Why Kids should know Cooking

I believe that cooking should not be gender biased. Each person should know at least basic cooking, so they don’t have to depend on other or restaurants for food. As in these days, kids are going abroad for higher studies or job, cooking becomes a must trait they should know.

When to Teach Kids Cooking

There is no perfect time to teach kids how to cook.As early as they show interest in cooking, just involve them or just make them to see you cook. Ask them for little help while you shop for groceries. Introduce the ingredients and grow their interest. You may be scared of letting kids stand along with you near the hot stove. Even I’m. But make sure they are in safe distance and give them confidence that they can cook or they can help you cook. Let them create their own recipe with bread and ketchup.Start with simple and easy recipes. Just encourage.

  8. Lathiya, it looks like from your very thorough review that this cookbook covers all of what you might want in a book to get children interested in cooking. I agree that it is a necessary lifeskill that is, sadly now, neglected. The Bunny Pancakes are so adorable that they would definitely tempt the least interested child 🙂
