How to teach your baby to cook?

Cooking and eating with Edie

There is not such a think like that. They are just there with you and if you want to avoid your kids in the kitchen you will be rather punished by them than you will reach your goal.

I can prove easily that Edie loves cooking. I think that he already found the magic of helping in the kitchen. Because it is not work, it is fun and there is always something worth to try, worth to mix, worth to eat and taste. There are always good things as leftovers and you will be never hungry. And you know how funny it is to see him sneeaking close by pots, trying to put his head insight just to see what is insight? And then to hear jeeee, juuuuu, jiiiii his surprised smiling face 🙂

I have more fun with him than troubles. He is such a clean boy in his way. If he gets dirty he is looking for a napkin to clean his little fingers. He loves to mix things in the pot and the most be pouring and adding different things into the food.

Look how he was helping me while preparing potato christmas salad. We were like manufacture. I was peeling potatoes and he was kind of smashing them or pushing them through the iron form.

And if you still do not believe me that he likes cooking look how he was helping to cook when we were visiting our AIESEC friends during the New Years time. Edie as a big chef.

And proof of all his likeness of the kitchen adventures and all processes which are happening. There is this short video. Because he likes to eat, without any doubts and look how he can be even mean to me, his mom if he likes something. This is actually soup with little drops/soup dumplings/kapani simply something tasty 🙂

And you know what, my simple advice in the end: If you want your baby to learn how to cook. Simply let him participate and make your kitchen a bit dirty and his hands too. He will love it. He will learn the recipes simply by doing. Isn’t it great?

      tak to jsem rada, ze moje post splnila ucel. chtela jsem, aby se lide zasmali, protoze se mi ted stavaji hodne kontroverzni veci. bud jsou strasne funny nebo zase takove sutne. Zivot je proste jak houpacka, jednou jsi dole a jednou nahore.
      Mej se moc krasne Jani. Verim ze ti je v Korei dobre a ze se Vam s drahym dari dobre. Jak budes mit cas, tak dej vedet. At se take dozvime jak se zije na druhem konci sveta.
