Top 5 Delicious No-Flame Recipes for Children

Posted by My Chapter One on 30.04.2022

Cooking is a stress buster for many people and involving your child in preparing recipes and food items can be a fun experience for you and them. In the process, children learn about measurement, quantity, ingredients, and food combinations that go together along with different recipes. 

To begin with, recipes that are fireless are best for them. So, in this post, we have compiled some quick and easy-to-prepare delicious no-flame recipes that children can make without any fear of fire and flames. Cooking together is a wonderful way to bond with your children. And these easy no-cook recipes for kids are going to make this summer vacation a treat in the real sense of the term! 

As per the child’s age, the following activities can be handed over to kids to manage on their own.

Cooking with kids is not just about ingredients, recipes, and cooking. It's about harnessing imagination, empowerment, and creativity. 

Guy Ramsay Fieri

When young kids and pre-schoolers watch their parents cooking food, you can engage them in basic tasks like washing the vegetables, cracking an egg, spreading butter on toast, etc. This can be as a prelude to getting them involved in the process of cooking along with you when they are a bit older. 

A little older kids are usually ready to dabble their hands in the actual cooking/baking process. They can chip in with tasks like identifying the ingredients, measuring ingredients, mixing the batter, straining, etc. 

Here is a list of the top 5 recipes that you can enjoy making with your child this summer!

Mixed Sprout Chaat:

  • Mixed sprouts: 1 cup
  • Finely grated carrot: 1/2 cup
  • Green chilies finely chopped: as per taste

Take a big bowl and add all the sprouts to it. Then add all other ingredients – carrot, apple, pomegranate, green chilies, guava. Mix them well. Squeeze half an orange/lemon to it.

TURBO PHONICS (3.5- 6 years)

Gone are the days when as kids, we had to memorise spellings by heart. A misplacement of a and e, one alphabet here and there would get the whole spelling messed up. It was such an uphill task to memorise long lists of spellings for dictation. That’s because we didn’t learn to read words through phonics. There is a difference between learning to read and learning ‘how to read’.Phonics teaches to connect letters and symbols to their corresponding sounds and combinations of sounds thus making reading easier and simpler - by the rule. This summer, My Chapter One is conducting a Turbo Phonics camp for young children between the age group 3.5- 6 years.
