I wouldn’t say that processed food, ready meals and even takeaways aren’t relevant to modern life, it’s just that over the past 40 years there are three generations of people who have come out of school and gone through their home life without ever being shown how to cook properly.
How often do you cook at home?
How often do you allow your kids to help while cooking?
Maybe I’m a visionary or a dreamer but I strongly believe that FOOD IS LOVE. Teach your kids how to cook and love good food as my grandmother did with me. They will be more than happy to help in the kitchen and proud to prepare the meal for the whole family. Expose them to different flavors from around the globe, they are citizens of the world. Allow them to play respectfully with food, they will improve all the 5 senses. Gather all together around the table, shut off smartphones and TV, talk together, enjoy every bite of your home cooked food. I’m pretty sure all this will pay back in their future.
