Amirrah Othman

Hi everyone! The school has starts and there is so many interesting activities are offered for your kids and KidZania also has something interesting too! KidZania broughts us KidZania Kuala Lumpur's 'KidZ vs Food 2.0' for this school holiday 2017!

The much-anticipated ‘KidZ vs Food’ programme returns to KidZania Kuala Lumpur (KidZania) from 25 November to 31 December with more interesting hands-on cooking activities this school holidays! In this second instalment, KidZania aims to cultivate the appreciation for cooking among kids, an essential life skill, and inspire them to cook for their parents. 

“With ‘KidZ vs Food 2.0’ we are taking it one step further - in addition to learning how to prepare simple dishes, we encourage kids to turn the tables and make a meal for their parents. This will give them a new perspective on the effort it takes to cook a meal,” said Shahrul Nizar Ahmad, Mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur. 

KidZania ‘KidZ vs Food 2.0’ kicks off with a 'pulut kuning' cake cutting ceremony with Mr Shahrul Nizar Ahmad, Mayor of KidZania Kuala Lumpur accompanied by partners.
“The idea of ‘KidZ vs Food 2.0’ is to introduce the joys of cooking to inspire kids to give the activity a try. Our Pop-up Kitchen sessions will have the kids try simple recipes to show them that cooking is actually not as hard as they think. This will give them more confidence to make a meal for their families. Instructors will also share cooking tips and ideas, such as what they can cook for the family for special occasions, or how to dress up simple dishes so they look more delicious! Also by incorporating fun into food through Food Art and Food Science sessions, kids will also be more interested and eager to show their skills and cook for their parents.”

The ‘KidZ vs Food 2.0’ programme, promoting kids to cook for parents, is supported by like-minded partners like Young Chefs Academy, SHARP, Canon, F&N, and Lifebuoy. Sharing their expert knowledge and industry know-how, the Young Chefs Academy with its professional chefs will take the lead in the Weekend Cooking Workshops, sharing both sweet and savoury recipes. Cooking class vouchers at the Young Chefs Academy will also be up for grabs for winners of ‘KidZ vs Food 2.0’ contests, giving kids the chance to learn more quick-and-healthy cooking tips at the cooking school for kids. 

“Programmes like ‘KidZ vs Food 2.0’ are a wonderful way to engage with kids,” said Celebrity Chef Brian Chen and Founder of Young Chefs Academy. “Understanding where food comes from is a key part of encouraging children to enjoy cooking. They need to understand that food’s not just from supermarkets, but how it gets there, where it grows or comes from. It adds a bit more excitement to meals for them.” 

“It’s also important to start with simple dishes and ones that kids are interested in. I’m certain they will be proud of the end products and will naturally begin to experiment with different ingredients and create flavours they enjoy.” Chef Brian added.
