Father’s Day Menu 2023
This weekend is Father’s Day in the UK and it’s the perfect opportunity to get the kids involved in some cooking. Creating a menu with kids and letting them prepare food is great for their learning and development, it helps build self-confidence and gives them valuable skills that will set them up for a healthy future too. Cooking together can also be a really enjoyable way to spend time together at home, as long as you’re willing to accept that the clean-up might take a bit more effort!
Mushrooms are a great introduction to cooking for children because they’re easy to cut and don’t need a sharp knife. Kids can even pull them apart with their hands instead of cutting.
Here are some recipe ideas that you can cook up for a special Father’s Day treat.

Chicken, mushroom and parmesan spaghetti
Spaghetti is enjoyed by most kids, so their recipe means that everyone will enjoy a delicious dinner without too much fuss.
Truffle, potato and mushroom pizzas with no-knead dough
This one is perfect for the foodie-Father, but all the ingredients can be replaced with something more accessible in your local supermarket and the truffles aren’t essential. The no-knead dough is perfect for small hands too.
