Re:Chefs And Kids
6star hits it on the nail, when I went grocery shopping yeaterday, my cart was loaded with fresh chicken, veggies, fruit, cheese, etc., all to make scratch meals. I started looking at all the other shoppers carts, full of nothing but cans, boxes, pouches, frozen food bricks and basic junk food.
I never pay attention to all the pre made open a box crap on the shelves, but I started looking at all the convience foods that are in the market today.
Prime example, one of my neighbors is a stay at home mom, a 5 & 12 yr old. She can't cook. Mashed potatoes are the ready made type that are in the deli section...just pop in the microwave. Just about everything is ready made in the freezer.
I was over there the other day, she was actually cooking something!... browning some ground beef for sloppy joes, then I watched her add 2 cans of tomato soup and some yellow mustard. Done she proclaims!
The husband is more of a picky eater than the kids, red meat and potatoes, nothing else crosses his lips. Everthing drowned in ketchup.
Now they are raising another generation that does not know anything about food or how to cook.
