How to keep Kitchen Safety with Kids?

I wanted to send out a quick reminder of how to keep your children safe in the kitchen. At Kids'Kitchen we teach all our little chef about cooking hygiene, food facts and lots more. But for us the most important thing to keep in mind is 'Kitchen Safety'. Be it a fun session of  cooking activities with kids either at our workstation or at your home kitchen, 'Kitchen Safety should be at the top priority.

So here are some pointers to keep in mind when you cook with your kids:

  1. Always supervise young children and older children who are still inexperienced in the kitchen.
  2. Before starting any kids cooking activities, make sure you read all the kitchen safety rules loud and also clarify their doubts if any
  3. Don't leave knives, breakable items and other potential dangers within reach of young children. They can use a butter knife to cut soft items.
  4. Always operate the oven or stove yourself; don't let young children do it. Keep toddlers and preschoolers a safe distance away when you open the oven.
  5. Have a fire extinguisher on hand. Teach your kids how to stop, drop and roll in case they catch fire (they should know this anyway, whether they cook or not).
  6. Use safety tools, such as kitchen gloves, and an apron, to protect skin and clothing. Also, wear short sleeves or roll long sleeves up securely.
