There is no "Kid Food"

Broccoli Boundary #3
There is No "Kid Food"

Children are exposed to 4,000 food-related ads every year, nearly all of them for “kids” products high in sugar, fat, and salt. Meanwhile, a study in Scotland found that in 30% of households, kids are getting separate meals from the adults. What if we just eliminate the idea that kids have their own foods?

At Food Literacy Center, we design recipes that we like to eat, and then test them out on our kids. Turns out, they like the same things we do! Tacos with broccoli and potatoes, tostadas with cabbage slaw and pickled onions, and fresh spring rolls. Set a healthy boundary that kids don’t get separate meals from the adults. Try our recipes! Your kids will probably surprise you!
