“[My kids] cook everything with me. They barbecue with me, they chop with me. The little one washes,” the Project Runway host told Us Weekly during an event Thursday for the charity organization, God’s Love We Deliver, a non-profit group that provides meals for people who are too sick to cook for themselves.
“Everyone has their part to do, because I think it’s important they see how food is made, how a dish is made,” said Klum. “A lot of younger people nowadays don’t know how to cook. No one taught them. So I think it’s important to teach that to them.”
The 41-year-old German model has many other lessons she’s also teaching 10 year-old Leni, eight-year-old Henry, seven-year-old Johan, and four-year-old Lou.

“My son Henry carved his name into the dining room table,” the America’s Got Talent host told Us. “I said, ‘What’s your favorite sports car?’ He said, ‘A Ferrari.’ So I said, ‘Well, imagine you had a Ferrari and I took a knife and wrote Heidi all over the hood.’ I’m like, ‘Think of all the pieces of furniture in the house as little Ferraris, OK?’ He got it.”
Klum is also teaching her children about charitable gestures, such as donating unused toys or volunteering, as she does consistently for God’s Love We Deliver.
“I’ve been helping for the last 10 years, because I think what they do is important,” Klum told Us.
Joan Rivers was another supporter of the organization.

“Joan brought love, compassion and humor to every delivery she made and every event she supported,” the organization wrote in a statement on its website. “Joan’s impact on God’s Love will be felt always by our clients, volunteers, staff and community. Rest in peace, Joan. You will forever be in our hearts.”
