From London to Mississippi, here’s a selection of some of the initiatives taking place around the world to help make food education a priority in education.
Get kids cooking
Everyone is ditching the dinner table to take their meals al fresco, this summer, but what about getting your hands into outdoor cooking as well?
Alongside meats, fish and salads, chilled soups are a great addition to the outdoor dining table. Here’s one jazzed up with all sorts of lovely add-ins.
A healthy attitude to food is more likely to develop in children if you’re willing to invest time in teaching them when they’re young and impressionable.
I once claimed this recipe was mine, naming it “Yummy cake”. Grandma didn’t have the heart to tell me it was well-known and called Millionaire’s shortbread.
My version of this dish replaces bacon fat and sugar with ricotta and just a touch of honey for an incredibly moist and flavorful cornbread to indulge in.
This is a plum cake known as a “Placek z Sliwkami”. It is the very first cake I learned to make with my mother, and my children love helping me make it now.
This banana cake was a favourite growing up, and was an easy recipe for a child to master, being an all-in-one method and needing little preparation.
My grandma would often make this lovely leftover chicken soup for supper using the carcass from our Sunday dinner, and it was always fantastic.
Many people feel they don’t have time to cook from scratch, let alone with their kids, but these are fundamental goals of this year’s Food Revolution Day.
