Why Teach Kids How to Cook at Petits Chefs Academy?

I started kids cooking activities and kids cooking lessons with my children after my eldest daughter would create “something” in the kitchen almost every day. She would fill a pot with water, add sugar, salt, apples, whatever she could find and ask me to cook it on the stove top. She didn’t want to follow a recipe. She just wanted to create something using, whatever she could think of. I came to understand how much kids love to cook and want to help in the kitchen.
When they are young they pretend to cook in the kitchen, we even buy them ready made kids sized kitchens which can run up in price depending on the features, they make mud pies in the sandbox, and even set a whole meal plan using play dough?
Kids do cooking activities all the time and we must encourage them to have fun, experiment and further hone in on this life skill as they grow.
