6 or Fewer Ingredients



These 6 or fewer easy kids meals were composed with the chef in training age group in mind. To help them continuously learn and practice after the chef in training cooking lessons.

However they are also great for quick easy meal ideas that your kids can help with. As stated before these recipes were composed with 7-11 years old in mind so you may adjust the recipe directions as needed.
desserts kids can make
For example, older kids can do the cooking where as younger age groups will not be cooking and do not have the attention span for some recipes. They will do better when given small tasks and helping you create the recipe.
