It may seem like an easy job, but there is a lot more that goes into it that I think people realize. You are working all day long on preparing meals for children. You have to be sure that you know how to cook food so that the kids do not get sick. If you make something and it is under cooked or a child gets sick from it, that falls back on you. There is a lot of pressure to get things right, which means that you should have experience when it comes to cooking. With children, there are always allergies as well, the most common being peanut allergies, but there are also dietary restrictions such as if a child is not allowed to eat meat, or certain fruits and/or vegetables because it gives them an upset stomach or makes them breakout. Whatever the case may be, it is best to have some sort of experience when applying for this job because that means that you are more likely to be able to handle what it takes to be able to complete the daily tasks. However, it is something that you can be trained to do. At our day care, the meals were not that difficult to make, which means that someone with no experience could probably come in with no experience, but with the correct and proper training could do the job well. There were a few staff members that had to fill in when Nimow was not there, and while there were some bumps, they were able to get food to every child in a somewhat timely manner and no one got sick which is a success. I just think that it is better for everyone in the long run, if the hired cook has some experience.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
