14 ways to protect your children from burns at home

Keep kids somewhere safe while cooking

Children should be kept a safe distance away from the hazards involved in cooking.

Although it might be easier to keep track of an infant or toddler in your arms, avoid holding your children while you are cooking. Instead, secure your child in a safe area, such as a playpen or highchair, to avoid burns from spattering sauces or accidental contact with a hot object or heating element.
