Is a 10 year old boy old enough to learn to use the stove to make small meals?

Yes I believe so.  Of course teach him stove safety like no loose clothing, any hair tied back.   Is the stove electric or gas?

What is your idea of a small meal? Like making mac & cheese? I would think more heat and eat stuff in the microwave and then after proper training maybe go to the stove with supervision.

Yes! My 7 year old cooks on the stove, with supervision of course, and has for a year or so. She cuts up and cooks veggies, makes pasta, bakes.....

I can't answer that without knowing the child or what you are considering small meals. My six year old son helps me cook simple things with close supervision.

I was cooking full dinners at 8 years old.... Maybe start off with 1 day a week and supervise him, make it fun and let him choose what he makes, teach food safety and stove safety
