Emerging foodies

Although I frequently hear complaints about kids who refuse to eat a balanced diet (ie. lack of fruit and veggies)I’m seeing an increasing number of young foodies.

Have you noticed?

Kids seem fascinated by celebrity chefs. Watching cooking competitions has become a form of family entertainment and teaching kids to cook and bake has become a cross-generational activity on weekends.

Competence in the kitchen often spills over into confidence in other areas of life. For kids who struggle to find a place to shine in a sports-driven ecosystem, kitchen creations might generate applause.
