Trying to cook with kids stuck in the house? We hear you. But, if you’ve seen toddlers whipping up a storm on YouTube and wondered how on earth you even get your junior chef to successfully scramble an egg, there’s some good advice out there to make your family cooking dreams less stressful. 

The first trick to get kids of all ages helping out in the kitchen is to take it step by step. As this little clip shows, start with a simple task and then add to the complexity bit by bit. That might mean slowly increasing the involvement of your little one each time. You can start with every ingredient measured out and just allow them to mix it all together to begin with. But in a few weeks they could be cracking eggs, setting timers and measuring ingredients like a pro.
