4 Easy Cooking Lessons for Kids

Kids love eating food they've helped to prepare. If they're comfortable making meals in the kitchen from an early age, they'll be much more likely to continue to cook and eat healthier food when they grow up. Use these easy cooking lessons to turn your kids into kitchen helpers and to inspire their culinary creativity.

  1. Measuring: Hand out the cups and spoons and have the kids start measuring out ingredients. Since they're still learning, you should double check before you add their portions to your recipe. Try this tasty Chicken Chow Mein recipe to test their skills.
  2. Dicing and mincing: Older kids and teens can move on to dicing and mincing. Be sure to supervise very carefully!
  3. Plating: Encourage your children to add an artistic touch to their meals. These plating techniques are fun and easy ways to get kids involved in the kitchen.
  4. Cleanup: This is an important step that most people don't think about when it comes to the cooking process. And let's face it—it's always nice to get some extra help with doing the dishes.
