Meet ChopChop, a New Magazine For Kid Chefs and Foodies

Koodies Now Have Their Own Magazine, ChopChop

With the growing number of kiddie foodies, or koodies, that have gotten press over the past year, it was only a matter of time before they got their own magazine. Meet ChopChop, a new quarterly food glossy and website that's full of cooking pointers, recipes, and kitchen tool introductions, for kids aged 5 to 12. The vision of the magazine's creator, cookbook author Sally Sampson, is to reverse and prevent childhood obesity; according to the website, the mag is "filled with nutritious, great-tasting, ethnically diverse, and inexpensive recipes." The debut issue has a circulation of 150,000, and is being distributed to pediatricians, grocery stores, farmers markets, schools, children's hospitals, and youth-based community organizations.

What do you think of the idea? Would you buy a subscription for someone you know?

I don't see anything wrong with this. It helps some kids become slowly introduced into cooking and also might help them with their math skills (what with fractions and what not). Plus some of the recipes might not involve the use of the oven so safety is taken in consideration.

No way. Why can't they just cook regular recipes with their parents? No need for a special magazine with dumbed down "kiddie" recipes. When I was 8, I wanted to make a birthday cake for my American Girl doll, so I grabbed the Betty Crocker cookbook and looked up the recipe for a delicious-sounding Williamsburg Orange cake and made turned out great.

Ugh, please don't help "koodie" happen.
