Cooking for Kids Overview
(scroll this section to read all)



Learning to cook can be great fun for boys and girls alike. Some of the famous chefs in the world are male and female so if you have any interest at all in making wonderful creations, having fun and learning a new skill then look no further.

Other added benefits of learning how to cook are that you will learn all about nutrition and learn all about balanced meals and what different foods you can have. It also means you get to try lots of different foods from all over the world! Some you won't like but some you will love! You can also improve your math, reading and science skills too as an added bonus! You may enjoy spending some quality time with your parents or carers when the focus is on having fun and creating something together.

And once you get good at it, which will come with practice, it can give you a great sense of achievement and self esteem. You may even find you enjoy cooking for the family which will help out your parents or guardians from time to time.

One of the key things to understand at first is Food Safety (safe buying, safe storing, safe handling, safe cooking and safe food storage) and Kitchen Safety. This is something your parents/guardians can teach you but we also have lots of great games and resources to help you learn all about it as well. In addition our articles here are a good starting point: 'FOOD SAFETY' and 'KITCHEN SAFETY'

The first steps are to ask your parents or carers to spend some time showing you how to measure, weigh etc. then how to prepare various foods. The next step would be learn basic cooking techniques (boiling, grilling etc.) and to go through a number of recipes. After that, maybe you could get a recipe book for budding young chefs. The sky really is the limit.

Make sure you start with simple dishes first and don't be afraid to help choosing some beautiful (and different) ingredients for your next exciting recipe. Maybe one day you will have a book published!
