It’s true what they say, that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Af­ter all, there are few other places where you can gather with your loved ones, share a few laughs and work to­gether to cre­ate some­thing spe­cial. A home-cooked meal is also a sym­bol of love – re­mem­ber com­ing home to a de­li­cious hot meal when you were a child? So what better way to re­live those child­hood mem­o­ries and ex­press your love for your kids, than with a yummy dish?

While cook­ing is a fun way to bond with your lit­tle ones, it’s also an op­por­tu­nity for you to in­tro­duce a va­ri­ety of skills. Show­ing them how to weigh in­gre­di­ents and mea­sure out por­tions, for ex­am­ple, is a great way to teach them about maths, and demon­strat­ing var­i­ous cook­ing tech­niques, like bak­ing, boil­ing and fry­ing, teaches them about ba­sic science. In ad­di­tion, cook­ing to­gether en­cour­ages com­mu­ni­ca­tion and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween you and your chil­dren, and gives ev­ery­one a chance to get imag­i­na­tive in the kitchen.
