7 x dishes you can make together with your child

Must Try

Thinking about what to eat every week can be quite a challenge. To ensure that you do not put the same dishes on the table every week, we are happy to inspire you with handy weekly menus. Cooking for children is not always easy, sometimes you can even start to dread it. But cooking with children is a lot of fun and ( insight!): they usually eat better too!

Children cannot prepare an entire meal on their own. But give them a specific task (depending on the age and abilities of your child) and you will see that a world opens up to you. An evening meal without fuss? It just might be.

Gnocchi from the oven with a kind of divine basic bolognese sauce, that makes almost every child’s mouth water. Especially if they can cut the zucchini themselves and mix it with the gnocchi on the baking sheet. Let them taste it too! Halving the tomatoes is also a nice job for the little ones, they can also enjoy a bit of healthy candy at the same time.

Besides the fact that the children will find this pita with chicken satay and mango salsa more than average (and you will too!), they are a fun job to tackle together. Marinating together and slicing the mango (for the little ones cut off the pulp from the mango): nothing so much fun. And again: let go of the perfect strips as they are in the photo, that probably won’t work.
