Rules for Cooking With Kids

This series was created to help parents bond with their kids while teaching them valuable skills. It includes tips, ideas and recipes.

When cooking with children, it is vital to set the kitchen rules right from the start. Good hygiene and work area safety are just as important at home as it is in a job environment. The basic rules apply:


  • Wash your hands with soap before you start food preparation;
  • Wash your hands with soap after handling food, sneezing or touching your face;
  • Tie back long hair;
  • Roll up long sleeves;
  • No dangling jewellery or clothing;
  • Wear shoes that completely cover your feet to protect against hot spills;
  • Keep your apron strings tucked in and away from the burner;
  • Make sure nothing is hanging over the edge of the counter;
  • If you cannot reach, ask for help;
  • Hands off the stove;
  • Pot/Pan handles need to be turned toward the inside of the stove;
  • Only adults handle the knives (for younger children);
  • Knives point away from people (for older children);
  • Peel away from your body; and
  • If a fire breaks out, step back so mom or dad can cover it and turn off the heat.


You may want to print up a list of the rules to post on the fridge. Communication is essential to running a smooth kitchen and it reviewing the rules often will help reinforce them in your child(ren)’s good habits.

If you have other rules, be sure to add them below in the comment section!

      ALWAYS WEAR SHOES IN THE KITCHEN!

      USE GOOD POSTURE. AVOID LEANING ON THE COUNTER.
