It is pretty easy to get kids in the kitchen to eat…but we like to get them cooking with us as well! With this in mind, we are focusing on kid friendly dessert recipes this year. Kids love dessert (and so do we!), so it is a great way to get them involved in your family cooking fun. Being in the kitchen together is also a great opportunity to slow down, set aside cell phones and gaming devices, and spend time talking.

These kid friendly dessert recipes are a great way to get kids in the kitchen with you to them how to cook. From simple no bake recipes to cupcakes and homemade ice cream, there is something in this list everyone will love.
