Take a kids’ classic like Mac ‘n Cheese and give it a healthy twist with peas, and you’ve got a recipe that’s perfectly suited for Sticky Fingers Cooking! The best part is that you can sub out any frozen vegetable for peas and it’ll be equally delicious.
We want kids to see how easy it is to make themselves a healthier after-school snack and to get curious about vegetables by introducing them in a familiar way. We will have fun this week by teaching kids a bit of history behind this iconic American classic, singing Yankee Doodle Dandy, learning why peas are so good for us to eat, and telling plenty of bad (but good) food jokes!
Where do you think “macaroni” originally came from? We bet you’d be surprised to learn that macaroni dates back to ancient Greece, where the Greeks ate a barley-flour pasta and water dish called macaria.
Did you know? The world record for eating peas is held by Janet Harris of Sussex who, in 1984, ate 7,175 peas one by one in 60 minutes using chopsticks!
