Kids Kitchen Wizards
Sooo Over Shakes
We had a great time at our Cooking Class at Let the Children Play in Mackay. The kids ranged from 4 yrs to 10 yrs and all did really well with their Ripperty Rapz creations. I think it went pretty well for a first time cooking class for KKW.
A huge thank you to the Parents who bought their children and we hope to see you at the Shopoing Activity at Coles, Canelands on 20th June at 11.00am.
I have recently heard about some quirky kids eating habits and thought I'd share them with you. Funny little beings that they are!!
Child 1: Doesn't eat meat unless it's a hotdog served cold... And, you MUST call it a cold dog because if you call it a hotdog (even if it IS served cold) this child will not eat it.
Child 2: Hates crust- not just on bread and pizza but also pancakes and hotdog rolls too! Really? Crust on a pancake??
Child 3: Has to have the milk separate from the cereal... That way it can be eaten like a dip.
Child 4: Won't eat green beans unless Mum picks out the seeds from each and every bean. This child will meticulously check each one before any goes in the mouth!
Child 5: Will only eat one bite from each item on the plate.... Then Mum has to make more.
Here is a little fun activity to do with the Kids. You will need: 1 clear Glass . 10 Raisins . Carbonated Water 1: Pour the Carbonated Water into the Glass 2: Add the Raisins 3: See what happens.... The Raisins begin rising up to the top of the glass and then sink back to the bottom. Up they go again and down they go again. Why? The tiny bubbles of Carbon Dioxide stick to the Raisins at the bottom of the glass and carry them up to the top. Once enough bubbles pop the Raisins sink to the bottom again and then begin collecting more bubbles to rise to the top.
1: Take the kids shopping for the ingredients. This will create excitement for the cooking ahead - They'll also start learning about what real food looks like.
2: Give the kids plenty of room to move.
3: A table outside will make cleaning up alot easier!!
4: Talk through the recipe and let the kids do the work.
5 It's a good opportunity to teach the kids which foods are safe to eat raw and which are not.
This book is for any one of you who have been on the Shake diets, lost the weight you wished to lose and found over time the weight ended up coming back. This is what happened to me, which made me think there had to be an easier way.
Most kids love to cook. It's hands on and gets messy but also allows our kids to tap into their creativity and gives them a real sense of achievement at the end of the recipe. Get in the kitchen with your kids and you are teaching them a valuable life skill that is being lost in our communities due to very busy lifestyles.
