Hey Kid Foodie!
Kid Foodie loves food. I mean he loves food. We’re not talking the kind of food you associate with most kids’ appetites. He loves good, fresh, whole, healthy food. A diagnosis in 2010 of Celiac Disease threatened to sideline his hobby. But quite the opposite…
Kid Foodie loves food. I mean he loves food. We’re not talking the kind of food you associate with most kids’ appetites. He loves good, fresh, whole, healthy food. A diagnosis in 2010 of Celiac Disease threatened to sideline his hobby. But quite the opposite happened. By overhauling the family’s diet, Kid Foodie and his mom discovered that their food world opened wide. They try out new gluten free recipes weekly — sometimes daily!
For years, Kid Foodie has been checking out cookbooks from the library. Almost without fail, it remains a weekly event. Some books he checks out over and over. And over. Sometimes they try out recipes and sometimes he looks at all the pictures, reads the ingredients and basks in the glow of the potential meals the book holds.
Foodgawker.com was the first website that Kid Foodie logged into under his own username. One time, on a 40 minute shuttle from the airport to their Disneyland hotel he kept the bus driver entertained by reading the titles of the dishes featured on the website. Sometimes he even prefers perusing food sites over playing Angry Birds!
In addition to his food love, Kid Foodie enjoys parkour, gymnastics, rock climbing, track and field (particularly the high jump), tennis and rock climbing. Many mornings, before school, he leads his family in calisthenics! He’s very much on track to live a life of health and fitness. One of his guilty pleasures is watching Biggest Loser with his mom. He wonders if he might be a trainer when he grows up. If not, he sees himself owning a restaurant — no big surprise there.
We hope you’ll follow along with Kid Foodie’s adventures as he walks on the culinary wild side, meets local growers and enjoys the flavors and fullness of healthy eating.
