With help from their three teenagers, Debbie and James run this Irish, multi award-winning food and travel blog. They love to inspire other parents through their own family’s journey around the exciting world of food and travel.
When travelling, encourage your family to try local dishes. Immersing yourself in the local culture is the key to understanding and appreciating a country or city and a key part of this is its food.
Food literacy is understanding how our food choices impact our health and the environment. We believe that helping kids to become food literate is an essential part of their education.
Spend time together in the kitchen, learning about real food, where it comes from and how to cook it. Most importantly, don't worry about the mess and have fun.
