IKEA's 5 Rules For Cooking With Kids

  • by: Maarten Schenk

Seems like the PR people at IKEA have put together a neat video giving parents some tips on how to cook together with their kids in the kitchen (and not, as the title might imply, a cookbook for cannibals).

Here are their five rules:

  1. Don't correct the kids all the time.
  2. Don't get mad if they fail.
  3. Don't rush them.
  4. It's OK to be messy.
  5. It's OK to get tired or lose interest.

This sounds like a good list for 'recreational cooking'. However if you are trying to get dinner on the table in time so kid A can go to soccer practice, kid B can do music lessons and kid C has time to do homework before bedtime: this list sounds like a recipe for ending up with no food, a messy kitchen and having to clean it up all by yourself.
