Purpose: This badge teaches Juniors how to serve a meal to their family and friends.
Step 1: Tour a kitchen. This kitchen can be your own, at school or at a local restaurant or catering company. Use the tour to learn about the different cooking tools and how they are used, along with general kitchen safety. You can make a game out of this activity by having a scavenger hunt to find a tablespoon, baking sheet, whisk, oven mitt, casserole dish, cheese grater and more.
Step up your skills with a pro. Remember, girls gain confidence and leadership skills through girl-led activities. Whenever possible, let the girls take charge when completing activities. Adult help is necessary for guidance, support and safety.
Step 2: Create an egg dish. Ask friends and family members how they like their eggs. As a troop, make both scrambled and fried eggs. Try adding different spices, veggies and cheese. Take one step further by making a weekend breakfast for your family, with adult help. Whip up a great breakfast.
Step 3: Now that you feel comfortable in the kitchen, take on the challenge of creating a bigger meal. Try exploring foods from other cultures! Research dishes and decide what you want to make. You can make this a field trip by visiting a local grocery store to buy the supplies. Follow the recipe to prepare the meal, but remember, you can tweak the recipe to fit your taste! Fix a healthy lunch or dinner.
Step 4: Make a favorite dessert healthier. Take a favorite cookie recipe and use whole-wheat flour instead of white, or swap out chocolate chips for raisins. For some cake mixes, you can use applesauce instead of oil. With help from an adult, research a healthy dessert idea you want to try. Baking is like a fun science experiment; if something doesn’t turn out right, you can make changes to the recipe until you get it exactly how you want it. Create a delicious dessert.
Step 5: It’s time to come up with your own healthy meal! Make a salad into a meal using a protein, a vegetable and a starch. For the entree, include your choice of meat, and maybe some noodles or potatoes. You can even bake your own bread and serve it on the side
