CookingSchools.com, an online directory of culinary colleges, comments on an article published by Huntington News on December 23, which details how teaching kids how to cook at an early age can help them become more self-sufficient adults.
According to the Huntington News article titled “Cooking With Kids: How to Get Your Kids in the Kitchen,” most parents don’t begin teaching their children how to cook until they become teenagers. However, this can prevent children from developing skills needed for their adult lives. While sparking a child’s interest to cook may pose some difficulty, the article suggests a few ways to help them learn.
- Help them cook food they love
- Let them make a mess
- Make it a family activity
- Remember safety precautions
- Gradually increase their cooking duties
Andrew Girard, a representative from CookingSchools.com, a directory of culinary colleges, says learning to cook can be a great asset for children. “Kids that learn how to cook at an early age have a better chance of becoming more self-sufficient as they age,” he says. “It’s definitely a great skill to teach your children and Huntington News lists some great ways to make it a fun and exciting activity.”
Girard also suggests that parents should take cooking classes with their children. “Sometimes learning to cook in a group can be fun,” he says. “Learning how to cook delicious foods in a culinary class might prompt kids to want to continue cooking at home. CookingSchools.com can help children and adults find the best classes and schools to expand their passion for culinary arts or just learning how to cook.”
