Cooking Together Encourages Health and Bonding

When everyone in the family comes home to shake off the day, what kinds of activities 

do you do? Having something for the entire family to do can help bring everyone 

together, and even better, bring more joy into the household, but what kinds of things 

can you do? One of the best ways for a family to come together and bod is through 

cooking together, and in the next few paragraphs you’ll learn why.  

It’s a Great Time to Talk 

If all of the children in a home are school aged and both parent work outside of the 

home, then that probably mean that they will only see each other for a few hours in a 

normal weekday. Taking time to cook together can provide an excellent period of time 

for the family to discuss what’s going at school, what the weeks goals may be and other 

things like that. 

Cooking Together Encourages Health and Bonding

You can take time to praise your children for whatever they are currently working on, 
and they will appreciate the positive compliments. As you pull out each ingredient, you 
can explain the ways that the ingredients can be cooked. Start with simple recipes and 
you’ll be surprised how much they can learn from you in just a few nights of cooking 

Kids Learn Important Skills

The only ways for your kids to sharpen their abilities is for them to be used. When kids 
help you cook, they improve their fine motor skills, and learn how to pay attention to 
what they are told to do. To give them more of an exercise, you can incorporate math 
questions into the occasion by asking them to gather ingredients in the right amounts. If 
your children are small, it'll be important to be patient with them, but you’re giving them 
a chance to grow into a more developed person. 

Shared Experiences Create Deeper Connections 

One of the main reasons that cooking is good for bonding, is because shared 
experiences make it easier for people to connect to one another. When you’re spending 
time with your family, teaching them or telling them jokes, they’re learning and feeling 
supported by you. It’s likely that those moments might be something that they talk about 
for years to come. 

Promotes Self-Awareness 

One of the biggest complaint that people have about children is their lack of awareness 
in many cases. When you instruct your child about safety in the kitchen, they'll be a lot 
less likely to continue being the kind of kid that runs through a room with their arms 
flailing about. That will make them safer and more aware of their surroundings.
