There are various types of kid safe knives that make a great addition to your kids kitchen tool kit. We absolutely love the Curious Chef plastic kids knife, they offer 3 different sizes and have a great grip for little hands.
Young kids can start off by cutting soft ingredients like hard boiled eggs, butter, strawberries or mushrooms. As they gain more practice & confidence in properly using a knife, they can start to chop various foods.
Here are some guidelines to using a knife safely. Remember these are just basic tips and you know your child best, so only let your kid do what YOU are comfortable with.
