Campground Cookery for Kids
If you travel and camp with your children and grandchildren, then you probably know how children enjoy cooking s’mores over the campfire. A perennial classic, s’mores are a favorite campfire food. There are, however, many other more nutritious things to cook while camping with children!
We’ve cooked salmon in foil packets, pizzas in biscuit pans, and fruit desserts in our Dutch ovens. If you are seeking inspiration for the younger set, then check out this nifty little book entitled, “Cooking On A Stick,” by Linda White. Less than fifty pages, the book is compact and can easily be stashed into a backpack or a camper cupboard. I like the book because it features simple recipes such as Moose Kebabs, Chameleon Dinner, Hop Toad Popcorn, and Moose Lips! Available through Amazon, it sells for less than $10.
Do you have a favorite campground cookery book? Or, do you just have a repertoire of kid-friendly recipes? If so, do tell! Parents are always looking for ideas in order to keep their campers happy!
