Cooking for children: benefits

It’s never too early for the little ones to start enjoying cooking. The benefits of a healthy relationship with food are fundamental to the creation of healthy eating habits. In addition, by cooking, children learn the properties of food, practice measurement, reading comprehension and begin to understand the science behind food and its interaction.

Cooking helps children train their palate and learn about the culinary culture of countries around the world, works their creativity and fosters teamwork. Although they are not usually part of the school curriculum, group cooking activities have so many benefits that many teachers have taken the plunge and taken advantage of events such as Halloween or Christmas to practice simple recipes with their students. In addition to the practical classes, it is interesting to discover with the children the culinary cultures of different countries and to explore where the food we eat originally comes from.
