toddler cooking and germaphobes

So if you have your toddler or young child help you cook (making cookies for example), do you feel ok giving them to friends and co-workers? Or family? Or only people that actually live in the same house with you?

I admit I'm a borderline germ freak. I wash my hands, cooking surfaces and utensils about a billion times while cooking. I just don't know if it's considered acceptable to give them to anyone. Would it gross you out to get them from someone?

  • My family eats them and close friends but I always have ones that I just made myself but usually you can tell the ones my daughter helped make because they aren't perfect. I'm a culinary person so everything is weighed and shaped right when I do it
