Start Out - Key Tips for All Ages

A quick guide for teaching kids of all ages how to help in the kitchen:

  • Be a healthy role model!
  • Remind your child to wash his or her hands before touching food or eating.
  • Give your child a task that can be done with success.
  • Select a place where your child can do that task safely.
  • Break the task into steps that are easy to follow:

    1. First show them how to do the step.
    2. Then let them practice.
    3. Don't expect perfection.
    4. Be patient and allow extra time as they learn new skills.
