Getting children into the kitchen and teaching them to cook is an excellent way to help them appreciate the foods they are eating and teach them an important skill that will last a lifetime. Not only are they able to learn about food, but also be taught the ins and outs of the kitchen.

Hot stoves, sharp knives and scalding water are just some of the dangers in the kitchen. Little cooks are eager to roll up their sleeves and get cooking, but are not able to handle a lot of the tasks. Here are some ingredients to make cooking with kids a tasty experience:

When you feel that your child is ready, get cooking! When you notice that your child is curious and showing some interest with meal preparations, it’s definitely time to work with them in the kitchen. If your child doesn’t show any interest but is 5+ years old, you may want to encourage their participation with a recipe.



Picky eaters turn into adventurous diners when they prepare their own meal! Pull out some cookbooks and take your little chef to the store with you. Including them in the entire process will get your child excited about the end result and typically that includes happily eating the dish they helped to make.
