Big Cook, Little Cook

Spending time in the kitchen and cooking new recipes helps children to develop a positive connection to all different types of foods including fruits and vegetables. Forming a positive experience with fresh foods is so important because healthy foods are the foundation for good nutrition. Children will also learn basic cooking skills that they can use for the rest of their lives.

Cooking with kids provides practical experience with many essential skills such as reading, following directions, and measuring. Getting involved in cooking helps your child to develop fine motor skills, eye hand coordination, and even early concepts of math and science.

This programme starts with an arts and craft activity such as making and decorating your very own chef’s hat, then children help prepare ingredients for a healthy snack such as muffins or  pittza.

All ingredients are provided, please note children are not allow access to kitchen facilities.
