We often promote cooking with your children. There are so many benefits of cooking with kids, and many age appropriate cooking and recipe ideas for you to try. I recently did a first aid course with my mothers group, and learning the possible dangers in the kitchen and hearing some horrible stories left me feeling like my kitchen was an absolute death trap. So before you launch into a marathon cook-off with your kids, one of the most important things to consider is kitchen safety. How safe is your kitchen? What could your child access if they were crawling, climbing or exploring new cupboards? Can they reach the stove? Can they open the oven door? Find the medicine? Pull something heavy out of the fridge?

We recently trialed the new Style range from Dreambaby® which offers some really great looking and versatile safety products perfect for the kitchen. Here are the products we tested (and also the one’s you could win):

Oven lock | Refrigerator latch | Angle lock 2 pack Multi-purpose clear latch | Outlet plugs 12 pack | Microwave oven lock | Cabinet sliding lock

What we thought? 

While it’s important to never leave your child unattended in the kitchen, accidents do happen and you can never be too careful. The trend of Australian homes these days often involves an open plan kitchen, dining, and living area. These open areas make it difficult to close off the kitchen using safety gates. Once your baby is one the move, the kitchen becomes a pretty appealing place. These safety products from Dreambaby® are some of the best I have used, and I would recommend them. They look far nicer than some of the other brands, blend in nicely, are stick on – so no drilling, and are really well designed. Harry was given free reign to test all the safety latches while I hid in the pantry to watch. Much to his frustration he couldn’t get into anything. I have since replaced all the safety latches and locks in my home with the Dreambaby® brand because they look nicer, and stop my little destructor from getting in places he shouldn’t.

    Favourite meal to cook with my child = banana muffins (he loves to “help” me mash bananas… I usually do an extra one so that what he “mushes” and eats is compensated for)

    grI love to cook cheese and veggie muffins with my two year old. He always steals the raw grated carrot, but I certainly don’t mind!

    Pancakes, as it is not just getting the ingredients together, it is also trying what tastes great on them

    My son is too young to cook with so he supervises. I explain what all the ingredients are when I’m cooking.

    My little man is only 18 months old, but loves to cook anything that ends with him licking the spoon and/or bowl clean!

    Cupcakes, but with three children you need to use three spoons so that everyone gets to lick one at the end.

    My oldest daughter has just recently developed a love for cooking. I think it pretty much started after watching Masterchef junior. My husband is the cook in our family so on weekends, he and our daughter spend time out in the kitchen making dinner and dessert. To be honestly though, I think the meals she and my hubby love to cook together the most are the desserts. They both have a sweet tooth so love making it and eating it after, especially anything with chocolate or apples in it. Just last weekend she made, completely on her own, an apple crumble and it was sooo yummy. My middle child is not interested in cooking at all and the toddler, well he’d rather just eat.

    My daughter has loved to bake since she was 2 – she’s now 4 and we’ve cooked all sorts of things together. But we especially love making cakes, mostly because she loves to lick the spoon afterwards :)

    My little man loves any cooking that involves tipping ingredients into a bowl. His healthy ‘cookie’ recipe would be one of our faves because of this, lots of ingredients to tip!

    My little girl and I love to bake together, but our favourite meal to cook together is breakfast! She loves to help with cracking eggs, mixing pancakes, spreading butter on toast, serving up cereal… And then she loves to eat it all!

    the current favourite is smartie cookies, i make the cookie dough and my favourite 17month old reshapes them to what he wants and pushes in the smaties. This means i usually end up with 3 trays of cookies instead of two but its hours of fun making them.
