Let’s lick the spoon!
At a time when childhood obesity rates are higher than ever and food related illnesses have reached almost epidemic proportions globally, any weapon in the arsenal to tackle diet based problems must be embraced. Recent studies have shown that children that cook at home are more likely to have positive, healthy food experiences, allowing them to make better food choices throughout their lives. It’s not just about health though; cooking with children subjects them to all manner of subliminal learning experiences, allowing them to learn without even realising they’re being taught. A win win in anyone’s book!! Time to don that apron then, and get them started as soon as they can hold that mixing spoon!
