Measures and Recipes
Another preliminary part of the cooking with kids will be teaching them to measure and follow a recipe.


The measures usually used in kitchen work with children are teaspoon, tablespoon, ounce measure, and cup, of which a table is developed as follows:

3 teaspoons (tsp.)    1 tablespoon (tbsp.)15 milliliters
 ounce (oz)
2 tablespoons
30 milliliters
16 tablespoons1 cup250 mililiters

In connection with this table the following points should be brought out to kids:

1. That all measurements are made level.
2. That in measuring liquids, the measure should be set on a level surface.
3. That to halve the contents of a spoon, the division should be made lengthwise.
4. That to quarter the contents of a spoon, the half should be divided crosswise.
5. That in measuring flour, it should not be shaken down to level it.
6. That in using one measure for both dry and liquid ingredients, the dry should be measured first.
7. That in measuring a cup of dry ingredients, the cup should be filled by using a spoon or scoop.

Dividing Spoon

Sometimes, with older kids, and for more complicated recipes, kitchen scale is used. We recommend digital kitchen scale with removable bowl or the scale that will easily accommodate a variety of plates, bowls, and containers on top.

"The challenging complexity of obesity:

Obesity is an enormously complex problem, with inputs from several places. Genetics is one—we know that about 60-to-70 percent of the risks of obesity are inherited. If we don't now take this as an urgent, national priority, we are all—individually and as a nation—going to pay a very serious price.

Obesity, especially in the abdominal area, makes you resistant to your own insulin. So what happens? Your pancreas tries to keep up by making more insulin to keep your blood glucose from rising too high. Ultimately, it gets exhausted, and the cells that are making the insulin are now themselves sick, because of being over stimulated. Then, diabetes ensues.
(Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH))"
