Lovely Little Bakers

Since I became a mama something I've become more and more passionate about is cooking with my children. I talk about it a lot as I feel it's such as important skill to pass on to our little ones.
There are so many reasons why cooking with your child is a great thing to do; it's a brilliant way to re-connect with them and talk, it engages their attention, it teaches them about food and how to nourish themselves properly, it encourages creativity...and it's fun!
I want my boys to grow up knowing how to feed themselves, to have the initiative to create meals, to enjoy food and cooking. I also love to use baking a cake or some biscuits as an excuse to play and laugh and talk with them.
You don't need to be a great cook or baking to Mary Berry's standards (although if you can, well done.);You just need a little enthusiasm and a reasonably clear(ish) spot on the kitchen counter or table.
Something the little guy and I do together regularly is bake; This is definitely in part down to our love of cake in this house, but mainly it's because I love to do it, and I love sharing it with my children.
I've only realised recently how important baking and cooking is to me. It means so much when I receive something home made and equally, I show people I care by feeding them!
It makes me so happy to see people enjoying something I've made.
My grandparents came from a generation where cooking skills were passed on at home and in school; It's something I hope to continue with my children and I'd love to connect with anyone else who does too!
I've started this new hashtag for anyone who loves baking with little ones; if you're a Mum or Dad, a Grandparent, Auntie, Uncle...anyone baking with children really, then join in!
You can tag us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter
We'll also be having some giveaways and I'll be sharing my favourites across our social media.
If you need some inspiration pop over to our Pinterest boards!

Lets get baking!
