[轉載 re-post: Secret Ingredient] HOW CAN WE REVOLUTIONIZE THE WAY OUR YOUTH LOOKS@FOOD?

Secret Ingredient 響應 為食起革命 Food Revolution Asia, 找來註冊營養師 Sally Poon 大談教授小朋友煮食的重要性。

「授人以魚不如授人以漁。」

就以香港為例,很多家長為了要讓子女爭上好學校,都給小朋友安排各式各樣的興趣班,把日程都排得密密麻麻。很多時為了省卻時間而選擇吃速食食品,然而,止舉背後,他們卻是賠上了健康- 這也是為什麼我們要進行這場革命。

—————————————————————————————————————————–

We’re really excited to be a sponsor of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day in Hong Kong on May 16th.

It has especially made us think “how are kids learning about food quality” in Hong Kong and its relation to our favorite thing… cooking! Here’s what we’ve learned.

I first reached out to our dietitian Sally Poon about local Hong Kong perception towards teaching kids to cook and what I found was very interesting.

“The situation in Hong Kong is that kids are overprotected. They are overprotected because it’s very competitive on the academic side of things,” she said.

Cooking at home

Her logic is this: kids are taught early on to learn afterschool activities like music and language will advance them to a good school. Of course these skills are useful however they stay up so late eating anything ‘instant’ so they can focus on these skills. Because of it, young kids are having so many problems with the sleeping habits, eating habits, etc.

“A documentary was done locally on kids in primary school age. And it was interesting, kids here do not know how to turn on stove or even cook instant noodles! This is pretty bad because its important to learn cooking but some parents don’t think so because it doesn’t get them into a grade-A university,” said Sally.

So how can we get kids more involved in food education and cooking? Here are some ideas I got from our dietitian as well as some moms I chatted with in ‘mom’ communities:

  1. Make it mandatory in school. “Good nutrition can make children more cognitively focused to be able to perform those music or language lessons they need to excel in school,” says our dietitian Sally.
  2. Make it playful. “I bake and cook with my kids four times a week and they love it. They know what a vanilla bean stalk looks like, they know that peanuts turn into peanut butter in the food processor, that the muffins are delicious and they helped bake them,” says mom Daisy.
  3. Make it meaningful. “I’m a pretty awful cook, but my husband is great and as kids naturally want to emulate adults, it’s easy to engage him with cooking as he wants to be ‘Just like Daddy’” says Accidental Tai Tai blogger / mom Kate.
  4. Make it easy. “It’s important to start with something that requires little skill but with great outcome e.g. blueberry muffin (just mix everything and stir). The key here is not to teach them skill but to get the interested and spark interest to pursue it,” says Pastry Chef Joanna.

What do we recommend? We recommend you do it all: make it a little playful, make it messy, make it nutritious, make it delicious. That’s why the #FoodRevolutionDay team has sponsored our super popular, super simple, super easy, super messy, absolutely yummy, Steak Quesadillas dish that launches on May 19.

Got kids? Make this dish with them and revolutionize they way they look at food and their own health.

Any other suggestions on ways to revolutionize the way our youth look at food?
