Skills we've learnt: Handling raw ingredients
Touching raw meat and fish makes some adults recoil, but if a child gets used to this while they’re young, they’ll feel perfectly happy handling raw food later in life. It’s also important to get children into the habit of washing their hands frequently after touching uncooked meat and fish.
Skills we've learnt: Cooking in foil parcels
As well as being a smart way of presenting food, making foil parcels is a great way to cook with kids, as most of the recipe is prepared away from the heat and there aren’t any flames to contend with. Fish is ideal in parcels as it cooks so quickly, but you could use boneless chicken breasts in this recipe. They just need 25-30 mins in the oven.
