Thermos SG June 7 Recipes You Can Try with Your Child This June Holidays Hero


Getting your child to help in preparing a meal not only allows them to practise motor skills, like cutting and pouring, but also teaches them about raw ingredients and cooking processes. Additionally, being in the kitchen from a young age is a good way to nurture more adventurous eaters. We’ve rounded up 7 tasty recipes with steps you can easily delegate to your child.

  1. Garlic Shrimp on Luffa Cup


    A creative dish with an almost architectural design, this healthy steamed dish is all about the prep as it only takes minutes to cook. Kids will have fun scooping out the luffa seeds to make cups for the meat filling and assembling the whole dish.

    It might not take a whole village to make dumplings, but this traditional Chinese dish is often made with the help of friends and family, who would all pitch in to fold the dumplings. While your child can help mix the filling, the real fun is in folding these delicious parcels. Feel free to experiment with different shapes, or invest in a dumpling press for younger kids.

    This popular tomato-based pasta is a great recipe to show kids how their favourite meals are made. Buy a kid-friendly knife to let your child help cut up the tomatoes, and let him have a go at stir-frying, but keep a close watch for splatters. Don’t worry if it gets messy because there’s plenty of time to clean up before dinner while the dish cooks in the Thermos® Shuttle Chef®.
