Cooking With Preschoolers: safety precautions

Mason and Audrey love to help us cook. We make sure to constantly remind them when things are hot, and thankfully they haven't been burned yet. We also never leave them alone even if the stove/oven is off. We make sure we are detailed with instructions and with any dangers - i.e. we tell them that touching the meat and then their mouth can make them sick BEFORE the meat comes out of the fridge, then again while we are handling it, and again when the job is done. Frequent hand washing, frequent reminders, and constant vigilance are our three biggest focuses when cooking with the kids :)
