You know it’s going to be messy. You pray they don’t sneeze into the mixing bowl. You understand the patience of a saint will be required just to make a simple snack.
But the benefits of cooking with your kids far outweigh the mess and stress. This is one of the most important activities to share with children as we all need to eat.
We may get through life without ever painting that canvas we had planned, or knitting a scarf, but we won’t get through life without food.
We may not all become chefs, but if we are taught at an early age to understand food – where it comes from, what it does, we are more likely to make wise eating choices later in life.
