As soon as your child is old enough to open the pantry door, you should look into making your pantry as kid friendly as possible. Not only do you want to make it easy for your child to get healthy snacks from the pantry, but you also want to ensure your pantry is safe for your child. CCC has the tools and design options to transform your pantry.
The key to a kid-friendly pantry is organizing the goods in your pantry into different categories. Take inventory of what you have in your pantry and divide them into the following groups: snacks, drinks, paper and plastic ware, pasta and sauces, cans and jars, baking supplies, breakfast foods, and miscellaneous. You can remove, add, and change the categories as you see fit.
Once you've organized your inventory into different categories, you should purchase large containers and label them. The containers that you want your child to be able to access should be placed on one of the bottom shelves in your pantry. Containers that you don't want your child to be able to access should be placed out of reach. For example, if you have a container of healthy snacks, you should place this container on the bottom shelf for accessibility. In contrast, the container for cans and jars should be on one of the top shelves.
