Jamie Oliver kept a close eye on his eldest son Buddy Bear as the little boy showed off his knife skills while chopping up some herbs in the kitchen.

The helpful six-year-old was in deep concentration as he handled the knife carefully. Jamie, who filmed his son at work, asked "so what're you doing Buds?" to which focused Buddy replied without taking his eyes on his task, saying: "I'm cross chopping."

"Good on him and you Jamie. My mum got me cooking as a very young boy too. Essential life skills. Should be a must at school for every child," another added.
