Cooking with a child.
For moms, the scene of a messy kitchen will come to mind first.
Realizing the difference between reality and ideal,
you tell your child to “watch the TV while mommy is cooking,”
and press the power button of the TV or show Youtube.
Mothers also feel guilty.
If so, is it difficult to have the time to prepare dinner
and truly share happy moments with your child?

It is a dish that both mothers and children can easily and simply make.
Wash vegetables, and add cherry tomatoes and other toppings

or yogurt dressing by mixing yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, honey, etc.
It’s a recipe where you just need to only mix the ingredients, but
it will be the first time for the child to make something on their own
without the help of the mom from start to finish.
The child’s clothes may be wet, but just pretend you don’t know.
Don’t forget to be a thoughtful mother.

There are so many ingredients to prepare, so your child can feel the joy of cooking for a long time.

and soft materials that children can easily cut
such as bell peppers, paprika, and mushrooms can be left to the child.

keep your child away from fire.
3. SEAFOOD TOMATO CHEESE OVEN PASTA
It is not like usual pasta that is fried in a frying pan.
This is a recipe using an oven or air fryer.
Prepare trimmed shrimp, squid and tomato sauce, pizza cheese, and boiled pasta noodles.

put the boiled noodles at the bottom and add plenty of tomato sauce.
Decorate it with seafood and sprinkle it with pizza cheese,
and then cook it in the oven at 180-185 degrees for 25 minutes and you’re done.

you will be able to cook more enjoyably.

the child realizes the importance of sharing roles
and can develop their creativity through decorating food freely.

for children, they can eat delicious food prepared with their mother.
It will be a gift-like time that feels very rewarding.
