Hello! With this mod kids can use the stove and cook normally like other adult sim.

Note: The normal Homestylecooking recipes at this moment. Gourmet and Bake in the stove are locked for kids yet. Need more testing. Sorry for the incovenience.

You need to use this mod along with the unlocked cooking skills for childs and the stove scripts from my other thread.

Could be interesting for story telling. The negligent parents, the kids having to fend for themselves. Might give it a whirl. Thank you for something different.

Amazing! Would you be able to create more mods like that? As an example, create one that allows kids to order at the bars and cafes?

Hello @arkeus17 Sure I give a try. I saw an iteraction for ordering in a bar, just need to be enabled for kids and update the stemachine animation that uses the ordering for kids or replace with another animation statemachine from the game. But dont know if be bad that kids drinks alcohol. And for the cafes I need to search what interaction uses for ordering. But if you say the restauranst of Dine Out. i dont have the Pack. But i give atry for the bar one.

Hi so I tried getting the mod, but it's not coming up for script mods. I tried everything even trying to re-download the mod. I am unsure of what to do. If there is any specific things I need to do when getting please let me now!

Hello @MrSquirrelCheeks

You need to use this mod along with the unlocked cooking skills for childs and the stove scripts from my other thread.

And then click the stove with a child sim selected to cook.

Hey I've been using this mod and Graycurse cooking overhaul for awhile now. Everything was great until the patch with toddlers. I hope you update it because I love this mod! Its unnatural for a child to not be able to at least make grilled cheese!! Thanks again!!

Hi! I've had this mod before the toddler update and was wondering if you would be updating it? :0

Do you know how long it took me to realize that my dysfunctional family actually had to provide food for the kids instead of letting the kid do it. Plus, what if I need me a little cooking prodigy? Thanks for this fix.

Does anyone else play with other craftables/cooking mods? I have been trying to get this to work with a bunch of other mods I'm very attached to, like Icemunmun's harvestables and canning station and Andrew's craftables script. I can get those and necrodog's pizza oven to work (although I do get last exceptions, things functions fine) but not with this installed and I can't figure out what the conflict is. Does anyone have any ideas?

Would be awesome if he updated it, it's really stupid how the base game doesn't let kids cook, as in real life they can cook normally.
I wish I knew anything about modding, so I could try making an updated version...
