Teaching children cooking is such a useful life skill and a big step towards developing future independence. Literacy is another big part of my lessons as we will be reading recipes aloud, talking about ingredients and following cooking procedures.

Being involved in the handling of food can also be wonderful for encouraging a child to be more adventurous when it comes to trying new foods. Sensory experiences are wonderful for brain development and cooking encourages all their senses, seeing, hearing, smelling, touching and most fabulously tasting!

Motor skills for example stirring, whisking, peeling, beating, kneading provide the opportunity to develop physical skills � both fine (fingers, hands and co-ordination ) and gross (arm and body) motor skills.

Cooking introduces mathematical concepts to children especially with abstract concepts such as those related to measurements, number and sequencing.

Children feel a real sense of achievement when they have prepared and made food themselves it is wonderful for their self-esteem.
