Cooking Safety

Letting your toddler help prepare food by doing simple tasks, such as mixing, measuring, pouring and stirring, are great ways to involve him in day-to-day chores and to develop important early math skills.

To keep the learning and fun safe:

  • Keep all knives and sharp or breakable objects well out of your child’s way.

  • Use latches or other safety devices on cabinets.

  • Establish a “safe distance” rule when adults are using the stove.
