The Legends of Future
Don’t tell me you missed out on looking at the most aww-adorable 1-year-old munchkin Chef-Kobe!!!
Kobe not only surprises everybody with his innocent handling of the pots and eatables but the reactions he makes on every step takes your heart away. The child is no less than a prodigy to hook over 1.4 Million followers on Instagram to see what he makes.
Although assisted in a great way by his parents through the preparation and recipes, his cuddly cheeks steal the show.
And you gotta be kidding me if you didn’t hear about the little Kicha (Nihal Raj) who is conquering hearts through his passion for cooking and the ease with which he enjoys performing in the cookery videos without a script! This talent-house hails from Kerala, India.
I would like you to ponder over something now. When we water a plant properly in the bud stage, would it not flourish for a longer period? Obviously YES! Cooking is the most basic life skill, and if taught early promotes a positive attitude and enjoyment for life.
The skill of cooking might turn out to be the biggest source of pride for the adolescent.
Any kitchen is like a learning lab for children, where they are encouraged to involve all of their senses.
Get your kids cooking at a young age and you gift them the most important prowess of life. The Lifetime Gift! I mean tell me one person in the entire universe who does not eat? And what better than to cook your own meal? I think it makes complete sense!!! Doesn’t it?
Patience is a key skill required in the kitchen space. Ask your kid to wash up some veggies and transfer in a pot. Teach them to watch the veggies until cooked/ tender. Trust me they will learn the art of- “Waiting for something”. You show me a better activity to teach them patience. I’d love to hear from you. Delayed Gratification (wink)
Needless to mention, that through this skill; the value of money will be programmed in your toddler’s being at a very early age. They will be like- “Mommy! If we can cook up amazing food at home then what’s the point in eating out?
Cooking is all about living and feeling your ingredients. The idea about healthy foods and healthy cooking methods will go deep in the mind and all by itself, the kid will choose healthy over junk. Doesn’t this sound great to all the parents out there?
Well, what’s more for the kids? Language, cognitive, personal awareness, socio-emotional, fine, and even gross motor skills are refined when they undertake activities such as chopping, pouring, grating etc.
Let me not bombard you with loads of information now. Enough!!! LOL. Cooking is simple and good old- fashioned fun. Period!!!
