"Do you think it is necessary for children to learn to cook?"
November 2, 2017 8:04am CST
When my siblings and I in primary school, we started to learn how to cook basic food in the house. My biological parents wanted us to be independent as much as possible. They cannot afford to have a maid during that time. Of course, we were been supervised to cook in the kitchen department. Nowadays, children cannot even touch some plates to fix the table or cook for themselves. Any thoughts about it? Image Credit: pixabay.com

Once in a while I watched Masterchef Junior and it was really amazing to see these kids doing like cooking, baking, preparing among other things at such age. I think if its really their passion and talent no one can stop them but if its not their hobby at all it will be harder for them to cook even the simplest recipe.

I remember back in high school the only viand was ever cooked with the help my classmates was dried fish pork or binagoongan. I think it's mandatory for kids to learn how to cook basic dishes at least. Wished my mom taught me how to cook, but even she didn't have time to cook.

I definitely think children should be taught how to cook and to be made more aware of what they are eating. I also think it can help them to be more independent. I remember my nieces coming to stay when they were about 8 and 6 and neither of them knew how to pour a bottle of milk. They were also confused about the idea of living animals being meat. I think the earlier they learn the better their diets might be too.
It is most likely that children living in the cities were shocked seeing the animals on the farm and can be eaten. I find it entertaining and willingly wanted to educate them. I have some cousins like this. They were all surprised while seeing new things that cannot be seen in big cities.
