Love to Learn: 5 Easy Meals That Kids Can Make

I love watching my boys working in the kitchen.  Through the years they have all learned to cook and bake a variety of foods.  I always start them out with fairy easy "meals" to prepare and then gradually work them up to harder ones.

Some of the easiest meals my kids enjoy making are:

1.  Cheese Quesadillas-- My youngest son has even learned to grate his own fresh cheese over the flour tortilla.  He often microwaves them for a real easy meal but my boys do know how to pan fry them too.

2.  Grilled Cheese Sandwiches -- Once my boys could butter the bread without making a hole in it they were ready to learn how to make this yummy sandwich.  (If you don't want them cooking yet Peanut Butter and Jelly  is another great option)

3.  Pasta and Sauce-- While my boys still don't like draining the pot after cooking the pasta they do all know how much water to put in the pan, how to tell if the water is boiling, and how to read the box of pasta to know how long to cook it for.

4.  Hot dogs or hamburgers- My boys often boil hot dogs or fry up a burger patty on the stove.  Served with chips and salad they have an easy low prep meal ready in minutes. 

5.  Scrambled eggs with toast-- I think one of the very first meals my kids learned to make was scrambled eggs.

  1. My boy has recently started making his beloved pumpkin bread for breakfast. We are slowly working on his repertoire, as he has many food allergies and must scratch cook. It's a work in progress!

    1. That sounds delicious. I bet the food allergies do make it tougher but he'll have valuable life skills starting with cooking from scratch.

  2. Cooking is a great life skill. When kids feel comfortable and natural doing it they are far more likely to do it as adults.

    1. Exactly! I want them each to have a few meals that they can easily make so we started young and I hope to get them to experiment a bit more with it as they get older.

  3. My kids love to cook! Some of their favorites are Eggs, Black Bean Burritos, Grilled Cheese, Pancakes, Waffles, and fruit smoothies.

    1. I forgot about smoothies! My oldest son loves to experiment with different fruits, peanut butter, and other ingredients in his.
