If your kids are into nature, you might get Ranger Rick and if they are into sports, then SI Kids – but what about a foodie kid? Sure, there are plenty of cookbooks out there, but where is the Saveur or Bon Appetit for your little chef?
ChopChop is it.
Launched in March 2010, it’s a quarterly magazine and website for kids aged 5-12 and their families.
Founded by cookbook author Sally Sampson, it’s jam packed with healthy, fun recipes, articles, and games all about food and kids. The photos are of kids cooking and the message is about eating well and healthy:
The ChopChop Food Philosophy:
We believe in the simple values of cooking together as family and sharing healthy meals.
We don’t do calorie counts or post nutrition content, but everything in this publication is reviewed and approved by our medical and nutrition advisors.
We don’t demonize any individual foods.
We believe that consuming healthy, wholesome meals is a vital step toward a resolution of America’s obesity epidemic.
Super Chef asked Raffmeister our own young journalist for his opinion:
It’s cool. It is an easy-to-understand website, with lots of fun recipes. I liked the tuna with yogurt not mayo. There’s an interesting article on growing plants. And a lot of the pictures are of boys – not just girls making cookies. Cool.
