So this mod addresses that problem. However: this ONLY works for all the Maxis fridges. If you have custom fridges, and want them to be child-friendly too, you need to do something about it yourself, alas.
And here's how: open the package of your fridge in SimPE, select the TTAB resource, open it in plug-in view, select interaction 0xA (10), usually named "Baby Bottle", tick the box next to "children", commit file, save, delete groups.cache, and start your game to enjoy your work!
No need for that when it comes to Maxis fridges, though. Because you can download that right here.
UPDATE June 17th, 2012: Obviously, I missed something! The K&B fridges (Solid Sense Fridge and Coldinator) were NOT covered by the initial release of this mod. So here's a fix that requires a little special care:
- Players who DO have K&B, but NOT AL or M&G, should redownload the normal version and put it in Downloads as always.
- Players who DO have AL or M&G, however, do NOT need to redownload (although they *may*), but should pick up the Override in stead, and put it in the "TSData/Res/Overrides" sub-folder of their latest pack's installation folder.
- AGS users who occasionally play without AL/M&G, should probably pick up BOTH files.

On a side note: How come children can't at least make cereal for themselves? It doesn't use the stove or oven or the processor so they wouldn't endanger themselves in anyway. Also is cereal really considered a meal? Like really?
The problem with cereal and some other simple things is a bit complicated: ALL meals are handled by one and the same ENORMOUSLY BIG AND COMPLEX routine. If their preparation was handled from the dishes themselves, it might have been possible to allow kids to make cereal indeed. But since all that knowledge is centralized somewhere else, that's not going to be so easy...
