We think that there should be a dedicated cooking/baking class or club. In our school, we take Home & Career Skills where we do some cooking in addition to a lot of other things.

If we had a dedicated club or class, we’d be able to spend more time learning how to cook. We think this offering would help kids in the future because cooking is an important life skill and could prepare us for when we need to take care of ourselves. Another reason is because cooking and baking is one of man’s greatest invention.

Food is something that is essential to live. Cooking will help us stay healthy instead of going to restaurants or buying frozen meals. Lastly, this is a way to stay healthy in a fun way.
