Do you allow your kids in the kitchen when you cook/bake? Do you allow them to help?

    I do allow mine in the kitchen and I do allow them to help. I think that it encourages them to cook and create and see the fun in it. It can also help with math. ;)

    Totally allowed and encouraged! In fact I have always had my 14yr old in the kitchen helping and now she even makes dinner a few times a month!

    Yep, they love to help me bake and cook. They help pour stuff usually and get things out. I am teaching the older kids to crack the eggs too. They also love to stir

    My son has been in the kitchen since he was born :-) He's 15-months-old now and he loves to help momma! Obviously, I'm always babywearing while he's helping as I don't feel it would be safe otherwise; so, while he's not truly active in the kitchen- outside of stirring or mixing- he is being exposed to cooking and making memories!
