Modern mums take food tips from celebrity chefs

Young mothers are more dynamic in the kitchen than their parents

Modern mums are more likely to prepare inspirational recipes for their children than the previous generation.

Many of these tips are likely to come from celebrity chefs, as four in ten use their recipes and cookbooks as sources of wisdom.

This is according to new research commissioned by Birmingham Food Fest, a ten-day celebration that will take place in October.

They are also more likely to offer a broader range of food as those aged 20 to 35 claim to regularly serve Mexican and Chinese dishes - although British cuisine is still favoured.

Marketing services director for the event Emma Gray asserted that this information dispels the myth that young people are not particularly interested in food.

"Mums of 30 years ago were unlikely to consider something as out there as stir fries and curries; it just wasn't as common place as it is today," she remarked.

There are likely to be longer lasting health benefits for the children who grow up with a broader food palette, as nutrition consultant for Greatvine.com Charlotte Stirling-Reed recently argued that a balanced diet is simply a case of eating a wide range of meals.
