The importance of practical classes at school, such as cooking and growing food, is widely debated. From my perspective, these classes benefit children in term of preparing nourishing food and nurturing gratitude to farmers.
Home-cooking skills are vital in preparing nourishing food for oneself. If individuals do not have sufficient cooking abilities, they have no choice but to count on restaurants or takeaway outlets, which largely serves various unhealthy ingredients and preservatives. Given the fact that health is crucial for everyone, it makes sense that all children learn to cook at school. This is particularly beneficial for those whose parents have little knowledge on nutrition or are too busy to spare time for their offspring. Indeed, after cooking classes, some children start cooking dinner for their family when their parents cannot come home until late at night. With proper feedback, they feel pleasure in their new roles, and will eventually improve the health of all family members.
Turning to the benefits of growing food in school classes; growing food can become a formative experience to be grateful to farmers. During the classes, they will come to realize how much attention they need to pay to their crops and how long they need to wait for their harvest. Eventually, they comprehend the effort of farmers who stock supermarket shelves with fruit and vegetables, and learn the economics of this industry. Indeed, fostering an appreciation of food is vital for the current society where a significant amount of food is wasted in vain. Some experts point out that this phenomenon is prominent amount young people who have little or no respect for farming.
To summarize, I believe children should learn cooking and growing food at school to become mature adults who can maintain their own health and appreciate the effort that goes into producing fresh food.
