When are your kids old enough to make their own breakfast? There's no one-size-fits-all with breakfast preparation, but responsibility can vary by age range.
A four-year-old child could put prepared and measured ingredients into a very simple recipe. No knives, no electricity, no stoves or ovens. Yogurt parfaits are perfect for your child to mix with ingredients from containers.
Older children can take more responsibility, using the microwave or stove with supervision.
Cultivate independence and self-confidence by allowing them to make breakfast at the right level for their age and ability.
Listen to this encore episode from February 2020 as Dr. Suanne Kowal-Connelly joins Melanie Cole, MS to discuss kids making breakfast.
