Tomorrow, May 16th, is Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day. In the past I’ve marked this day with some of my favorite fellow food bloggers by hosting what we called “virtual progressive dinner parties” in which each of us prepared a different course of a single meal. But this year the theme of the day is “Let’s Get Kids Excited About Food,” so we’ve decided to do much the same thing with a full day’s set of meals – and we’re going to let our kids do the cooking!
We’ll start with breakfast, prepared by me and my son, then move onto a healthy snack with Grace Freedman of Eat Dinner.org and her daughter. Brianne DeRosa of Red, Round or Green will offer lunch recipes cooked up by her two sons, followed by a multi-course dinner: a salad from Mia Moran of Stay Basic Magazine and her children, an entrée prepared by Sally Kuzemchak of Real Mom Nutrition with her sons, and side dishes by Caron Gremont of First Bites and Lynn Barendsen of The Family Dinner Project, each cooking with their kids.
And as a special gift to our readers, Bri has taken all of our recipes and photos and compiled them into a single Flipsnack book to make it a breeze to recreate our dishes at home. Here’s a sneak peek:
I hope you can join each of us tomorrow as we head into the kitchen with our kids! And if you’re a Twitter user, you can see what’s going on around the world on Food Revolution Day by following the hashtag FRD2104.
