Hi. I am hoping that you can help me come up with some ideas. My daughter (now 2) is very eager to "help" in the kitchen, and LOVES to do anything like this. Problem is that all of the parenting web sites list PB as the major and in some cases sole ingredient in "toddler recipes".... grrr.

BTW: she is also soy, wheat, and egg allergic.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Matt (3 1/2) likes to help make fruit smoothies -- orange or apple juice, frozen banana chunks, and strawberries are our most popular combination. Raspberries are quite good, too, but used to clog the valves on his sippy cups, so we stopped using them!
Fun to push the buttons, and fun to drink -- and a quick way to get three extra servings of fruit.
He also likes to make bean burritos -- we use whole wheat tortillas, (but you could substitute corn) refried beans, shredded cheese (soy in our case, but obviously the real stuff would be as good or better!) and sometimes mild salsa. Spreading, sprinkling, rolling and microwaving -- not too messy, and a decent source of protein.
I'm experimenting with an eggless blueberry pancake recipe, and have been very pleased so far. It is 1/3 (1/2 cup) oat flour, so I imagine it could be tweaked to incorporate rice flour in place of the wheat.
Enough measuring and stirring to be fun, and the potential for her to eventually be the blueberry "sprinkler". After all, cooking is even more fun when it turns your fingers funny colors! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
Have fun...
