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!
Chaat is one of the famous recipes when it comes to Indian cooking. And making a sprout chaat adds a healthy twist to it along with the taste. You would need to soak the lentils in water overnight. Strain the water the next morning and keep them covered for a day for them to sprout. The choice of lentils can be Moong dal, chana, or chholey.
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. Add salt, pepper, and chaat masala to taste. Toss it all around so that it mixes well and the salt and juice blend in well. Last, put a few drops of olive oil and mix it well. Your healthy snack is ready to eat!
Summer is the right time for this yummy, creamy and healthy Mango dessert. Mango is very healthy as it is high in antioxidants and nutrients. With the arrival of summer, your children need something to cool off.
Add gelatin and hot water to a medium bowl and whisk until it’s smooth. Add in sugar and salt – mix it till it dissolves. Now add the coconut milk, add the mango puree and whisk until the mixture is smooth. Pour the ready mixture into small bowls ( 4 as per the above measurements ). Refrigerate the bowls for approximately 2 hours.
Sit back and enjoy this cool dessert on a hot summer day!
This super healthy smoothie made from dates is filled with vitamins, minerals, energy, fiber, calcium, and many more nutritious elements.

Pour the liquid content from the blender into a glass and keep it in the refrigerator if you wish to have it chilled. Your smoothie is ready to be devoured.
Biscuits are a favorite snack among children. Here’s a light yet fulfilling snack that your kid will love to eat and be eager to prepare themselves because it’s super easy and yummy!
Put the Marie biscuits in a mixer and grind them till they’re finely crushed. Pour the contents into a deep bowl and then add milk, sugar, and butter. Whisk the contents and pour the mixture into a baking tray and let it set properly. Garnish it with almonds, pistachios, and cashew as per your preferences. Place the tray in the freezer for around 20-25 minutes and after that transfer it to the Refrigerator section and let it cool for an hour. Your biscuit cake is ready to be served.
Oreos are one of the favourite cookies for many people. They have a delicious chocolate flavor that can be added to a variety of recipes. This delicious thick shake is delicious and also filling.
Put all the ingredients in the blender together except 3 crushed Oreos and 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream. Blend it into a smooth mixture and then pour it into a glass.
