Introduction to Cooking

It is so amazing for the parents of the children at Dragonfly's Early Learning to see that cooking is introduced to their children at a very young age

What I love about this is that being able to introduce cooking to children at the age of 3 years, can have an enormous impact on their eating habits for the rest of their lives.

They learn so much about vegetables, like how they grow, what colour they are, what they taste like instead of just finding them at the supermarket, on a shelf. They learn so much more

They watch their peers eat vegetables that they think that they dislike and are peer pressure encourages them to try them themselves. They see many of the vegetables grow from seed to seedling, to helping to plant the seedlings. They see that by watering their seedlings, they grow, produce flowers and finally grow vegetables. They watch their seedlings growing very carefully.... often daily. Harvest day is very exciting for them and they look at what they have produced with great pride

These little dragonflies are using their vegetables to make a stir fry.

Peeling is the first job

Peel ever so carefully

With the Educator's help and very close eye, they take an opportunity to learn how to chop their vegetables

This is a precision job

Carefull!!!

Now to the stir fry
