Cooking is really easy and you should not be afraid to experiment. If your family loves food so much, encouraging your kids to cook and help you in the kitchen is not a bad idea. Hence, it will give you more quality time to bond with them. Kids must see adults cooking at home. If you don't like cooking, it is likely your children won't take to it either. Don't force your children to learn to cook. It should be personally initiated. Don't force them to attend cooking lessons if they are not up to it. Encourage kids who love to eat to cook. If they love eating, they will most likely try to explore different tastes and ways of doing food. I have 2 kids and both love to eat, when they are not doing anything I ask them to help me out in the kitchen.
