Cooking with toddlers is a fun and interactive way to teach your children valuable skills that they will use for the rest of their life. Not only will it provide them with important life skills, but teaching children cooking at a young age can foster a lifelong culinary passion. The benefits of cooking with toddlers will be reaped throughout their life. When it comes to baking or cooking, here are four skills a child can develop in the kitchen.

Proper Hygiene and Sanitation

From washing your hands to cleaning up, cooking with children helps them develop good hygiene habits that will be useful in life. Before you cook anything, it is a good idea to wash your hands and check the quality of the ingredients. Washing dishes after will also remind them of the importance of cleaning up when finished. It may seem like negligible skills, but good habits have to be learned somewhere.

Working in a Team

When toddlers help out in the kitchen, they are growing the skill set needed to be a successful member of a team. This includes understanding the assignment, following directions, and completing their tasks. By giving your toddler a job to do, for example, stirring batter, they get to see firsthand how their effort can help make the final product come to life.

Developing Academic and Motor Skills

The kitchen is a powerful learning environment due to the real-life lessons it provides. From measuring how many cups of flour a recipe needs to pronouncing certain ingredients, it gives toddlers an interactive way to retain information. Also, recipes like pizzas or tacos are a great way to develop a child’s motor skills as well. And getting their hands involved helps to keep them interested and will develop some dexterity.

Spending Time with the Family

The great thing about cooking is that it brings people together. The main benefit we always bring up is the extra time you get to spend with your loved ones. Instead of dinner pulling you away from your kids, you can now get them involved. The best part about teaching a toddler how to cook is that it can spark a potentially lifelong tradition between you and your children. Every Friday could be a family dinner night where all hands are on deck with prepping dinner. And considering how many families would love to spend time together, it could be a benefit that pays dividends for years to come. Tiny Trends Design Co. is a homegrown Canadian business.
