Before cooking talk to your child about the importance of washing their hands before preparing food.

Explain to your child that they will be making themselves some hot food. This could be for a lunch snack. If they do not like cheese they could make beans on toast instead. They need to take special care when using the grill and take precautions such as using oven gloves. They will need to be supervised by an adult at all times when using the oven.

 

Support your child in following the instructions sheet. Encourage them to have a go at grating the cheese and slicing the tomatoes.
