Why teach children to cook?

Cooking with your child Opinel Set Le Petit Chef

Cooking is a very rewarding activity for children, not only in terms of their health but also for their personal growth.

As they learn to cook, children can also pick up many useful skills for their future lives, such as patience, creativity, hand-eye coordination and the ability to follow instructions.

In addition, cooking with your child is a great opportunity to spend quality time together and share unforgettable family moments.

The Petit Chef set

The Petit Chef set, made in France, has been specially designed to be easy and safe for children to handle. The knife, for example, has an educational safety ring that prevents the child's hand from slipping over the blade. The finger-guard also plays an important role in keeping the child's hand away from the blade when cutting. The peeler also has a guide-ring to position the finger so as to avoid cuts. With this set, children can learn to use real kitchen utensils safely and develop their confidence. Please note that we strongly recommend adult supervision when using this set.

Passing on values in the kitchen

Cooking can be a great opportunity to transmit values to children. As they cook together, parents can teach children the importance of healthy and balanced eating, homemade food, patience and perseverance, and responsibility. By learning to cook, children can acquire valuable skills for their future lives and develop their personalities. This is also a time for passing on knowledge and tips for the family's favourite dishes.

In short, cooking with your child is an enriching experience in all sorts of ways, for both parents and children. With Opinel's Petit Chef set, children can learn to cook in complete safety and develop their passion for cooking.
