I just love going out into the community and meeting the viewers of Hey Kids, Let’s Cook! This past Friday I had the opportunity to do just that at the Lucky Supermarket in San Bruno, California. Kaila tagged along and we demonstrated fruit salsa and pizza salad, then handed out samples to everyone who walked by. I was so excited to meet viewers Martha, Brandi, and Sally. Sally has two daughters ages 9 and 10. Sally says her kids “really enjoy the show and listen. They identify with the cast members, and watch to see which one is doing which job: the measuring, the cutting, and the stirring.” Sally added that “the show has great life skills.” Brandi has a 15 year old son who loves to cook, and they often cook complicated recipes together. Brandi shared that they “often take the Hey Kids, Let’s Cook! recipes, and add more things to them.” Brandi also added, “I think if you get more kids more involved and cooking in the kitchen, then they eat better”. Martha mentioned that she “just loves the children on the show. They seem like they’re really enjoying it, and it doesn’t seem like a chore, because they seem to be enthused and learning.” (I agree with Martha – the kids are really cute!) I’ll be out again with the kids this Sunday, October 17th at The Big Fresno Fair, 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the Pavilion Stage. Hope to see you there!
