I believe cooking is an important life skill children must have. We teach them how to read, write, do math, tie their shoe laces, be kind, be respectful and many other life skills. Teaching children how to cook not only helps them develop a healthy relationship with food, but also helps them to stay focused, remember what they learn and keep their moods balanced and happy.
Even more importantly, knowing how to cook will help future adults become self-sufficient in the kitchen and help them avoid fast food and frozen dinners as much as possible. These skills will also help them avoid obesity and related chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease in the future.
