Here is a think you usually hear: "mother knows best". Most of the times the cook in the house is the mother. Why is this? Well maybe because mother giver more attention to family so they know the favorite foods of their family. This is starting to change a bit, since some mothers are already have a job. This means that fathers will have to start learning how to cook and at least the basic tasks.

But despite that fact, moms are still considered as the chefs at home, one reason why overweight and obesity problems comes in. This is because moms don't have any more time to cook at home but instead just buy ready to eat foods. The rate of obesity then depends of the time one spends cooking at home.

About 40 percent of men cook dinner at home but after the next two months, only 13 percent of all meals men prepared at home.

After several studies made, the reason why the percentage is decreasing is because most of them men don´t like to cook and they think that it is not their role in their family to cook. This is completely wrong. The modern men/husband/father should know how to cook and do at least the basic tasks at home. Why does have the women/wife/mom to do anything?

In order to try to increase this percentage, many movements were created. To try to persuade them to cook, food magazines, cooking shows, and websites were made with that purpose.

But despite all of these, lots of men still remain not interested in cooking. Women however, can help this. Women should try to involve men in this activity. Sharing recipe collections might be good and encourage men to cook.

Perhaps the only way to convince a father to cook is to bring the whole family into the kitchen. If everyone cooperate and help each other when preparing the meals, the father will see this as a bonding experience and might do it more times and even might start liking cooking.

Maybe one day men will see that women can´t do everything forever. They NEED help, and you should be there for her.
