It’s no secret that kids want in on the grown-up activities, and that includes helping out in the kitchen. So for little ones who prefer chocolate mousse over mud pies, give yourself a break from cooking duties and hand the apron over to your live-in gourmet. We made it a total no-brainer with three easy recipes for a full day of fun meals — no culinary pedigree required. And they can brush up on prep skills and menu planning with our Little Chef essentials, including mini kitchen set-ups, plastic cutlery and dishes, and play food that’s (almost) good enough to eat. Bon appétit!
Breakfast: Teddy Bear Toast
Lunch: Princess Pesto Lunch
Dinner: Lasagna Cups
