The benefits of cooking classes for kids

cooking-1140

Getting kids to eat well has long been a struggle for parents. After a long day of work it can be hard to come home and make a meal that Jamie Oliver would be proud of. On the school front, things are not much better. In (Calgary) Alberta, like most provinces in Canada, physical education time is being eaten up (for give the term) by math, science literacy and all the other “important” subjects. To be sure, literacy and numeracy are extremely important, but so is healthy eating. Moreover, school cafeteria food is often not the most healthy and vending machines (selling all the bad stuff) are pervasive in (Calgary) Alberta schools.

What is a parent to do? Send your kids to cooking school! The CBC’s flagship news program, The National, recently did a segment on the benefits of cooking courses for kids. These courses could have long-lasting impacts on the kids that are fortunate enough to benefit from them. Despite the research, there is also a great deal of common sense here. When you (a) understand an activity, in this case cooking, and (b) associate the activity with positive experience, surely you are more likely to try it again. Lucky for you, we offer such cooking classes. Best of all, the cooking classes are geared towards a French Immersion clientele, so you learn cooking and speaking!
