There are a number of benefits to getting kids involved in cooking.
As well as providing an ideal opportunity to bond with little ones, it also helps them to develop valuable life skills.
National Baking Week is running from October 15th to 21st and this is the perfect platform to let kids be part of the process.
The seven-day long celebration seeks to encourage everyone to get into the kitchen and test out their culinary abilities.
Alexia Robinson from Lovebritishfood.co.uk stated one of the main benefits of involving children is it lets them see "what is going into your meal and you have control over what ingredients you use".
She added kids can also learn the basics of maths by weighing and measuring out the required ingredients.
Ms Robinson believes there is "great satisfaction from eating something you have made from scratch" and so youngsters will be able to feel a sense of achievement about what they have created.
