FROM ThE PublIshER Happy New Year! It’s hard for me to believe we are entering our 6th year of publishing Just 4 Families Digest. It is an absolute pleasure to bring our publication to you each month. A few days after Christmas, I received a call from a retiree. He told me our article on “how gratitude can transform your life”, actually transformed not only his holiday season, but his life. His gracious call made my day, plus gave me renewed enthusiasm toward our upcoming issues for 2013. Making a difference, no matter how big or small, is our foremost objective. This month, we focus on video games and our daily use of technology. As with all of our subjects, we present pros and cons as opinions on this topic, not as judgement or criticism. Certainly, we do not have the definitive answers to these complex topics, but hope our articles will simply provoke thoughts to help you find a balance for you and your family. I don’t know anyone who was not affected by the ENTER TO WIN !! Bubbles and Brushes

tradgey at Sandy Hook elementary. Personally, it caused me to make some unpopular changes in what I accepted inmy household. For me, I simply can’t allow violence in my home and it helped me to honor these victims in this way. Am I saying I believe violent video games caused this tradgey? Absolutely not, but the chance that they were a part of a devastating recipe of violence gave me pause. I think in that quiet, we find our own answers. Finally, please visit our participating advertisers and let them know you saw their ad in Just 4 Families Digest.

Cooking With Your Kids: Nurturing Your Child’s “Inner Chef” by Desiree Faerychild In order to get our children interested in eating nutritional food, we should allow our foundation. You may be concerned about kitchen safety, but that is only one aspect of cooking

munchkins to cook with us at an early age. Chances are, if a parent is especially culinarily inclined, some of this inspiration will be naturally passed on to the child, simply as a matter of enthusiasm, ritual and interest. But if you have a true protégé on your hands, you may find yourself wondering if you’re essentially up to the task. Fundamentally, the education of cooking begins with the study of food, this is a very broad subject, but it is also an important

which your child will need to learn about. There are plenty of things to keep him involved, to help him learn and absorb an abundance of information; all the while remaining safe and burn free. The Source: For a start, take your aspiring chef to the place where it all begins. Many farms, pumpkin patches, orchards, you-pick’s and even certain food processing factories allow visitors, or better still, guided tours. Stroll through a chocolate

manufacturing plant and watch as your child looks over the whole process with wide eyes filled with amazement. Or take him to where he can pick his own berries or fruit right off the trees. Learning about the sources of different foods is the preliminary aspect to becoming a great chef. Check out these You-Pick Farms: Adams Farm 486 HWY 54 W. in Fayetteville • Whitley Farms 917 Bob Smith Rd. in Sharpsburg • Gregg Farms 5634 Concord Rd. in Concord • Fitzgerald Fruit Farms 3355 Imlac Rd in Woodbury Or plan a trip to Of course, if you have the space, you can help little Lucy start her very own veggie garden. Choose easy and fast growing plants like beans, peas, or tomatoes. The technique of growing their own food is one of those foundational lessons which will stay with them forever. And you don’t need a ton of room, or even an outside plot. If all you have are a semi-sunny window and a yogurt container that is a start. The lesson is what matters, not the produce. recipes and kitchen tools. Visit your local children’s book store or local library and search for interesting, picture-filled cookbooks to inspire both yourself and your child. Kitchen Rules & Safety: Books also make great sources for information regarding food,

Communication is an important component of learning one’s way around the kitchen, most particularly when we are instructing children. From an early age children can learn the rules about kitchen safety, how to respect this unique area of their home. They must be made to realize that their behavior is important when certain elements or tools, such as the stove or sharp knives, are in use. Certainly, we should alter our habits to be mindful when our children assist us. We need to remember that they are learning and should not be entrusted with tasks or responsibilities beyond their skill level. Children require constant supervision, so always err on the side of safety. Enforcing a requirement of cleanliness in the kitchen is of utmost importance and instills healthy habits for your future culinary artist. Before beginning any projects, insure all parties wash their hands. Keeping young fingers out of noses and mouths can be a tricky task, but a gentle reminder and explanation is often enough. Dressing the Part: Remember to dress your little helper, as well as yourself, appropriately in aprons or other such kitchen attire. This not only gives you both a sense of ambition and purpose, but also keeps cooking messes off of your regular clothing. In addition, this sense of

Say you found it at just4families


uniform may aid your little chef in remembering that he is “on duty.” This will go a long way towards reducing kitchen shenanigans and will keep his attention on the task at hand. Simple Entry-level Jobs: Washing up vegetables, peeling oranges, snapping the heads off green beans, etc., are all jobs suitable for young fingers. Other tasks which may be attempted with minimal assistance from you are: stirring cake batter, carefully grating carrots or peeling vegetables, measuring ingredients, kneading pizza dough, spreading nut butters and building sandwiches, mashing potatoes (if cool enough), scooping out avocados, serving portions, cake decorating, etc. If your child is either a competent reader, or becoming one, you can put him “in charge” of the

recipe. Giving children a specific responsibility makes them feel trusted and a part of the team. Giving your child choices, even simple ones, such as, which dinner vegetable to cook or what color the frosting should be, helps involve them more in the entire process and keeps the lines of communication open. And let us not leave out clean up. Tidying up after baking those chocolate chip cookies can be a wonderful way to instill a sense of completeness and ownership. Allow Jonny to sweep the floor or Lucy to dry a few stirring spoons. Let them know that the cleanup process is part and parcel of the whole activity. Grown-up Stuff: For the tasks which require “adults only,” simply explain to your little


To advertise call 678-654-4111

helper that everyone has jobs that are suitable. Without talking down to him, let him know that this is one job which you need to complete alone. Perhaps he can watch from a safe distance while you open the oven, cook the stir fry, or cut veggies with a sharp knife. Knowing that he’s still a novice, (and will only be permitted to help you as long as he adheres to the kitchen rules) may curtail any ideas he may have of trying to “help” when he’s not needed or when it is not safe for him to do so. Local Kids Cooking Classes: Kroger Chef Junior 564 Crosstown Dr in Peachtree City – May 6th and May 20th at 9am. As part of every experience, your child will receive these Kroger Chef Junior items: Apron, Chef’s Hat, Recipe Card & Box, Cooking Utensil, Patch. Each child will take home a recipe card that includes step-by-step instructions so that together, you can continue the experience at home with a made-from-scratch recipe! It’s a great way to foster a life-long love of cooking! Williams Sonoma - Baking for Mom -May 6th at 10am. Williams Sonoma can show kids how fun and easy cooking can be: Learn to make delicious recipes, from main courses to desserts and snacks, with plenty of tasting along the way. For specific times and more details:www.williams- Rewards: The best part of cooking with your child is the end product: seeing

and tasting the dishes you’ve both worked hard to create. But for your child, perhaps the most rewarding part is when she is handed the empty cake batter bowl and whisk to “clean” to her heart’s content. Regardless of what you create, bake or design, the memories you’ve cooked up together in your kitchen, whether they’re fancy or modest, are the memories which will be cherished forever. Get Cooking with Raddish Kids Family Cooking Club Membership www. So, what are you waiting for? Grab a cookbook and get inspired. Set aside an afternoon or an entire Saturday, just for you & your mini-chef. Get into the kitchen for some fun and a wonderful learning opportunity. You may even decide to sign up for some parent/child attended cooking classes for you to both enjoy. As far as learning and working together goes, it’s hard to beat cooking as a fantastic collaborative activity, which, in the very least, will create the recipe for a unique bonding experience.

Cooking on the Campfire with Foil Packet Foods

Going camping or having a backyard cookout is a good time, but it frequently means junk food. All too often, people pack chips, canned beans, and a cooler full of cold cuts and cheese in their cooler. No one has to live on beans, sandwiches, and prepackaged snack foods. The easiest way to make some real food on a campfire is with foil packets. Simply wrapping foods in heavy duty aluminum foil and throwing them on hot coals sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. The beauty of cooking in a foil packet is that you can add as much or as little of whatever you like, and it’s almost impossible to make something that isn’t delicious. It’s a sure fire way to guarantee that cooking on a campfire involves nutritious eating. Hobo Dinners Hobo dinners are a classic campfire meal. This foil packet dinner calls for ground beef, potatoes, onion, carrots, and green beans. Form the

ground beef into patties. Slice the potatoes and onions. Spray the foil lightly with cooking spray, and wrap the beef patty, potatoes, onions, and green beans. Some people like to add ketchup, tomato sauce, or cream of mushroom soup to the packet. Stick this packet into the edge of the fire for 20-30 minutes. Blueberry Orange Muffins For this tasty campfire treat, you’ll need about six oranges and a package of blueberry muffin mix that only requires the addition of water. Cut the tops off of the oranges and use a spoon to scoop out the fruit and eat it as you go, if you would like! Be careful not to puncture the skins. Mix the muffin mix with water and pour it into the orange skins leaving a little space to rise. Wrap each orange individually in foil, and poke holes in the top with a fork. Place the foil packets upright on hot coals, or near the edge of the campfire, and allow to cook for 10-

and add butter. Top with crumbled bacon and sliced or shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Close the foil, and place on hot coals at the edge of the campfire for 20-30 minutes. Split Bananas A campfire version of the banana split, split bananas are especially fun for kids. Without peeling, slice a banana lengthwise, but not all the way through. Push the banana open to allow for the addition of toppings. Here’s where you and the kids can get creative. Anything can be added to a split banana. Try graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips, marshmallows, candy-coated chocolate pieces, peanut butter, berries, or caramel. You could even try all of these things at once! Add whatever toppings you want, wrap the banana in foil, and heat it at the edge of the campfire for 5 minutes. Cooking food in foil packets around the campfire should be easy, and it should taste great. Get creative and change up these recipes however you’d like, or even create your own special recipes. Almost anything can be cooked in a foil packet on the campfire. Just remember to check poultry and pork temperatures. If you aren’t sure if your foil packet meal is done, pull it out of the fire and check it. Open the foil carefully to avoid burns. Above all else, have fun and eat well.

onions, broccoli, bell peppers, jalapenos; any vegetables work. Pick your favorites and chop them up into bite sized pieces. Lightly spray the foil with cooking spray, then layer with delicious veggies. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on the vegetables, or add some butter. Season with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you might enjoy. Fold the packets closed and place them on hot coals for 20-25 minutes. Cheesy Bacon Potatoes This foil packet meal consists mainly of potatoes, bacon, butter, and cheese. Cook the bacon in a campfire skillet until crisp, then crumble it. Slice the potatoes thin. As with many campfire foil packet foods, lightly spray the foil with vegetable oil. Place the potatoes on the foil,
