THE Tip To Teach Your Kids About Cutting Onions

We are always in the kitchen. It’s one reason I love participating in the Party In the Kids’ Kitchen link up party (see below). There is so much learning that happens while our kids are in the kitchen. Today I want to share THE one tip your kids can’t do without while cutting onions!

Onions are in most dishes we make for dinner. They have great taste which really adds to any savory dish. My kids think it is a lot of fun to cut onions and inspect all the layers. But crying while cutting is just no fun!

How can we help our kids enjoy being in the kitchen while they are concerned about burning eyes and uncomfortable smells?

THE one tip to teach kids while they cut onions is to breath out of your mouth while cutting onions. It works like a charm no matter how potent the onion. Breathing through your mouth bypasses the olfactory nerves, which can cause tears, and instead moved the onion gasses over your wet tongue.

This week I taught Samuel this trick. He is 4 and can follow directions very well. Avalyn (2) did not catch on to this trick as easily and chose to leave the onion cutting to her brother.

A couple cutting tools that would be helpful for your child while they are cutting onions are:

Scallion Cutter Shred Tool

Steel Onion Holder 

Onion Chopper

I hope by teaching your child this trick  and using some fun and helpful kitchen tools they will be able to explore a new vegetable and be excited about helping you in the kitchen!
