Cooking up creativity and fun!


Welcome kids into the kitchen to cook with you. Younger kids can help with even the smallest tasks, like stirring cookie dough or setting the table. Older kids can measure and mix. Teens can get even more involved. Here are some fun and creative ideas that invite the entire family into the kitchen together this summer:

Turn a bagel into a Breakfast Buddy. Spread half a bagel with Jif® Peanut Butter, scatter on your favorite breakfast cereal for hair, add a banana slice nose and raisin (or chocolate chip) eyes.

Make Striped Apples. Core a red and green apple of similar sizes. Slice each into 4-5 rounds. Spread each round with Jif Peanut Butter. Re-stack the apple slices, alternating red and green slices, to create 2 "striped" apples.
