Why enroll in a kids cooking class?

Culinary education is one of the most effective strategies we can use to combat the childhood obesity epidemic. Hands-on activities such as cooking are powerful ways to transmit healthy habits to children. Teaching children basic cooking skills such as knife skills, sauteing, roasting, and how to transform raw ingredients into a tasty, balanced meal means they can feed themselves healthy meals for the rest of their lives. The more proficient our children are in the kitchen, the less dependent they’ll be on packaged and fast foods. When kids bring home recipes they know how to prepare, they ultimately influence how the entire family approaches food. Learning how to cook from scratch also means that families on a budget can prepare nutritious, inexpensive meals with plant-based ingredients like beans and rice.

Kids who can cook develop confidence and self-assurance, and a greater understanding of the world in a range of ways. Here are just some of the reasons you should teach your kids to be little master chefs!

Responsibility
Kids love the opportunity to feel grown-up and cooking makes kids feel really special. Given the opportunity to do as much as possible by themselves – if they’re closely supervised and activities are age-appropriate you’ll be surprised at how responsible kids can be.

Science and chemistry
Why do cakes rise? How do egg whites turn from this clear, sticky stuff into glossy white peaks? When you think about it – cooking and baking are pretty cool science lessons.

Measurement and volume
Understanding measurement and volume.  Students will be using measuring cups and spoons but also measuring with a scale.

Spelling
Sounding out the words in recipes, or reading ingredients from packets in the pantry can help children with their spelling and reading. It also helps when they need to recognize words and connect the word “flour” in a recipe with the word “flour” on a pack.

Nutrition
It’s surprising how a fussy kid will try a new food when it’s something he’s cooked himself.  Cooking helps children understand why we eat the foods we do, what foods go well together, and what we need to include for a balanced meal.

Cultural studies
Children can learn more about the world through cooking. they eat the way they do? What foods are popular in certain nations and how does the way they eat differ from ours.

Increases self-esteem
There’s nothing like a sense of achievement to improve self-esteem. Cooking is a great way to boost children’s confidence as the results are quick – and there for the whole family to enjoy.
