Once you get things set up I'd love to see pictures/hear more!
I agree about skipping the slicers. My kids learned to slice with a butter knife at 2.5 and with a real knife at 4.5. I use mason jars to prepare dry oatmeal mixes and to store yogurt for them.

We use a few step stools in the kitchen due to floor space. Once I move the baby seats out, I might do something similar with a coffee table.
