Kids in the kitchen is a topic I am eager to discuss any day, any where, which is why I am thrilled to be participating in Food Revolution Day coming up on May 16.
FoodRev (for short) is a global day of action initiated by Jamie Oliver to examine what we put into our mouths and what our children are eating. This year’s focus? Inspiring children all over the world to get excited about real food and teaching them to cook from scratch. I am so on board. Are you?
As a mother of three, I’m keenly aware of the importance of cooking good food from scratch and getting kids excited about food. In my own home I’m daily making cooking fun for my kids and inspiring a love of real food that will last a lifetime.
Most days, it seems like such a small impact, though. Sure my 8 year old loves to assemble spring rolls and whip up a sauce (he adorably calls Hoisin Sauce “poison sauce”) and my toddler can identify most vegetables in the market, but what about a wider influence? This blog is part of that, and even more thrilling is joining millions of others in a movement to get kids excited about whole foods.
