Is it OK to say “Saya mengingatkan mereka memasak makan malam.” without “untuk”? If so, is the version with “untuk” more natural?

Hi, i know it has taken a year for you to get your answer but, if you do not use the untuk, it doesn't have the "to" part of the equation. I remind them cook dinner

Native Indonesian would understand that. But it would sound a bit weird. And yeah, "untuk" should be used because the stress is on that word to explain what will come after...
