Cooking is a fun activity that you can share with your children that can bring out their creativity and help build self esteem. It is also a way to get children to try new things and eat healthier. If you start them out young, they can learn that cooking doesn't have to be difficult, and that it can be really rewarding! Young chefs are popping up every day and bringing their fresh ideas to the culinary world. Who knows, your child could be the next Rachael Ray or Bobby Flay. So next time you are in the kitchen cooking dinner and your child wants to help; let them! Include them in cooking and hopefully they will develop a passion for it, just as you did.
