Cooking and baking is almost everybody’s passion. Some do it for passion and some for profession. But, when it comes to kids, it is not only messy, time consuming and a delicious thing to do, but mostly about learning. Children are always curious to learn new things and explore the new methods. When they cook, they are as excited about it as much they are for the finished product. The complete process of collecting the ingredients, adding and mixing them together and creating something unique in the end is what drives passion in kids. And don’t we as adults love to see them busy

doing something unique.

Most importantly, kids do not even realize that they are learning a lot while in the process of cooking or baking (baking equipment online), all because they are having fun in doing so.

Children not just make food or a dish, but learn science in action including basic math, time saving skills, choosing what’s best in turn building their confidence. They enhance their creativity and communication skills as well.

Here’s what your kids learn while trying their hands on those cooking and baking skills:

Responsibility

When trying to cook, kids get the feeling of being grown up and hence, they feel really special about it. If given them the flexibility in the kitchen to try out whatever new they want to, they feel like proving themselves. They feel responsible for the same. This sense of responsibility, in turn gives them confidence.

Measurement

Measurement is the most important aspect in baking. From measuring cups to measuring spoons and measuring scales, children have a plenty of items to learn and understand from baking. For example, when they make a pound cake (silicone cupcake mould online India), they find out how much ingredients should weigh and what should be the accurate volume of ingredients required.

Spelling

Different recipes have different ingredients and there are a plenty of names they posses; names on food packets, names of recipes, names of ingredients etc. Children take effort to read and spell these names, in turn polishing their spellings of different new words. They also understand what labeling, leavening, blending etc. actually mean.

Nutrition

The basis of all cooked food for kids should be how healthy it is. They learn the value of certain food they eat or cook. They learn why a particular ingredient is healthy and why they should eat healthy food.

Science

Cooking and baking is all about science. Kids learn why cakes rise? Why does a particular ingredient changes form and colour when heated? They end up learning why a particular ingredient acts in a way it does.

Emotional and Social Development

Cooking is one of the great mediums of communication as well. Children learn to share; they learn to take turns and acquire a lot more understanding if they indulge in a cooking activity with their siblings. This leads to their emotional as well as social development.

Increases self-esteem

Well, there’s nothing more pleasing thana sense of achievement. It not only instills confidence but also increases one’s self-esteem. Hence, cooking or baking is yet another way to boost a child’s confidence. When a child cooks, family enjoys and this in turn boosts their confidence. Letting them do their things by themselves in kitchen is one step towards raising their self-esteem.
