What Tweens Eat
Almost as many American families cook food from scratch daily as those who never cook homemade meals, a new audit of international eating habits found. Families in the UK show similar results, while those in France are less likely to get take-out or cook ready-made meals. The survey of 43,000 youngsters revealed that a burger and fries is the most popular dish for American kids, closely followed by spaghetti, and homemade pizza.
The international audit, commissioned by GirlsgoGames, who recently launched the popular Sara’s Cooking Class app for kids, assessed the food habits and preferences of youngsters and their families. Their study reveals that 43% of participants eat in front of the TV, compared with 53% at the table.
The questionnaire showed that the US lags behind France when it comes to enjoying homemade meals at the table as a family. 73% of young French cooks get busy in the kitchen at least once a week with their family, compared to 59% of American respondents.
As part of a campaign to get kids excited about food and eating well, GirlsgoGames conducted the survey to gain insight into eating habits of children. The campaign included a fun and educational cooking roadshow that toured schools. Sara (of virtual cooking app “Sara’s Cooking Class”) put on fun cooking workshops to encourage and excite kids about cooking for themselves.
Sara’s Cooking Class creates an environment in which parents and children can bond through a positive learning experience. It also teaches the importance of keeping the cooking tradition alive and making your own meals from fresh ingredients from all over the world.
