Millennial Mom on KTLA: Cooking with Kids
Now that my daughter is approaching 2, she wants to do everything herself. Even though she has her own play kitchen, nothing beats cooking with me and my husband in our real kitchen. That’s why I went on KTLA to talk about some of my favorite products that we use in the kitchen with our daughter to get her excited about kid-friendly cooking!
Real Cooking Kids Princess Cakes
Baking with your kids is so much fun, but it can be a mess and a lot of work! Real Cooking Kids Princess Cakes makes it super simple to bake professional-looking and tasting princess cakes right at home! Unlike other kid’s baking sets on the market, Princess Cakes uses real ingredients that you combine with your own fresh eggs, butter and milk before baking them in your own real oven. The easy-to-use utensils and instructions make both baking and decorating a cinch!
Fizzy Drinks with Crystal Geyser Sparkling Water
Kids love fizzy drinks but soda and juice drinks are loaded with sugar and unhealthy ingredients. Get the kids excited about a healthier option by encouraging them to make their own fizzy drinks using Crystal Geyser Sparkling Water. The company is celebrating their 40th anniversary this year and in celebration we have a Ruby Red Pomegranate Spritzer that kids will love making. It’s made with Crystal Geyser Orange Sparkling mineral water, a splash of pomegranate juice, a handful of pomegranate seeds and ice. You can even set up a fun sparkling water station with fruit and garnishes and let kids go to town
making their own creations.

Handstand Kitchen provides children their own domain in the kitchen that empowers them to eat healthy and delicious foods. From baking sets to aprons, cookbooks and pizza-making kits, Handstand Kitchen has everything a family needs to get the kids excited about real cooking.

Snacks with SunButter Sunflower Butter
I’m always looking for creative, fresh snacks that my daughter will love and SunButter has some great ideas. Today I made their recipes for apple sandwiches and pretzel bites that are super easy and tasty. These are great for the whole family and specifically great for kids’ lunches since SunButter is nut-free and school-safe. Plus, SunButter contains just as much protein and more micro nutrients than traditional nut butters and contain less saturated fat. I love how easy these recipes are too. Even my 2 year old can help me make them!
