The Chef’s Tips for Healthy Family Cooking Blog is online at NutritionEducationStore.com, and will feature the work of chefs, dietitians, and home economists who team up to write articles, provide shopping lists, and offer great ideas for cooking with kids.
The top article, 15 Ways to Help Kids Love Healthful Foods, features the journey that Judy took with her own son. He started as a very picky child and ended up as a teen who could cook any meal, even going on to attend Stanford University’s “Problem of Food” Summer Session with his class at Stanford’s OHS. This plan will help families end battles at the dinner table and turn dinner from a chore into a place for precious family memories. It's full of great ideas like discovering and growing herbs with children, slipping fruit platters in front of video game players, and setting a better table, sometimes even in the child’s room!
Everyone will delight in the tips and tricks included in the article, What’s Your Cooking Style?. Identifying a child’s passions and interests will help build a family into a great cooking team.
Founder and chef, Judy Doherty (PC II and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America), says, “I have always believed that every child should experience good food at every meal.” She taught her son and his friends to cook, starting when they were toddlers. She is also the author of No Battles, Better Eating, a book about how to engage kids in many fun culinary projects. She advocates joy at every family meal.
Her counterpart, family and consumer science expert, Cheryle Syracuse, MS, is currently working on a series of articles to help families make better decisions in the grocery store, based on health, budget, and other key factors.
