Cooking For Children

Cooking for children is a different ball game altogether from cooking for adults.

Cooking for babies require extra care and cleanliness. Everything must be clean, the cooking utensils as well as the food of course. Food needs to be cooked till its mushy, blended, and sterelized. A lot of work is involved.

Cooking for toddlers and preschoolers require lots of imagination and creativity to make the food look attractive enough to eat. Toddlers are a picky lot when it comes to food. I usually try to "hide" vegetables and other food they dislike in the kids' favourite foodsl. I would hide fish in mashed potatoes. I would hide carrots and asparagus in omelettes. I would hide mushrooms and cabbages in fried fish or prawn fritters etc and they get eaten up that way when they would be untouch in their original form. It can also be frustrating when your hard work and "creativity" gets spit out all over the table and floor!

Cooking for adults is the simplest form of cooking there is but when your household has a baby, a toddler or preschooler and adults too, then cooking becomes rather challenging! Luckily for me, my household now consist of two adults, a toddler and a preschooler so the cooking for baby part is no longer required. Phew!
