Cooking with kids is fun and educational. They improve their reading skills while learning some maths, and about weighing and measuring and the whole chemistry of putting ingredients together in certain ways for a delicious treat they can enjoy with their family.

From cookies and cakes to simple meals, kids can do it all. They also learn about the produce that they are cooking with and their nutritional benefits. Let’s not forget about the best bit, the YUM factor and licking the beater, spoon and bowl! Check out the BBC's guide to cookery skills by age here.
