Chilli con carne recipe
Is your cherub the next Jamie Oliver in the making? Or does your little one want to have nothing more to do with food than eat it? Here are 25 recipes every child should be able to cook by time they're 11 years old.

A survey conducted by Samsung surveyed 2,000 British parents, asking
them to name the recipes they believed children should be able to cook
by the age of 11.

According to recent research children's kitchen skills have diminished
by a third over the past 25 years, largely because of the rise of ready
meals and convenience food. And with less and less cookery classes being
taught at school, its no wonder kids have no clue when it comes to
rustling up what we'd call the 'classics'.

Not only will teaching your child how to cook give you a break from the
kitchen, it'll also encourage them to learn about the foods they eat and
love them too cutting down on fussy eaters and more importantly food
waste.

From spaghetti Bolognese to classic scones, how many of these recipes can your
little one cook - with or without parental guidance? We bet you're in
for a surprise!
