Ways to encourage your tiny chefs

Getting kids involved in preparing the gluten-free apple and brown rice bake can be a fun and educational experience! Here are some ideas to get them engaged:

  1. Apple Preparation: Let the kids help wash, peel, and chop the apples. Depending on their age and skill level, they can use a child-safe knife or a peeler with supervision.
  2. Mixing Ingredients: Allow the kids to help mix the cooked brown rice, diced apples, and spices in a large mixing bowl. This can be a fun and messy activity for them.
  3. Greasing the Cake Mould: Show the kids how to grease the We Might Be Tiny Bear Cake Mould with butter. This can be a simple but important step in the baking process.
  4. Shaping the Cake: After the mixture is prepared, let the kids help transfer it to the cake mould and spread it out evenly. This can be a tactile and creative activity for them.
  5. Decorating the Cake: If desired, kids can help decorate the top of the cake with additional apple slices or a sprinkle of cinnamon before baking.
  6. Setting the Table: Have the kids help set the table with plates, utensils, and napkins. They can also prepare the yoghurt to accompany the cake.
  7. Cleaning Up: Teach the kids the importance of cleaning up after cooking by involving them in washing dishes and tidying up the kitchen.
