Parenting Tips: Know why it is important to involve children in the cooking process?
Cooking is an art that every person should know. Depending on someone else for food will only harm you. Therefore, parents should teach children to make small things right from childhood. If you want to teach your child to cook, then you have to keep some things in mind, so that the child can learn to cook while keeping his safety in mind.
There is no need to take separate time for this. All you have to do is keep your child with you under your supervision whenever you cook in the kitchen. Gradually, by watching you, the child will learn to cook food on his own.
Let us know how to involve children in the cooking process –
Keeping children who are reluctant to eat food with them while cooking develops interest in food. But do not bring a very young child into the kitchen. Start bringing your child to the kitchen when he is at least 4 to 5 years old.
Cooking helps children develop intellectually and physically. Children get to know about different types of vegetables, grains, fruits, and spices. Show them all these things while cooking.
By keeping children together in the kitchen, they learn about things like scraping, turning, rolling, beating, peeling, cutting, and squeezing, which are new experiences for them and enhance their motor skills.
By measuring and making things, children's interest in maths increases, and their calculations become better.
Teach children to decorate the dinner table. Ask for plates, glasses, bowls and spoons to be decorated. This will give them management qualities.
Use electric appliances only when the child is at least 14 years of age and is aware of the precautions related to electric appliances.
