Foodies grow up

I’m thrilled that our twelve-year-old grandson has a life skills class that includes cooking.

Josh has always liked to help his mom in the kitchen, and except for melting a cooking utensil in the microwave (whoops!) he’s enjoyed success.

Kids, who are spending their formative years as Junior Chefs and watching You Tube cooking demonstrations, are already tuned into making wise food choices. They know how to read labels and look for ingredients they can pronounce. They tend to be brand agnostic.

Kids also love tech. That fact alone could dramatically change the culture of grocery shopping, as today’s children begin to make more buying decisions. Food delivery by drone, anyone?
