Barbecue with children: what to do with the little ones?

The beautiful season has finally arrived and with it the desire to be outdoors and enjoy the sun. A perfect opportunity to organize a family barbecue! But how to involve children in this fun and tasty activity?

Remembering that each activity must be carried out under the supervision of an adult, here are some tips and ideas.

What should the children prepare during the barbecue?

Involving children in the preparation is a fun way to teach them a love of food. In addition to the composition of classic burgers, try to include:

Imaginative appetizers : children can help prepare simple appetizers, such as washing and cutting vegetables for a fresh salad, or preparing sandwiches with cured meats and cheeses.

Prepare fun appetizers together such as mixed salads, tomato, basil and mozzarella skewers, vegetable and fruit flowers, skewers with cheese cubes or pretzels with different shapes with ready-made puff pastry.

Accompanying sauces : Sauces are a great way to enrich the flavor of meat and vegetables.

You can prepare simple sauces based on yogurt, mayonnaise or mustard together with the children, or enrich sauces with aromatic herbs. It will be like mixing colors before painting a beautiful picture.

Creative skewers : a simple and fun activity that allows children to unleash their creativity.

Make a selection of colorful ingredients like cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, chicken pieces and peppers and let kids create their own personalized skewers. They can choose the ingredients they like, such as meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.

Under supervision, let the children be the little chefs of the grill. Provide prepared and safe ingredients to add to the skewers. They will be thrilled to see their dishes cooking on the grill.

Help with table setting and decorations : to make the barbecue even more special, children can help decorate the table with colorful tablecloths, flowers and garlands. Involve children in preparing the environment.

Have them arrange cutlery and plates as they like, write or draw a picture to assign seats, and perhaps create simple decorations with flowers or handmade paper doilies.

Contribute to the drinks : If children really want to feel part of the preparation, let the children have fun preparing the drinks.

Prepare jugs of drinks together with simple drinks such as fresh fruit-flavoured waters that you will cut together, freshly squeezed juices such as orange sodas and lemonades with slices of fresh fruit.

They can also decorate glasses with fruit slices or colorful umbrellas.

What to cook for a barbecue?

Considering a mix between adults and children, we always ask parents if there are any intolerances or specific requests for their children.

Barbecue ideas:

  • Meat : sausages, chops, burgers, steaks, ribs.
  • Fish : salmon, tuna, shrimp, calamari.
  • Vegetables : grilled vegetables are a healthy and tasty side dish, opt for courgettes, aubergines, peppers, tomatoes or onions.
  • Fruit for dessert : pineapple, bananas, peaches or apples.

Grill safely with Casus Grill

If children want to participate in the fire, you can use the eco-friendly Casus Grill disposable grill. This option is safe, not dangerous and doesn't have high flames like traditional barbecues, so it's perfect for children.

Supervision : It is important to never leave children unattended near the grill, even if you are using a disposable grill.

Tips for safe embers:

  • Never if it is windy : the wind can fan the flames and make cooking dangerous.
  • Away from trees or brush : the risk of fire is always present, so it is important to choose a safe place.
  • Safe Charcoal : Light the charcoal with a designated igniter and wait until it is completely covered in white ash before starting to cook.
  • Do not use flammable substances : to light the embers, only use special fuels, such as charcoal or firewood.
  • The perfect embers : the embers are ready when they are red and covered with a thread of ash.
