Wrap it up B!

Ladies & Gentlemen, I am a picky eater. I Can’t help it, certain junk grosses me out. No one’s shoving anything down my throat. Why is it justifiable to be mad at the kiddies for doing what this here miscreant does?

There is alternatives to what myself and the children do not like, but as long as we eat something what’s the problem? Step 3 on the Food Network is my lifeblood, Choice is Key!! Quit trying to feed me stuff I won’t feed the garburator. You give me a catlitter cake, I’ll probably eat it. May look gross but I bet it’s delicious.

I’d also like to say, if you cut my Ham & Cheese sandwhich into a star shape I’d love that! It’s so easy to please if you do the right thing. Surprisingly, when I was young the only thing that detracted me from Mom’s sandwhiches was the freakin’ butter. I’d tell that lady time and time again, NO BUTTER!
She never listened.

Appease the picky eater, pre-peel our oranges, they are too hard to peel by ourselves. And yes, rock the fruit kabob. Fruit kabobs are the jam, especially on the Barbeque. If a kid takes leftover FKs to school for lunch he or she will be the coolest apple in school. Imagine the tradesies that kid will be offered…..

Now let me ask you this, do you love apples? I do and I did when I was just a young girl (boy) all the way back in grade 2. I remember my Oma (That’s Grandma) cutting the skin off of the whole apple so I could individually chomp on the core and skin bits. It certainly was not an apple mindbender but you better believe it was all apple love. Too bad I was never allowed to play with the knife. Even now, I might hurt myself cutting a fancy apple. I guess I never had the training.

If someone would’ve helped me learn to cook when I was a sprouting seed (looking at you Mother) maybe I would have the proficiency to cut things for myself. Oh how I would have loved to be in a place that let me make fun things. A school for kids taught by people catering to the budding chefs out there. Kid Chef just sounds cool, like it could be my new favorite rapper. I’m so done with Lil Chef, Kid Chef is the bomb.

Next week watch out for those Allergies. You might know what to watch out for as per yourself but do you know about the other things that cause people harm? Stay tuned.

Kid Chefs

Growing up, one thing that I wish I had was a kids cooking class – something different then Home Ec in Junior High – where it wasn’t boring and you didn’t learn how to make pancakes or chili.  Well recently, I found out that Calgary has a kids cooking school. It is called Kulinary Kids, where it is geared for pre-schoolers and all the way up to high school students. They have many classes for each age group that deals with not only learning the basic cooking skills but also learning to cook with seasonal items or different cooking styles. For the parents, this is a win-win situation – not only are the kids learning about cooking, they are also developing life skills.

A little more closer to home and for the Youth, Lethbridge College offers a Culinary Boot Camp. Where you learn about appetizers, soups, salads, main courses and the best part of a meal – the dessert.  During this camp, the youth also learn about basic cooking skills too. Then at the end, they get to design a 3 course meal and present it to their family and friends.

However, if you are thinking that Calgary is to far away, and your kid is not ready for the culinary boot camp, then have no fear. Just check out Cooking with Kids. This website provides recipes, videos and educational resources to teach your child about food, cooking and nutrition. Also, this a great way to spend more time with your child.

One last piece of information to help out in the kitchen, is have your child dress up like a chef and pretend that you are on a cooking show preparing a meal. What kid doesn’t like dressing up and pretending to be an adult?
