Cooking together can be an amazing chance to bond with your children. But it can also be a time filled with learning opportunities.

You can teach them about measuring as you’re weighing the ingredients.

You can practice counting as you stir.

They can get better at telling the time as you set timers the food that is cooking.

And they can begin to learn important life skills such as how food is made and good hygiene skills.

So what are you waiting for – go and wash your hands and get cooking!
