Description


When you tell people that you teach your 2-year-old kid to cook, they will look at you like you have three heads. For many parents, just involving their kids into the cooking picture, might be so exciting and a nice time investment. This time invested from cooking with your kid and it’s compelling when looking on the short-term and long-term benefits. Your kids will be more likely to eat what they cook and become more adventurous in trying and tasting new things. When they reach the age of 8, they will be able to make simple meals such as scrambled eggs, and even more complicated dishes. Learning these essential life skills of cooking means that child will be able to cook for yourself in college and even his own family. The main reason we love to introduce kids to cook is that it’s possible to teach every single kid, no matter of age, and that there’s no need of any academic skills in this process. Cooking it’s a nice activity that you can split in dozens of tasks; each kid can take the requested challenges. If you are new in teaching kids of how to cook, show them the task and then let them do it on their own manner, and help them just only when you see they are struggling. Each kid is defined by its maturity and dexterity, and after a few cooking sessions together, you will have your own in-house sous chefs. Most toddlers love helping you out in the kitchen and can learn new tasks quickly. This group of kids, however, needs a very close adult supervision, a lot of space and large bowls while developing their dexterity. The tasks with minimal assistance that they can do are squeezing the lemons, washing fruits and vegetables in the sink, picking fresh herb leaves and rip them from the stems, sprinkling condiments over the food, etc. The 6, 7-year-olds usually can develop much more complex skills in the kitchen. They still need your supervision and reminders to watch their fingers while grating, cutting or peeling. This aged group kids excel on: slicing and scooping avocados, tofu, rinsing beans and other grains, pouring liquids into different containers and garnishing (decorating) dishes. The older your kids are the independent they can be in the kitchen. We think that a 10 or a 12-year-old kid can work together with his adult parent into more skilled and complicated dishes, and even preparing dinners or desserts. The most important thing, when it comes to cook with your kids, it’s that you will always need to interact with them, and explain for them the safety cooking and other techniques that kids might need to follow. Don’t forget to practice with your kids different dishes, because they will only learn new things by practicing and trying. We assure you that time spent with your children it’s very useful and they will get so excited and attached to food, and moreover, to you.
