We were honored to welcome our #Foodiechats Sponsor, @UncleBens to talk about and educate our community on their #BensBeginners program.

Uncle Ben’s® Brand is committed to helping families cook together because they believe cooking is an essential life skill. Ben’s Beginners™ is a movement to inspire families to cook together.

This year we have launched beginners.unclebens.com to offer fun, interactive cooking lessons and family-friendly recipes. Families who visit the website and participate in lessons  have a chance to win $15,000 for themselves and $30,000 towards a cafeteria makeover for their schools.

The first ever International Cook with Your Kids Day will be Saturday, October 15, 2016. International Cook with Your Kids Day is a movement launched by Uncle Ben’s® to encourage families to cook together and to raise awareness about the myriad benefits of parents and kids cooking together.

Participants around the globe are encouraged to post photos, videos, and/or stories of their families cooking together using #LookWhatWeMade.

To make cooking easier and fun with your littles, Uncle Bens has created five easy to follow recipes. Each of the five recipes can teach your children cooking skills such as, stirring, pouring, measuring, chopping and peeling. Along with these cooking skills, other skills are also learned such as math. Learn more here, and which recipe will you try with your family?
