THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER IS COMMENT #2, STACEY.
IN THIS POST, I’M GIVING AWAY CHEESE!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that I’ve got your attention, 😀 read on, for details!
It’s always been my view that love and connection are what makes life worth living. Meals are a vehicle for establishing that connection, because EVERYONE has to eat, and what better way to come together and connect as a family than through a meal? And what says love more than offering a meal to your family that is delicious, and prepared with love?
Well, the problem, if you’re a busy mom with any picky eaters in the house is that the table can sometimes become a battlefield, rather than a place of loving connection. Kids sometimes decide to pick THEIR battles over the broccoli!
The best way to get your kids excited about mealtime and eating food that’s good for them is to involve them in meal preparation. (Not to mention that you’re training them in life skills they’re going to need to survive!)
ChopChopKids is an innovative non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and teach kids to cook real food with their families. They believe that cooking and eating together as a family is a vital step in resolving the obesity and hunger epidemics.
ChopChop Magazine reaches more than 2 million families each year and is endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, was named publication of the year by the James Beard Foundation, and is a two-time winner of the Parent’s Choice Award.
(As a foodie, I got really excited when I read that part about the James Beard Foundation! You should, too. He was a founding father of modern American cuisine, and this foundation is VERY prestigious in the food world.)
I’m excited to partner with the 1200 farm families of Cabot Cheese (My favorite! I’m a member of their Cheese Board, after all!) to help promote ChopChop Magazine – the fun cooking magazine for families, and their free ChopChop Cooking club – their national healthy cooking campaign to invite every family to join and pledge to cook dinner together once a month for 6 months.
I received a copy of ChopChop magazine to examine, and it offers nutritious, great-tasting, ethnically diverse and inexpensive recipes, as well as interesting and little-known food facts, Q&A’s and games. Your kids (and you!) will learn essential cooking skills in each recipe.
The ChopChop Cooking Club is an online website, that gets kids cooking with over 3000 “club members” to date. It helps members to learn how to master essential recipes and cooking skills to lead a healthy lifestyle. Kids learn essential cooking skills in each recipe, such as grating, measuring, boiling, simmering, blending, and chopping. Who can join? A beginner cook! Kids ages 5-12 and their parents, or any adult who is newly learning to cook.)
