Kids are clueless when it comes to food today.
Did you know Jamie Oliver spoke to a class of primary school kids and asked them to name everyday fruits and vegetables…cauliflower, beetroot, eggplant etc.
The kids did NOT know what they were!
One child named tomatoes as potatoes.
Jamie also said ‘our children will live a life 10 years younger than us because of the landscape of food we’ve built for them’.
We’ve basically blessed our kids with a shorter life due to food!
Our kids are being cheated out of a life of happiness and health because they are not being taught about real food.
This must change.
We have to start teaching our kids about food, where it comes from and how to cook it.
Because every child has the right to food education!
Cooking at home and getting YOUR kids into the kitchen is a PHENOMENAL way to give your child the food education they deserve!
Let’s change the destiny our children today – get your beautiful babies into the kitchen!
Need a recipe to begin with? Make our mango popsicles!
These mango popsicles are super simple. Made up of 3 ingredients and your child will have the best fun preparing these frozen delights!
To make your own mango popsicles simply…
Set your little one up at the kitchen bench in front of a wooden board. Together, using a small serrated knife slice the cheeks off the mangoes. Set aside.
Together score the mango cheek, turn 90 degrees and score again to make a criss-cross pattern.
Ask your little one to push the mango skin so the flesh pops out like a hedgehog. Use your serrated knife to slice the flesh from the skin and place into your blender.
Together scoop 1 cup [250ml] of greek yoghurt into a measuring cup.
Ask your child to tip the yoghurt into the blender containing the mango.
Now ask your little one to pour 1/2 cup [125 ml] of milk into a measuring cup.
Ask your little one to pour the milk into the blender too.
Pop the lid onto your blender and blitz for 1-2 minutes, or until lovely and smooth.
Together, pour the mango mixture into your popsicle moulds.
Pop the lid on and ask your child to push the wooden sticks into the popsicles. Place in the deep freeze for 2-3 hours or until set. Run the moulds under hot water to remove the popsicles easily.
