Abstract

Cooking with young children is a rewarding experience as an educator. Not only are the children enjoying themselves, but you are too. Cooking allows children to be in touch with their senses, and is a hands-on approach to learning. Of course cooking can be messy, which is what young children love most. Incorporating science, math, literacy, and social studies into one activity is easily done through cooking.

Whether you are a novice or a veteran when it comes to cooking, the skills children gain are immense when you incorporate cooking into the early childhood curriculum. I believe there are some important aspects to cooking that are beneficial, but above all, keeping children healthy and safe is one of the most crucial. This article describes cooking with young children, primarily infants and toddlers, and includes some of my own reflections.
