There is a natural curiosity and creativity in children that lends itself perfectly to cooking. Inviting children to cook and involving them at a very young age fosters good habits that will have lifelong benefits. It provides early learning educators with a wonderful opportunity to discuss with a 3 year old how fish can help make you smart and to talk informally about types and origins of food, food production and nutrition.
This interactive workshop explores ways that cooking related activities can help children learn basic skills, build self-confidence and better understand nutritional concepts.
At its very core, cooking with children should be about fun, connection, and exploration.
