#InternationalKidsTakeOverTheKitchenDay on 13th September 2021
Despite sounding like most parents’ worst nightmare, Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day is a day which can be both fun and fulfilling – for young and old alike!
Originally pioneered by the Young Chefs Academy, this is a fun movement with its roots in a serious cause. Children and teens are encouraged to ‘take over the kitchen’ by involving them in the preparation and planning of the day’s meals (under the supervision of parents/guardians where required). From this, the budding Masterchefs will learn about nutrition and healthy eating habits – the start of a battle against the very serious health issues facing many youngsters today.
“Not only will this be a healthy learning experience for your child, the day will help foster a tremendous family spirit; and afterwards you might even have acquired a new, regular helper in the kitchen”, say the organizers of this lovely event.
Seeds are a fab ingredient in cooking and children can enjoy sprinkling them in muffins, in pancakes, in granolas and on yogurt, while they learn the wonderful health benefits of natural seeds … read more here in our blog.
We know just how important fibre is in the diet from a very early age and seeds are a ‘no brainer’ great source of the good stuff. The more kids understand, the more they will enjoy the combination of great taste, crunch, flavour and wholesome goodness.
