Engaging Ways For Your Toddler To Cook With You


Cooking with toddlers can be a great way to bond and connect with your little one.  Not only is it a special experience you create together but it can also be educational. With Beyond the Bib sauces, it's even more exciting as sauces are easy to pour, measure and mix. Here are some fun food activities to enjoy with your little one using our sauces.

  • Sauce Painting: Turn meal prep into an art project by using sauces as edible paints. Let your toddler unleash their creativity by "painting" cooked pasta or corn ribs with brushes or fingers. It's a delicious way to explore different flavors and textures.
  • DIY Pizza Party: Set up a mini pizza-making station with pre-made pizza dough or English muffins. Encourage your toddler to spread Beyond the Bib Tomato or BBQ sauce as the base and add their favorite toppings. You can even go an exra step and make into fun pinwheels.  This hands-on activity sparks imagination and independence.
  • Build Your Own Wraps: Lay out a variety of ingredients like tortillas, sliced veggies, cheese, and proteins. Let your toddler assemble their own wraps, putting on the finishing touches with a drizzle of sauce.  This activity enhances fine motor skills and decision-making.
  • Veggie Dipping Fun: Cut up an assortment of colorful vegetables like peppers, carrots, and cucumbers. Provide bowls of Beyond the Bib sauces for dipping. Your toddler will love dunking their veggies into the sauces for a tasty and healthy snack (and you’ll love all the extra veggies their getting from the sauces!)
  • Cooking Together: Make meal prep a bonding experience by incorporating Beyond the Bib sauces into dishes like mini meatloaves. Your toddler can lend a hand in measuring, mixing, and even using a toddler-safe knife when they're ready. It's a fantastic way to nurture a love for cooking and trying new foods.
Cooking with Beyond the Bib sauces not only adds excitement to mealtime but also cultivates a lifelong passion for food exploration in your little ones.
