When my boys were little, we didn't have any door handles on our lower kitchen cabinets.

I just hooked a bungee cord from the door at one end, across the front of all the cabinet doors, to the door at the other end.

My son couldn't get in!

Thanks to Betsy for this Frugal Baby Tip!

NOTE: Some children might still be able to undo these cords, and they could snap back - so it is always best to monitor your child, do not leave them alone in the kitchen.
