PLAYIN’ WITH FOOD: Lite-weight food sites for the kid in all of us.
Marty Martindale

Here at Food Site of the Day, we look at the fun side of food along with the more serious side, sometimes food history or art. One can sip a glass of nice wine and get into a deep discussion about its “legs,” is it “weedy,” or is it really “honest?” Or, one can sit back and really concentrate on how darned delicious the stuff is.

Likewise, it’s very possible any kid you know will eat better all his or her life if an adult, from time to time, takes them aside and performs some “chemistry fun” in the kitchen for their delight. It’s easy to slip in some basics for their later survival, as well.

We have handpicked 49 “Playin’ with Foods” sites for you to look at and plan a kitchen session with a kid you know. They cover a wide bunch of topics:

Whoopie Pies

A grocery game

Kids teaching kids on cooking videos

Dog food recipes

Edible schoolyard

Party planning

“Aha! food jokes

Jell-O Jiggley Eggs

Funny Tummy games

Laughing with the Laughing Cow

Wacky uses for foods

About Marty Martindale

Foodsite Magazine and Marty aim to help the cooking-challenged avoid dependence on others due to lack of cooking knowhow. We concentrate on quick breakfasts, portable lunches and “good-4-u” night meals. With readily available web translation, the magazine explains separate foods, a little of their history, their nutrition, suggested “go-withs,” serving ideas and links to foodsites with recipes.
