Cooking Matters for Kids

Knife Safety

Cooking Matters for Kids offers a fun curriculum for teaching kids how to make healthy choices and prepare food, either by themselves or with their families and friends. During this particular class, the culinary instructor taught children two key principles of safe cooking:  hand washing and knife safety.  Our culinary instructor taught each of the children, which ranged in age from five to ten, how to safely use a knife... a skill they put into use later on in the class by cutting fruit for a fruit salad!
