mix the salad, and decorate the dish, and make dumplings. Well, a child over 8 years old can already be allowed to the stove. But only under the supervision of mom! The main thing is to choose the right dish.

Your attention - the best recipes for young chefs!

Sandwiches for the festive table

The simplest dish that even a child of 2-3 years old can easily cope with.

What to look for in the bins:

  • Bread (sliced).
  • 6-7 lettuce leaves.
  • A couple tbsp mayonnaise.
  • Sliced ​​ham and salami.
  • Sliced ​​cheese.
  • Green.
  • Polka dots.

Also pickled cucumbers, olives and boiled carrots (which mother will pre-cut into slices).

No cooking instructions. Because in this case, everything depends only on the imagination of the child (and the mother who helps him). Food, as you know, should be not only healthy and tasty, but also ... aesthetic in appearance. And on sandwiches, that is, where fantasies can roam - mice, cats, Smeshariki, a marine theme and much more.

Stocking up on food "materials" and forward to creativity!

Interesting and delicious meals can be prepared together with children.

Crispy cucumbers in a tub — getting ready for a delicious winter

Yes, just imagine, a child can cook this too. Real pickles prepared by the hands of your own son (daughter) - what could be tastier!

Of course, you will have to help a little, but the main work is on the young cook (let him feel his involvement in the "great"). And if the child himself is also a fan of crunching cucumber under potatoes, then cooking will be doubly interesting. A real adult dish for a growing child.

Don't worry, there are no glass jars or boiling brine in the recipe, and a child over 12 years old can do this Russian dish on their own.

What to look for in the bins:

  • Fresh, small cucumbers. Quantity - in accordance with the container (about 5 kg).
  • Salt. For 2 liters of brine - 140 g of salt.
  • Various spices - fresh and washed. For 5 g of cucumbers: 150 g of dill, 15 g of garlic, 25 g of cherry leaves, 25 g of horseradish (leaves), 25 g of blackcurrant (leaves) and 2.5 g of hot pepper (optional), bay leaf and peppercorns.
  • Sugar - a couple of tbsp.
  • 2 liters of water.


  1. Rinse the spices thoroughly.
  2. Peel and finely chop the garlic (if a child is not yet trusted with a knife, mother can do this). We crush it with a crush in a mortar (and this is already the task of the child).
  3. We sort cucumbers, choose the smallest and thin-skinned ones. Wash thoroughly and soak in cold water for about 5 hours (so that the cucumbers do not wrinkle in the brine).
  4. We take 1/3 of the spices and cover the bottom of the prepared tub with them. Next - a layer of cucumbers, which must be laid as tightly and vertically as possible (“standing”). Then another layer of spices and another layer of cucumbers. After that, all the cucumber beauty is covered with the rest of the spices, and on top of them we lay horseradish leaves.
  5. Above - oppression, on which the load is placed. And then we pour everything with brine. How to make it? In the water cooled down after boiling (warm, 2 l), we dissolve 140 g of salt and pour our cucumbers so that they are completely covered with brine.

The job is done. We cover with a lid and forget about cucumbers for a couple of days, leaving the "dish" in the kitchen or room.

On the 3rd day, as soon as the process of initial fermentation has started, hide the tub in a dark and cool place for at least a month.

Fruit butterflies - for summer mood!

This recipe is suitable for a 7-9 year old child who is already allowed to use a knife. However, you can cook "butterflies" even at 3-4 years old, if your mother helps you wash everything, cut out the wings and plan the antennae.

What to look for in the bins:

Grapes (eg Kish-Mish and Ladyfinger).
Strawberry and kiwi.


  1. Cut an orange slice in half. And we lay these halves in the shape of butterfly wings.
  2. On the "back" of the butterfly we lay half of the grape berry - the "torso".
  3. We put a small and round grape in place of the head.
  4. From the orange peel we cut thin antennae-stripes, apply to the “head” and slightly bend them to the sides.
  5. Decorate butterfly wings with kiwi and strawberry slices.
  6. Eyes can be made with a couple of drops of melted ice cream.
  7. We lay it out on a plate and ... make the family happy!

If desired, butterflies can be seated on a “meadow” of currant leaves or hidden among marzipan flowers. By the way, the last children also love to create.

  3. We lower our "buds" into boiling water and wait 15 minutes until they "bloom".
  4. Carefully remove with a slotted spoon, let dry a little.
  5. Well, now the most important thing is the creation of a bouquet. We beautifully lay out stems with leaves (onions, dill) on a dish, place our “flowers” ​​and, at our discretion, add, for example, vegetable butterflies (the principle is the same as for fruit butterflies - see above).
