Baking with Toddlers

Do you often bake with your toddler?

When you have as many food allergies as Jumpy, cooking might not be your hobby of choice. It is mine though, and I want my little girl to be as involved in the kitchen as she can possibly be.

She loves picking fruit for her own smoothies or homemade ice cream and giving her porridge a stir but until a couple of weeks ago, that was as far as she had been when it came to cooking.

When the lovely people at Sukrin offered to send us some of their products, including some bread mix that would be safe for my little lady, I immediately jumped at the occasion. We made the bread together one afternoon when Wriggly was having a nap.

We had such a great time together! I really treasure the rare moments when I am on my own with one of my children. I love really having time to focus on one of them, chatting about everything and anything, giving him or her my undivided attention.

Jumpy (2 years 6 months) managed to make her bread dough all by herself. She started by pouring the contents of the sachet into a bowl.

After that, she added water.

Finally, she stirred and I plopped the dough in the foil container provided.

An hour or so later, we had a lovely loaf of bread. Only problem: Jumpy refused to eat it. Typical, isn’t it? My friend Cé liked it, and she used the bread for her sandwiches!

Sukrin also sent us a range of flours, and so far, I have used the coconut flour to add fibre to our smoothies, as suggested by Debbie Russel, Development Chef at Sukrin.

To make this smoothie, we blended together pineapple, satsumas, apple juice, apricots, ice cubes and one teaspoon of coconut flour. We let it sit for a few minutes to allow the coconut flour to swell and thicken our drinks.
