While children are cooking healthy foods, they are informally seeing science in action. When they shake salad dressing, whip eggs, and stir ingredients together, they observe changes in state. Add some heat with cooking, such as baking bread or hard boiling eggs, and there’s even more to see.
There are also lots of experiments that children can do with food. Experiments that use healthy foods can be challenging to find. Here are some to try:
For more ideas on child friendly experiments you can do using food, borrow Kitchen Science Lab for Kids from the Decoda Library.
For older children, Science Buddies – Cooking & Food Science Fair Project Ideas can be a good place to browse.
