Is Getting Kids to Eat Good Food Even Possible?


Feb. 16, 2019 Fatherly

Getting kids to eat? Hard, but possible. Getting kids to eat good food? Well, that’s the dream. On this week’s episode of The Fatherly Podcast, host Joshua David Stein, a veteran food writer himself, talks to two of the world’s most famous chefs about how they feed their families. Jamie Oliver, best known as the Naked Chef, gets into the weeds (and grains) on how to make simple meals. He’s got a process (and a new book), a growing brood, a new book, and plenty of very, very frank advice. The guy isn’t Gordon Ramsay, but he’s also not self-censoring.

As for Daniel Bould, legendary restauranteur and all-around nice dude, he’s got some culinary tricks up his immaculate white sleeves. He talks about welcoming his kids into the kitchen and feeding them their ludicrously sophisticated favorite meals. His big thing, don’t assume that kids aren’t going to like stuff just because it isn’t typical kids food. You never know.

What’s the big takeaway here? Feeding kids is perhaps the most concrete job parents’ have and likely the most important. Still, it’s hard. So you better go in with a strategy.

Listen to the Podcast.
