Taste Matters with Mitchell Davis

This week's episode of Taste Matters was all about the kids!

Hear from guest Cricket Azima founder of the Kids Food Festival and Big Cheese of The Creative Kitchen, who teaches children and their caregivers about food and how to cook in a fun, safe, and educational manner. Learn about some creative and fun ways to engage kids in the kitchen and get them eating more healthy foods like fruits and vegetables. Find out how different age groups react to different educational approaches, and why tricking kids into eating good food is not the answer. Cooking should be fun, and Cricket is here to remind you that!

"You learn more when you're having fun. You use all your senses while you're cooking. The reward is built in, you get to eat what you've made."

"I'm not a huge fan of the sneaky vegetable tricks. You hear about people hiding squash puree in mac n cheese. I think at the end of the day fruits and vegetables are colorful and delicious and should be exciting for kids!"

"Most children's menus don't incorporate ANY vegetables. It's tragic."
