Esther Yap, created Big & Lil' Chef with her firstborn in mind. It was not an easy feat being a first-time mom. It was a joyful journey but also one that is full of trials and errors.
"I vividly remembered how perplexed and lost I was after he turned 1 year old. Suddenly, we don’t quite understand our little angel anymore and did not know how to respond to his temper tantrums.
I admit that I was struggling. And that was when I realised the importance of how my toddler requires the right toys and activities to play with. And the playing should seek to promote development and strong listening skills and patience."

The Importance Of Interactive Playtime
With Your Children
According to studies, young children pick up bad habits as young as 7 months old. Temper tantrums could be one of those bad habits. While you may be baffled by how & why your angelic child suddenly throws temper tantrums at toddler age, you may reduce or even try to eradicate it by doing constructive activities together at home, building trust, patience and listening skills.
Many parents have no idea that boredom & lack of suitable activities for their little ones might ignite their great fury. Over time, temper tantrums will become a bad habit that could potentially escalate as their children grow older, unless the parents learn how to create the right environment and give the right instructions.
You will potentially see a significant change in yourself and your child as you engage in the Big & Lil' Chef baking processes. Your little ones will bring their colourful recipes to life; while you will have a systematic guide, which makes baking simple and guiding your child a smoother and sweeter process. Most importantly, trust can be forged and children who have good listening skills are more patient and less prone to temper tantrums!
“It is a good parent-child bonding activity book. The cartoons are cute and relatable and the child can learn words along the way…”

People might not take toddlers seriously. They might think that they are too young, too naive and that list, filled with incompetency goes on. The truth is, every child is filled with wonder and brilliance in their own right. Their leap of growth is so significant that they can be so versatile and fast in their learning.
I was searching for a recipe book for my son and almost all the books catered for children 5 years old and above. The books are often wordy and the recipes are long and boring for a toddler. I created the books knowing that I could make a difference. I trust our little toddlers. They are quick-thinking and they deserve to be nurtured to develop to their fullest potential.

2. Given the right amount and type of activities. They do have short attention spans.
3. Learn and practise strong listening skills and patience.
