Cooking with Kids

Benefits

  • Children love attention and showing them how to cook is a great way to bond with your children.
  • Cooking skills learned at an early age lay the groundwork for healthy eating habits later on in life.
  • It prepares them to be able to fend and cook for themselves at an earlier age.
  • Cooking with kids helps to educate them as to the various types of food to include in their diet as well as the nutritional benefits.
  • Preparing meals together results in sitting down to more family meals together which, in itself, has many positive benefits.

Tips

Start Early

Young children can be given empty pots, wooden spoons and safe play dough to start with so they can pretend to cook with you. Let them help you with simple cookery tasks such as measuring ingredients, placing them into bowls; stirring a pot; cracking eggs or even dressing up a table.

Tidy Kitchen

Start with a clean and tidy kitchen and clean as you go along. Be patient and do expect a mess.

Pick the correct time

Never involve children when you are in a rush to prepare the family meal. Instead set aside a free time such as a weekend morning when the child is more relaxed.
