5 benefits of cooking with your child

Are you living with a small picky eater? One way of dealing with a kid who is choosy during meals is cooking with them! By creating kids-friendly recipes and encouraging your child to help, they won’t resist to eat up the meals they created.

Jamie Olivier provides another reason for cooking with kids: the raising obesity in children. ”More concerning still, is the statistic suggesting that only 21% of parents are cooking from scratch every day, which means that the majority of kids are still eating processed food. When you read figures like this, it’s hardly a surprise to learn that around one in five children is overweight or obese before they even start primary school” says the famous cook in his article Why Empowering Parents to Cook With Their Kids Helps Families to Thrive.

Therefore, cooking with kids is not only an opportunity for creating unprocessed & nutritious meals, but also shapes healthy cooking habits in children from  the very beginning.

Teaching kids about the world through science experiments

Acoustic wave, the force of gravity or magnetic field – all of these things can confuse kids or instantly bore them. But there is one way of learning that won’t make them yawn – learning through science experiments! In this way kids can visualize what they are reading about, which can help them understand and memorize a given concept.

Also, contrary to some beliefs, you don’t need sophisticated props to conduct an experiment with a child. You can perform many of them using everyday objects such as a bottle, a fizzy tablet or a sheet of paper.

Check out our infographic for other benefits of learning through experiments. You will also get to know an experiment a child can do right away!
