A proud mom moment…what would your child draw if asked ‘what’s your favourite food’?

OK, this is one of those moments when you can be a bit self-satisfied about your parenting skills (that never lasts very long!)…or, other words, delude yourself into thinking you’re doing it all right.

I asked my younger daughter (just turned 4) to draw me her favorite food tonight. This is what she did, in a painstaking way that shows true devotion (no bias here, right?).

We actually do food art quite a bit…another ‘food education’ tip I picked up in France. It’s all about ‘taming’ new foods, as Cyril Lignac (France’s equivalent of Jamie Oliver) says.

Maybe I’ll ask her to draw cauliflower next!

  1. Many thanks for your lovely comment. The thought of a teacher doing in-home cooking classes is inspiring to say the least! This is particularly important for boys (as a mother of two girls I am always delighted to see boys enjoying cooking!). Congratulations!


  2. A proud mom moment indeed. I don’t have kids of my own but am a full time teacher at an all-boys school and have a weekly cooking club for boys aged 8-11. I had a proud-mom moment last week when one of my students brought in the menu for Sunday dinner – chosen and shopped for and COOKED all by himself. It was a nice reminder of why I do what I do. I can only imagine how proud you are of those pictures 🙂 We made veggie lasagne this week and whilst I doubt many of them would draw that as their favourite food, I was pleased as punch that many of them tried it 🙂 Baby steps, right?
