One in four never cook with their kids - Herald.ie | Cook Delicious | Scoop.it
More than a quarter of parents never cook with their children, and one in eight families never prepare a meal in their oven, according to a survey.
The Cooking Academy's insight:

Cooking is not only a great hobby, but it is also so important for a healthy lifestyle! This is why we think it is so important that children learn how to cook at a young age, and we run Kids Cookery Classes to help start that process. If you would like to find out more about our Kids Cookery Classes, please call 01923 778880 or email cook@thecookingacademy.co.uk
