About National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day
National Kids Take Over the Kitchen Day is observed annually on September 13th.
The objective of this day is to empower kids and teens to become more actively involved in the planning, preparation, and cooking of meals actively fighting the battle against the many serious health and social issues related to youth’s eating habits in today’s time.
There are many dishes that children can make in the kitchen, depending on their age and skill level. Here are a few ideas:
Fruit salad: This is a great option for younger children. They can help wash and chop the fruit and mix it all together.
Quesadillas: Children can help assemble the quesadillas by placing the cheese and other ingredients between the tortillas. A grown-up can then cook them on the stove.
Homemade pizza: Kids can help spread the sauce, sprinkle cheese, and add their favorite toppings.
Smoothies: Children can add their favorite fruits, yogurt, and milk to a blender and blend until smooth.
Salad: Kids can wash and chop the vegetables, and toss them together in a bowl with some dressing.
Grilled cheese sandwiches: Children can help assemble the sandwiches and then an adult can cook them on the stove.
Macaroni and cheese: Kids can help measure out and mix the ingredients, and then an adult can cook the pasta and finish the dish.
Deviled eggs: Children can help peel the hard-boiled eggs and mix the yolk mixture.
Remember to always supervise children in the kitchen, especially when using sharp objects or heat sources.
