Saucepan Kids was an idea, dreamt up in early 2012. For a long time we have involved our three young children in cooking and we think this is a major factor in their wide and varied appetites.
We believe that through doing this we can teach our children the value of food, where it comes from and how to eat responsibly when they are adults. We also want to share this with other families, hence this blog.
We are not trained chefs or nutritionalists, just normal parents cooking for their family. Not all of the recipes on the site would be considered healthy as we feel that should allow yourself and the kids treats from time to time as this gives them a healthy outlook – everything in moderation.
We also believe that as well as giving them valuable information, through growing, cooking and eating together, families can have lots of fun.
Some of the recipes on the site are our own, some from family and friends and some are from our favourite chefs. We also adapt recipes to our own tastes and what is left in the cupboard.
We make sure we include how the children can help and also tips for helping encouraging them to eat what you make.
If you’ve any comments, experiences or recipes you’d like to share, please let us know, we’d love to hear.
