Cooking is a fantastically fun and engaging way for children to learn about and try new foods. Research shows that children are more likely to try new and refused foods if they are involved in the preparation and cooking of it! Preparing meals with others, whether that be with other children in a nursery setting or at home with their family, can provide children with the opportunity to develop their social and communication skills and learn how to work as part of a team.
