Encourage the kids to don their mini chef hats and get stuck in in the kitchen with our pick of cooking apps for budding cooks.
Getting children involved in the kitchen has many benefits: developing creativity and fine motor skills, encouraging healthier eating and an interest in food, beating fussiness, and a newfound appreciation for how hard you work for them. Cooking can help young kids learn and practice some basic math concepts and build language skills. And the experience of creating meals with you can help build their self-confidence and lay the foundation for healthy eating habits.

Issa's Edible Adventures

( iPad - Free )

Issa's Edible Adventures is a stunning application that is suitable for ages 6 and above and follows the adventures of Issa as she discovers the ingredients from around the world to help make wonderful dishes. This beautifully designed app has been inspired by celebrity chef Aliya LeeKong who has a passion for bringing global and socially conscious foods into everyday cooking. This app is free from in-app purchases and in-app adverts. 

Grandma's Kitchen

( iPad - £2.29 )

Grandma's Kitchen is an educational cooking app covering kindergarten skills such as alphabetical order, phonics blends, compound words, counting by tens, and basic addition. Grandma asks the questions as she works in the kitchen, offering fun brain breaks as rewards.
Grandma's yummy desserts beckon kids to play. Kids then answer a variety of literacy and math questions interspersed with short video clips about cooking and food prep, decorating cakes, and finding the healthy foods in the fridge.
Dr. Panda's Restaurant 2

( iPad - Free )

Dr. Panda's Restaurant 2 is a casual waterfront restaurant that customers reach in a boat. Kids serve as Dr. Panda, taking customer's orders and preparing their dishes in the kitchen. The orders repeat -- pizza, a stir fry dish, pasta, salad, and soup, but kids get to choose what to put in and how to prepare it and then serve it to their customers who eat it and respond with what they liked and what they didn't -- including some fun expressions, especially with spicy dishes.

Kids can learn some cooking basics as they choose the ingredients and kitchen appliances and tools to create the dish their restaurant customer ordered. They'll learn how the foods react to different cooking methods -- pan frying, boiling in water, stir frying in a wok, or baking in an oven.

Toca Kitchen

( iPad - £1.49 )

Toca Kitchen allows users to explore cooking and discover what happens when you fry a lemon, or mix mushrooms and carrots. Toca Kitchen is a fun way for children to get interested in food and explore without risk of wasting food or creating mess.
Toca Kitchen allows users to play and learn about food from your iPhone or iPad. Users can slice, mix, boil, fry, and prepare food in any way they please, without rules or restrictions. Toca Kitchen features four different characters to prepare food for, each with unique facial expressions and reactions to help users determine if the character enjoys the prepared foods.
My Panda Chef

( iPad - Free )

The kitchen can be an unsafe place for young children, but that won’t stop their interest in exploring all the things in this crafty place. Have them play in the BabyBus kitchen and try out all the fun activities such as preparing food, cooking and juicing, in a less dangerous manner!
