My daughters, who are now in summer holidays, yesterday cooked and made a wonderful cake out of oats without any sugar or sweet. It is really highly tasty and sweetless cake, which is a needy one to the persons like me, who is a diabetic person. Really now even children are expert in cooking also.

Wow that's great, I myself learned how to cook (Stir Fry) when I was 6, and because of this I have learned a valuable lesson in independence. Now I am an adult I just need ingredients and a way to cook food and viola! I have dinner. Fast paced people now a days don't usually appreciate the value of a home cooked meal. And the love that goes into dishes. Filipinos take pride in cooking especially because we are a happy bunch, we look for any reason to celebrate. So cooking for kids I believe is essential for them to enjoy life, cooking can be a hobby, it can build self esteem and its fun (With adult supervision of course.) You should teach them a new recipe and lets see how they will interpret it to match their taste. Seafoods and crunchy veggies like zucchini and carrots and the cabbage family (eg. cauliflower, brussle sprouts "eew" and broccoli.) are good ingredients and children can go wild with their imagination for any new recipe they dream of. Fruits are a good ingridient for baking its nutritious and filled with energy. So I can only say good job!!

Wow I love indian spicy foods...you should start teaching them curries and how to make pampedam 'Did I say that correctly" your cuisine smell and look yummy even if its prepared simply and quickly. A Filipino-Indian dish that we love in the Philippines is Chicken Curry I myself am adept with it :)

My kids are now cooking well and also tastier. Hope that everyone should encourage their children in this line. This is a good hobby and also they will have tendancy to think about the varieties of taste and will avoid asking us to take them to hotels and spend money and spoil our stomach

My kids both started cooking at fairly young ages...they started out using the stovetop when they were around 8 and 10, and have been using the oven for a few yrs now and are even allowed to bbq BUT I still wont let them light the bbq cause I'm far too paranoid about that LOL

My kids are loving the work they are doing, hence it is much tastier. Also we feel it is the food prepared by our kids we find it more tastier

When i were kid, all time when my grandmother cook something good for us, i were there in the kitchen, not just because i want to be first who eat shes delicious sweets or food, but because all the time she let me to make something easy to help she, and this for me were so "important" work...now my sons make same, they like to much to stay in the kitchen and "help" me with something, but usual they help me with "eating:"....all time when they are home make this, like to eat something until we eat all toghether on the table. They like in special when i cook some sweets, they really adore to be there, in the kitchen.

My kids love to help me out in the kitchen all the time too..especially when I am baking. I try to let them help as much as they can but there are some of the things that I make that I rather they just stand back and lick the spoon or bowl when I am done. Because some of the things that I make are just too risky for them with either the stove or the mixers, I just don't want them to get hurt. But I do love when they help me when I am baking or cooking..it is so nice :)
