Kids Kitchen Safety Tips

If you have little ones that love to help in the kitchen, you will probably know how awesome and terrifying it is to see them cook. Here are a few tips to keep your kids safe in the kitchen.

  1. Always be near your kids when they are in the kitchen, especially when they are holding knifes and turning on stoves
  2. Make sure they wash their hands before, during and after they cook
  3. Make sure the counter is at waist level with the kids, so they can see what they are doing (a stool is a great option)
  4. The food they are cutting should always be flat to the surface and make sure they are curling their non-knife-holding fingers under to hold when they are chopping so they don’t accidentally hurt themselves (knife finger guards are an option you can opt to)
  5. Make sure they ask before they taste anything
