Cooking with kids is not just about ingredients, recipes, and cooking. It’s about harnessing imagination, empowerment, and creativity.”- Guy Fieri

Cooking is a crucial life skill that should be taught to children at a young age. Hands-on cooking activities help children develop confidence and skill. The students of the “Little Chefs Club” were shown a PPT by Ms. Rutaja Khatavkar and our budding chefs were introduced to different pulses, cereals, and spices used in cooking. They enjoyed playing the “Game of Taste” where the students tasted lime water, black coffee, tea, etc. After the short recess break, the students prepared two delicious recipes using rice flakes. They participated with a lot of interest and zeal. The students made ‘Sweet Poha’ using rice flakes, grated coconut, and jaggery. They soaked the rice flakes in water and drained out the excess water. Later, they mixed all the ingredients and rolled them into mouth- watering laddoos. The second recipe was ‘Chatpata Poha’. The final product was a yummy nutritious mix of onion, tomato, sweet corn, pomegranate, rice flakes, mint, and
tamarind chutneys. It was garnished with sev, coriander leaves, and pomegranate which was a feast to the eyes. The students served the dishes in an artistic and aesthetic way that was most appealing.
Through this activity, the students not only learned to prepare easy and healthy food but also understood the benefits of eating healthy. It also taught students that nutritious and tasty food can be prepared by using simple and easily available ingredients. It was a great experience for the Vikheites where they were “Learning by Doing”
