Schools are almost out, if your babies are doing the American or British education system they have been home for about 3 weeks now. Growing up I loved school holidays they were synonymous with eating chips (Chipo, french fries) at least twice a week.

I think this is where I got my love for chips. I can eat them all day everyday. When we were young chips would be cooked from a sufuria. This meant that they got ready in batches. We would be fed from the youngest to the eldest. I’m the eldest so this plan was not very favorable to me. Kiboi, my brother, would get his fries before me and i would sit there looking at him like a homeless hungry child na macho ya huruma (eyes full of pity) hoping he’d give me, he never did without prompting. I would then ask him to give me some fries. He would count for me, yes COUNT. give me say 7 fries, that I was expected to pay back when I got mine. Hahahahha such beautiful memories I tell you. What memories do you have with your siblings surrounding food?

We did not stop doing this even when we got older. Even my younger brothers got into that tradition. We loved potatoes. One thing we all did not like was sweet potatoes. Boiled then forced down our throats during breakfast. We all hated it in equal measure. I wish mum had tried to make some fries from it. Such a crafty way to make kids eat sweet potatoes. You can even make them much healthier by baking them like I did here.

Your kids will love this I tell you. The sweetness of the sweet potato will win them over. Which other ways do you use to make your kids eat healthy food?

I do not think there is anything that makes vegetables as tasty as roasting them. Veggies can sometimes be quite bland  but a great way of making their flavour pop out is roasting them or grilling them. Continue reading
