									                    Kids cooking class 장점
•   첫째, 요리는 오감 및 두뇌계발을 유도합니다.
    요리는 재료들을 직접 만지고 다루어보면서 아이들 발달에 기초가 되는 오감을 발달 시킬 수 있고, 어린이에게 음식에 대
    한 개념과 요리하는 과정을 통해서 일어나는 과학적 경험들을 통합해주는 의미 있는 활동입니다.
•
    어린이가 학습해야 할 많은 과학적 개념들, 즉 관찰, 비교, 측정, 실험, 예측, 추론, 시공간 개념, 분류 등은 요리하는 과정
    속에서 모두 겪게 됩니다. 예를 들면 에그샐러드를 만들기 위해 요리를 한다면 계란 삶는 시간의 측정, 물의 온도에 따른
    변화, 열이 전해지는 물체의 변화, 계란을 삶기 전과 후의 변화 예측, 열이 전해지는 냄비의 변화, 뜨거운 것을 느끼는 감
    각적 자극 등을 자연스레 요리 과정 속에서 경험하게 됩니다. 또 다양한 음식물을 접하면서 크기, 색깔 , 모양의 개념도
    획득할 수 있습니다. 그리고 요리법에 따라서 재료들을 준비하면서 개수를 세고, 더하고, 측정을 하고, 1:1 대응도 하는
    등 수학적 개념 형성에도 큰 도움을 줍니다.

    둘째, 요리는 언어발달에 도움을 줍니다.
    모든 실제의 음식물과 실제의 도구들로 이름을 인지하기 때문에 인식능력이 월등하다고 볼 수 있습니다. 그리고 음식의
    이름, 재료의 이름, 요리에 쓰이는 도구들의 이름 뿐만 아니라 물건마다 세는 단위가 다르다는 것도 알게 됩니다. 또 시간
    에 대한 표현, 비교하고 대조하는 표현, 조리 법에 대한 표현(의성어,의태어), 요리 순서 표를 읽는 것까지 가능하게 합니
    다.

    셋째, 요리는 정서적 안정감과 자신감, 독립심, 성취감 을 갖게 합니다.
    음식을 만드는 과정 속에서, 재료들에 대한 자유로운 탐색을 통해, 그리고 엄마와 함께 요리를 하면서 어린이는 정서적
    안정감을 느끼게 됩니다. 그리고 자신이 ‘요리’를 혼자서 했다는 것, 자신이 할 수 있는 요리가 생겼다는 것, 또 완성 요리
    를 보면서 스스로 만족해 하며 뭔가 해냈다는 성취감을 맛보게 됩니다.

    넷째, 식탁예절 및 편식이 고쳐집니다.
•   요리하기 전, 식사하기 전에는 반드시 손을 씻어야 한다는 점, 어른이 먼저 식사를 해야 된다는 점, 먹으면서 소리를 내지
    않아야 한다는 점, 바른 자세를 갖추어야 한다는 점, 숟가락, 젓가락을 적절하게 사용해야 한다는 점 등을 배울 수 있습니
    다. 그리고 음식물에 들어있는 영양분이 우리 몸에서 어떤 역할을 하는지도 알게 됩니다. 그리고 어린이들은 스스로 요리
    를 한 것에 대한 애착이 생겨서 안 먹던 음식도 자기가 만들게 되면 먹게 되는 경우가 흔히 있습니다.

    다섯째, 요리를 통해 사회적 개념이 발달하고 , 사회 정서적 발달에도 도움을 줍니다.
    우리나라 음식과 다른 나라의 음식을 만들어보면서 각 나라의 문화를 경험해보는 기회가 되면서 아울러 직업의 세계도
    배울 수 있습니다. 그리고 요리활동을 기획하고 진행하면서 사회 정서적 발달에도 영향을 미치게 됩니다. 또 차례를 기다

    리며 완성된 요리를 나누는 것, 즐겁게 먹는 방법, 다른 사람을 배려해주는 방법 등도 알게 됩니다.
       Cooking with children is fun!
• Cooking appeals to all of the senses. It provides opportunities
  for tasting, smelling, touching, seeing, and hearing.
• Children can be involved in all aspects of cooking; gathering the
  ingredients, "reading" the recipe, measuring, cutting, stirring,
  serving, and eating.
• Cooking is very sociable and a good opportunity for children to
  learn how to work with others as well
• as increasing their self-confidence by being actively involved in
  food preparation.
• Cooking helps children learn about many different things. Keep
  these ideas in mind as you cook with children.
  Cooking is Science. Cooking is Math

•COOKING IS SCIENCE
•Show how different ingredients are combined to make
something new.
• Talk about how our bodies use food.
• Plant a vegetable garden.
• Mention health facts, such as "milk makes bones grow
strong," as you work.
•COOKING IS MATH
• Decide on amounts of ingredients and measure, weigh,
count, sort, and estimate.
• Keep time with a clock or timer.
• Identify shapes of foods.
• Divide one food, such as an apple, into equal parts.
   Cooking is Social Study.   Cooking is Reading.

COOKING IS SOCIAL STUDIES
• Learn about different countries and cultures from the foods
they eat.
• Ask families to send in favorite foods or recipes from home.
• Learn to share meals or snacks with others.
• Visit a farm or farmers' market to understand how foods are
grown.
COOKING IS READING
• Use new words, especially action words, of cooking.
• Read recipes and books with pictures about cooking.
• Describe each step of the food preparation.
• Ask children to recall and recite the recipe steps.
             MOST IMPORTANT GOAL OF COOKING WITH YOUR CHILD IS TO
                         ENJOY EACH OTHER'S COMPANY!
             FEEL PROUD OF WHAT YOU AND YOUR CHILD CAN ACCOMPLISH
                             BY WORKING TOGETHER!

Plan ways the children in your care can help you. Be sure to consider the age of the child.

Two-year-olds are learning to use the large muscles in their arms. They will enjoy activities such as:
•scrubbing vegetables and fruits
•wiping tables
•dipping vegetables and fruits
•tearing lettuce and salad greens
•breaking bread for stuffing
•snapping fresh beans

Three-year-olds are learning to use their hands.
Try activities such as:
•pouring liquids into a batter
•mixing muffin batter
•shaking a milk drink
•spreading peanut butter on firm bread (This may be messy!)
•kneading bread dough

Four- and five-year-olds are learning to control smaller muscles in their fingers. Offer them
experiences such as:
•rolling bananas in cereal for a snack
•juicing oranges, lemons, and limes
•mashing soft fruits and vegetables
•measuring dry and liquid ingredients
•grinding cooked meat for a meat spread
•beating eggs with an eggbeater
IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER
1.Good cooks of all ages always wash their hands before cooking.
2.Tell children to wait until the dish is done before sampling it. This
will help prevent illness.
3.Expect spills and messes.
4.Children have short attention spans. Give them quick, simple jobs,
and give instructions one at a time.
5.Children get excited and forget. Repeat directions as often as
needed.
6.Young cooks need constant supervision.
Give children jobs to help with cleanup.
                   Tips for Cooking up Kid's Kitchen Safety
Setting Ground Rules Before entering the kitchen, ask your child to identify all the dangers in
a kitchen. What is sharp? What is hot? Does your child know that getting an electrical
appliance wet can be extremely dangerous? Once you feel that all of the dangers have been
clearly defined set the rules. The child should know that until given explicit permission he
should never begin a project in the kitchen without your approval. When he is involved in a
project he must always keep his mind on what he is doing.
Introduction to kitchen equipment There is no set age that a child is ready to do anything.
Children progress at different rates for different things. The best bet in the kitchen is to start
off with projects that are easy to make and do not require the oven, stove, knives or electrical
appliances. Introduce bigger jobs one at a time. After your child is comfortable in the kitchen
you could include the electric mixer. When this is mastered add something else For younger
children use all plastic or stainless steel utensils. When it comes time for cutting consider an
enclosed manual chopper rather than a knife. the stove is a huge responsibility not to be
taken lightly.
The first step in allowing a "first-timer" near the stove is to be sure she is aware of any
dangers make sure that all pan handles are facing toward the stove, not into the kitchen
Never use dangerous equipment like a deep fryer.

Respect their independence but remain close by to answer any questions
                  or to watch for dangerous mistakes.
               How to teach your child while you're cooking

1. Following Directions: Teach your child what a recipe is and that one must "follow the
directions" in order for the recipe to work. Children learn that you must read directions and
follow them in a certain order to get the result you want.
2. Simple Arithmetic: Compare amounts. Are we putting in more flour or more baking powder?
What is bigger, a half cup or a whole cup? How many half cups do you need to equal a
whole cup? Develop his sequencing skills. Ask him, "What do we do first...second...last?"
3. Sensory Awareness: Use ingredients with a variety of textures, smells, and tastes. Let him
feel the difference between rice and beans. Let him taste the difference between sugar and
salt. Have him smell the differences between various spices and the sweet smell of vanilla.
4. Vocabulary Enrichment: Enhance your child's knowledge of ingredients and items found
around your kitchen. Flour, sugar and eggs may seem like everyday words to you, but they
are not basic to your three-year-old.
5. Concept Development: Improve your child's understanding of concepts: Hard vs. soft,
liquid vs. solid, hot vs. cold, raw vs. baked, in the bowl vs. out of the bowl, fast vs. slow, etc.
6. Cause and Effect Relationships: Increase your child's ability to answer questions like:
"What happens if . . . (you add juice instead of water, you use bananas instead of
strawberries)?" Children can learn how adding, leaving out or changing one ingredient can
change the entire product.
7. Cooperation: Improve your child's ability to work together with you and with other children.
This includes waiting for his turn and having fun in a joint activity.
 Success Secrets: All You Need to Succeed are the Right Measurements
 Children need to be taught the proper way to measure ingredients to get the desired
results. . Here are the basic guidelines to measuring properly.
Solid vs. Liquid
 There is a difference between solid and liquid measuring containers. The solid measuring cups are
the stackable containers that come in various sizes. The liquid container is the large measuring cup
with lined increments running up the front of the container. The only way to get an exact
measurement with either is to use the proper container

Solid Dry ingredients should be spooned in the measuring container while holding the measuring
cup over the bag or canister that you are using. Using flour as an example take the open bag and
place the cup over the bag so that any overflow will fall back into the bag. Spoon the flour into the
cup until it heaps over the top. Take a flat edge instrument like a butter knife and scrape across the
lip of the measuring cup creating a perfectly even, completely filled cup.
Measuring spoons should be filled in the same manner.
Liquid
Liquid should be poured into the cup while the cup is exactly at eye level. You can demonstrate the
importance of this by filling the container while standing above it. Once it is filled to a particular level
have your child bring it to eye level to see how much it is off.
Measuring spoons should be filled right to the top without letting any spill over.
             How to Measure                Measurement Equivalents:
The first step is to get yourself a good   •4C = 1 quart

         Step-by step Program- How to Cook with Your Child,
                                   GET READY:
1. Set up a convenient workspace for you and your child.
2. Buy or borrow a stool.
3. Choose recipes.
    start with basic recipes (3-5 steps) and work your way up to more difficult ones.
    Choose foods that he likes to eat and will be excited to say that he helped
    make. Eventually, you can choose foods that are new to him in order to
    expand his experiences. (Children are usually more likely to try foods that they
    helped cook.)


                                     GET SET:
1. If you are using a cookbook, get out the cookbook or recipe that you will be
      using.
2. Assemble the ingredients you need before calling your child.
3. Call your child and show him the recipe.
4. Wash Hands.
                            Directions for cooking activities
1.   Name each ingredient as it is being used.
2    Let your child feel and smell the item you are using.
      Ask questions like: " Which one do you think feels nicer?" " Which smell do you
     like better?“
3.    Let your child taste various ingredients.
     Ask questions like: "What do you like better?" You can talk about different taste
     groups -- sweet, sour, salty, bitter.
     If there are items that look and feel similar ,have your child taste both. Have your child
     guess which is which by tasting them.
4.   Let your child put in as many ingredients as possible.
      Ask questions like: "Are we using more salt or more pepper?“
5.   Let your child mix the ingredients.
      your child start and then you can finish the process. Take turns;
6.   Let your child help you put the food into the oven, onto the stovetop or into the
     refrigerator.
     Discuss with her if you want the food to be hot or cold. Let her touch the food
     before and after and feel the difference.
7.   Clean Up.
8.   Enjoy the fruits of your labor.

X X-rated snacks are snacks that are so rich you should only eat a little at a
time. A good chunk of cream cheese rolled in coconut with a spoonful of
honey drizzled over it is definitely X-cellent!

Y Yogurt (plain) mixed with fresh fruit, jam, or preserves is yummy and
healthful.

Z Zippy cheddar cheese melted on rye bread fingers and topped with crumbled
bacon bits is a great mate for a big glass of apple cider!
                         Banana Nut Bread
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cube butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

                                      Sponge Cake
Ingredients:
6 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 oz. melted butter
Preparation:
Heat a saucepan of water on the stove. Break 6 eggs into a large mixing bowl and add 3/4
cup sugar. Whisk mixture together over the water bath for approximately a minute until it's
warm. (Note: Whisking the eggs over the water bath keeps them from scrambling; it also
helps dissolve the sugar and makes the mix more stable when you add the butter.) Whip
the egg-and-sugar mixture with an electric mixer for 2 to 3 minutes.
Sift 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and fold into the egg-and-sugar mixture. (Note: If you beat
the flour in, the mix will collapse.) Fold in the 2 ounces of melted butter.
Spray a 10" baking pan with a nonstick spray; cut out a circle of parchment paper and use
it to line the pan.
Bake at 320 degrees for approximately 30 minutes, until cake springs back when touched.
Let cool on a cooling rack.

                                   Lesson: Blenders

Age Variations:Youngest chef's can practice measuring and pouring ingredients into the
container. The child could press the button with adult supervision after the adult has
secured the container.
Blend: To mix two or more ingredients together until smooth and uniform in texture.
To use any piece of equipment, the user should be fully aware of how it
works. Demonstrate the various parts of the blender disassembled. The child should
know that the blade inside of the blender is sharp. Show the child how to assemble the
blender. (If possible use a plastic jar blender for safety purposes)
Give a lesson on safety that the lid should never come off when the blender is on, objects
like spoons or other utensils should never be used to push things in the blender while it is
running and fingers and hands should never go into the blender.
Demonstrate each of the buttons and what each means.

                                    Frog on a lily pad
This is a great recipe to introduce the frying pan when your child is ready.
The bread helps absorb any grease "pops" that can burn.
Ingredients:
One slice of bread
One Egg
Butter
Directions:
1.Heat the frying pan on medium low. Drop in a dollop of butter. (Enough to coat the frying
pan when melted). You will know the frying pan is hot enough when the butter has fully
melted. Keep the temperature on medium low so the butter will not burn.
2.As the butter is melting break a hole in the center of the bread. Enough to form a circle
about the size of a golf ball.
3.When the butter has melted place the bread in the pan. Crack your egg and drop it into
the center of the bread that you have taken out.
4.Allow to cook until the egg begins to turn white and the bread is nicely toasted. When
one side is done flip the bread and the egg to toast the other side.
5.When both sides have been browned and the egg is cooked through (the entire clear
part of the egg should be white with nothing runny remaining) it is ready to serve.

processor, food mill and in some cases an electric mixer.
Strawberry Sherbet Sorbet
Ingredients:
1 packet unflavored gelatin
1 C. sugar
4 C. strawberries
1 C. milk
Place the strawberries in a blender, younger children can use a food mill to achieve the desired
consistency. Place cover on firmly and puree' until the strawberries are finely blended. Placing a bowl
beneath a strainer with a fine mesh, show your child how to press the berries through the screen using a
plastic spatula or spoon. Discard the seeds.
Combine the sugar and gelatin in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in berries and cook until the
sugar/gelatin dissolves.
Remove from heat and add milk.
Pour into a freezer safe container, cover and freeze. Use the largest pan that will fit in your freezer, like a
cookie sheet, so the mixture has a minimal depth. Put your empty mixing bowl into the freezer to chill.
When almost firm break into chunks. Transfer to the chilled mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat on
slow for two minutes until the chunks have broken and have begun to smooth. Beat on high for three
minutes or more until the texture becomes smooth.

Place back in the freezable container. Freeze until firm.
