A handy list of safety tips to make sure no unexpected injuries occur in the kitchen.
When you’re in the kitchen with your kids it’s very important for you to make sure they’re safe from any unexpected injuries. It’s not hard, trust us, but it does require a little bit of planning. To make sure that you know exactly what to do, we’ve prepared a list of safety tips for you to read through.
Those Hands Though
Teaching your kids to clean their hands before they start cooking is the very first step to training a young chef. Whenever your kids join you in the kitchen make sure they wash their hands for at least 5 seconds, and then welcome them into your creative space.
A Lesson in Expiration
As your children learn to cook you should teach them about expiry dates as soon as possible. It’s an easy way to protect them from eating food that’s passed its expiry date and getting sick. The next time you’re in the mood for a Chicken Pot Pie show your little helper where to find the expiry date and explain what it means to make sure they are always safe.
Keep Them Clean!
Dirt loves counter tops and if you don’t teach your kids to keep them clean, your kitchen could end up in a mess! Easy to make and easy to clean, it’s the kind of mess that build up really fast. The next time your son or daughter helps you put together a delicious Creamy Paprika Chicken, make sure they take pride in the kitchen and clean up.
It’s Getting Hairy
Long hair is a nightmare in the kitchen. It finds its way into your food. And it gets so dirty! If your children have long hair, make sure they tie it up when they help you cook. This way, you won’t bite into any unexpected ingredients in your next Ratatouille.
