Why You Should Cook With Your Kids

If you’re a parent, you know quite well how hard it is to balance parenting, cooking, and every other thing you’re trying to accomplish in life. For this reason, it can be hard to compartmentalize everything, which can lead to overwhelming feelings of frustration. But we’re here to tell you that one good way to balance these things is to actually combine them—safely of course.

Cook While Parenting, But Safely

We can’t stress strongly enough that safety is obviously the number one priority. As long as you’re making sure that your child is not around any knives or dangerous surfaces, you should totally invite him or her into your cooking process.

Makes Them Feel Accomplished

When you invite your little child into the kitchen to do an easy task such as cracking an egg, it’ll make them feel good about themselves. It’ll make them feel like they accomplished something—that they helped you, their number one hero, make whatever it is you’re making. This leads us to our next point.

It’s a Bonding Moment

Cooking with your child is a great way to bond with them. Not only are you giving them attention, but you’re bringing them into your world, and in many ways, showing them that they’re on your level. This will help build trust, support, and love in your home.
