Kids love to be part of cooking process. It has been observed that if involved during cooking, there are high chances of kids to eat and enjoy new food items. One can start with easy, kid friendly recipes and then advance to more complex recipes. Being mothers, we all have a challenge of making our children eat some vegetables. I try to involve my kids with daily simple task like making salad where knife use is minimal and preparation is easy. That is the reason they put salad in their dinner plates before the main dish.

Following is the first recipe we made together in our kitchen and they still remember the proportions of the ingredients as well as the process. This recipe makes 2 french toast which are usually enough for a child.

French Toast


Bread 2 slices

Egg 1

Milk 1/3 cup

Sugar 1 1/2 tbsp

Cinnamon one pinch

Butter 1 tbsp



  1. Crack the egg in a bowl.
  2. Mix sugar and cinnamon and add to the egg.
  3. Using a fork or small whisk, beat the egg until sugar is dissolved.
  4. Add the milk and mix well.
  5. Heat the griddle or a frying pan on medium heat and add half a tbsp of butter.
  6. Take a soup plate and pour in 3 tbsp of egg mixture, put the bread slice on top and pour 3-4 tbsp of mixture to coat it on both sides. Put the soaked bread slice on the pan.
  7. Repeat step 6 with the second bread slice.
  8. When one side is nicely golden brown, flip it over and cook the other side.
  9. Once done take them out on a plate and serve with sliced bananas and strawberries.
