And it’s not just fruit and veg that the kids are getting their hands on; some schools have chickens, pigs and bees, giving them a real sense of responsibility for the animal\’s welfare.
The benefits of these initiatives are numerous; as well as promoting healthy eating habits, they also give children a greater appreciation for where their food comes from. And let’s not forget the valuable life skills that are being learned, such as teamwork, patience and perseverance.
So next time your child comes home from school raving about the delicious lunch they made themselves, you can rest assured that they’re getting a nutritious meal and gaining some valuable life experience. And that’s got to be worth something.
In addition to the feel-good factor, cooking with kids has some practical benefits. For example, it can help to build their confidence in the kitchen and encourage them to try new things.
So, if you’re looking for a way to get your children more involved in the kitchen, why not sign them up for a cookery class at their school? It could be the start of a lifelong love affair with food!
