The Benefits of Teaching Children to Cook



When it comes to teaching your children, not all of your help has to be with their homework. Below is an article from Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem with just two of the many benefits your children can see from you teaching them how to cook.

Math Lessons

Believe it or not, cooking include a fair amount of basic math. Whether it’s converting a recipe, counting or subtracting food items, right through to planning all of the items to be cooked and ready at the same time. While it may seem like second nature to you, don’t discount the benefits your child can receive from these incidental math lessons.

Help Them to Eat Better

Through children's fitness classes, like the ones hosted by Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem, NC, children learn about how to make healthy food choices at home and at the school canteen. Teaching them how to cook gives them a way to put these lessons into practice. For example, your child can help you to substitute ingredients which they have learned are better than their replaced items. Actually using their lessons will work as a great reinforcement and help them to see (and taste) the benefits of their fitness classes.

Children’s Exercise Classes Are a Great Benefit to Every Child

If your child doesn’t get much exercise at school or when they return home, it can not only affect their growth but also their brain. To find out more about children’s fitness classes near you, speak with a friendly expert at Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem, NC by calling (336) 287-1193.
