School Holidays at KidZania Malaysia, Introduces "KidZ vs Food 3.0"!

It's the time of the year again, every year end where kids enjoy their school holiday to prepare for the new semester next year. And being parents, sometimes we wonder what are the activities that we can do with our kids with over a month long holiday break in session?!

Cooking at home is fun but it'll be more fun if we have the space and also friends his age that he can relate and cook together with. Also with an expert and a safe environment is important for your child's safety. I don't encourage children to walk into your kitchen and start cooking without learning "how" in the first place. It can become hazardous!

As you can see my son loves cooking so much that everytime I step into the kitchen he always begs to cook instead. But I have this fear of him hurting his little fingers because my kitchen is not CHILD-SAFE! With the gas stove on and the electrical parts running etc and handling the knife and hot water etc. You really should google up more on child safety in the kitchen and that's why I feel it's important for a child to go for a proper cooking class before actually starting from home, unless you are the expert yourself and your kitchen is safe for kids to be in. Thankfully, KidZania has answered my big ask and this year from 24th November to 31st December 2018, will be introducing to Malaysia the "KidZ vs Food 3.0" activity that will be held at KidZania Kuala Lumpur!

KidZ vs Food 3.0 covers a wide holiday programme that is specially curated for kids, with daily and weekend activities of hands-on activities such as learning the ingredients, preparing food and also cooking. It cultivates your child to know how to work with and appreciate food in all its nature.

It is really inspiring to have activities such as this that truly dedicates to teaching and instilling the right skills that every child should possess. As cooking is a part of a survival skill and it's fun to explore flavours, textures and ingredients altogether. Through cooking, it will also encourage one to self-explore more into enjoying life filled with the abundance of food and ingredients all around us and at the same time instill confidence in self as they cook their own meals. This in fact, helps to nurture our children to be independent.

I've always wanted my son to take on my hobby of enjoying food from all over the world and if he desires to be a chef one day, who am I to reject his dreams. But I will surely bring him over to learn these basic skill while allow him to have fun and enjoy cooking in the process. Keeps me (as a parent) sane as well.

So take this time off and truly spend them with your loved ones because they matters most. Your work can wait another day, but your growing child can't. Don't wait until it's too late. Go plan your dates now and bond with your child!
