Psychologists tells parents to get kids cooking

Food psychologist advises parents to get kids involved in cooking

Getting kids involved in preparing creative cuisine can improve their knowledge of food, according to psychologist Dr Christy Fergusson.

The expert encouraged mums and dads to involve their kids in home cooking to teach them about healthy eating and introduce them to a wider variety of ingredients.

"Get the younger ones involved in some of the meal preparation," she advised.

"It can be a good way for children to learn about the different foods, while feeling that they have had an element of involvement. If you have some pizza bases and you all put together a pizza, kids can get involved."

The BBC's Good Food website recommends a number of pizza recipes that families may be interested in trying out, including its superhealthy pizza, topped with cherry tomatoes, courgettes and capers, seasoned with parsley.

Additionally, the site offers up a simple basil enhanced margarita pizza and its creative butternut and rosemary topping.
