13 September is National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day, and is an annual celebration.

Although this day might sound like a parent’s worst nightmare, it can actually be a fun and fulfilling day for both young and old.

National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day is sponsored by the Young Chefs Academy (YCA) and is a fun movement that strives to empower kids and teens to become more involved in the preparation, planning and cooking of meals. They are encouraged to take over the kitchen and use their favourite recipes to cook for their families – with adult supervision where required.

The YCA is educating budding masterchefs in nutrition and healthy eating habits, thus actively fighting the battle against the many serious health and social issues related to our youth’s eating habits. This is not only a healthy learning experience for you child, but it can also become an opportunity to foster a strong family spirit – you might even gain a new regular helper in the kitchen!

Celebrate today by allowing the kids to cook for a change. Let them join you in the search for kid-friendly recipes on the internet and get them cooking!

Use #KidsTakeOverTheKitchenDay to post on social media and share photos of the kids’ efforts in the kitchen.
