Your teenager might want to take much more of a leading role in cooking now – which is great, as long as you’re still on hand to supervise. If their friends are coming over, get them cooking the meal.

Build up their confidence on the things they love to cook – if desserts are their thing, ask them if they’ll cook that fantastic cake they tried when you’ve got your friends coming over.

And get them making their takeaway – try our pizza, Chinese and Indian recipes rather than spending a fortune at the chippy.
