My kids love to help me in the kitchen but sometimes that just adds to my stress level. Not to mention, most of the kitchen tools aren’t safe for little hands (knives, vegetable peelers, cheese graters).
I had read about Curious Chef, a company whose tagline is “real kitchen utensils for small hands” and immediately contacted them to ask if I could review one of their products.
They graciously sent me their 8-piece fruit and vegetable set, which included a small cutting board, silicon mixing spatula, fruit and vegetable peeler, melon baller, apple corer, nylon plastic knife and a vegetable scrubber.
Within 5 minutes of opening the package and washing the utensils, the kids were in the fridge picking various colored fruits to make a delicious fruit salad. The Wiggles would’ve been proud.
They sat around their little table, dividing up their responsibilities.
Bella was in charge of coring the apple…
Cole was in charge of slicing the strawberries…
Garrett was responsible for picking the grapes off the bunches of stems, as well as stirring the fruit in the bowl with the spatula…
Landon chose to oversee the project…keeping everyone in line and making sure no one snuck any bites of food before the salad was done (HELLO, Garrett….)
They worked together so well…I know, I was shocked too.
And when they were all done, we had a beautiful fresh fruit salad…YUM!
They loved the Curious Chef utensils, as did I. Each item was sized perfectly for their small hands. And not once did I have to yell, “Wait…don’t touch that!”
Of course, they needed to be supervised but, at the same time, all the utensils were child-friendly so it wasn’t nearly as stressful as it is when I’m using my “grown-up” kitchen utensils.
And the best part….they were so proud of themselves, having made their very own snack from start to finish.
Not to mention how thrilled I was that they were enjoying a HEALTHY snack!
The next day, the kids insisted on making the salad to go with our dinner…using their 8-piece fruit and vegetable set, of course.
I have a feeling we’re going to be eating a lot more healthfully from now on!
