Teaching Kids About Food the Fun Way

If you want something your kids could learn at an early age, what would it be? 

Most parents want their young kids to be aware of the cleanliness and neatness at home by teaching them to tidy up their beds at a young age. It’s a simple activity to train them to keep their bedroom in order.

Other parents expose their children to the basic things they do in the kitchen, from preparing ingredients to cooking and serving the dish at the table. Cleaning after every meal is also necessary to instill in them. 

Being with kids in the kitchen is also an opportunity to bond with your little ones and keep them entertained for a few hours.

Kids Food Games

Online culinary games for children are another way to get your little ones interested in food. They will learn a lot about food and cooking the fun way. 

Remember the times when you play-pretend with the cooking set yourself? The website is pretty much the same, only that everything is virtual, and kids will get to play different games at their fingertips.

Kids Food Games has 150 online games to offer. These games help children acquaint themselves with food, farming, cooking, the culinary arts, the restaurant business, and hospitality-related careers.

What I also love about the site it provides simplified culinary terms for kids, like baking, frying, marinating, etc. It also provides different recipes of foods kids love. There are meals intended for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack time. From the website, kids can learn to develop their birthday party menu. It would be fun to learn to create their lunch boxes as well.  

Besides spending fun times with online games about food, kids learn the value of food safety and the foods that boost health. 

I’ve chosen two games from the game collections that my grown children would likely play if they were still younger. 

Pizza Party

We love pizza so much, so playing this game is a no-brainer. Kids will have fun playing this one. They will be serving guests custom-made pizzas using ingredients like tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, ham, mushrooms, basil, and pepperoni. 

This game is easier to play since you automatically get a crust at the start of each order. Almost every order (except for the ham and mushroom) starts with tomato sauce, there are a few total ingredients to choose from, and you can add each one in any order. 

Kids in the second and third-grade students will enjoy this game. Students in higher grades may find it boring until they advance to higher levels and can choose between making more advanced pizzas like quattro stagioni to go with basic margherita, marinara, and pepperoni pizzas.

Pizza Party teaches kids to be mindful of the customers’ orders and provide them with the best service possible. If you upset too many customers by serving them the wrong order or it takes too long to prepare their order, you won’t be able to collect points, and you lose the game, too.

Night of the Living Veg

If you are a fan of zombie movies and games, this game is for you. 

It’s a maze attack game where you collect baby carrots while avoiding dangerous zombie vegetables. Help Rubi move around the level using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Make sure to grab the Rubi icon for an extra life, collect all baby carrots to clear the steps, and grab the peashooter icon for ammo to fight off the zombie carrots.

You will enjoy playing this game because it will give you the adrenaline rush as you try to get Rubi away from the zombie carrots.

Some games on the website are similar to a few classic games you may have played when you were younger such as the candy blocks and donuts. It feels good to be able to share them with the younger generation. 

Online games about food may not directly teach kids the rudiments of preparing meals, but it gives them a glimpse of what’s it like to have fun with various food activities.

What Is a Filter Press?

Filter presses are used for separating liquids and solids. It is used in a variety of manufacturing industries to produce goods. This article will give a brief overview of filter presses and their applications. Continue reading if your business is considering the need for one.

How is material filtered?

The key to a filter press’s operation is pressure. To separate mixtures, the unprocessed material is fed into a filter press. The filter press then applies enormous pressure and “dewaters” the solid material. Due to the wide variances of materials, filter presses need to be built specifically for the application they are used in. In other words, not every filter press is suitable for every application. Commissioning a filter press custom-built for your business might not be a cost-effective option. You may want to consider a filter press rental, depending on your business model.

Filter presses pump the mixture through the filter so that solids will be distributed evenly. A filter cloth is used to separate the solids from the liquids. The filtered fluid exits the machine, leaving the solid, or cake, in the machine. The solids build up in the filtration chamber until it is full and then removed. This can either be done manually or automatically, depending on the size of the job. A filter press is often used continuously with an automatic release valve for the solid waste in chemical plants.

What industries use filter presses?

In terms of applications, filter presses range from large, industrial-scale production to small, specialized filtration. You will find filter presses in such industries as chemical manufacturing, power plants, steel mills, food and beverage production, and many more.

Deciding on the right filter press for your business is a significant financial decision. Consult with a professional before making any decisions. There might be a filter press available that is used in your industry. Otherwise, many businesses must rely on custom-made filter presses for their manufacturing needs.

How Asphalt Construction Works

Asphalt construction involves more than just laying down the material and moving on. Several processes need to be accounted for to pave asphalt successfully. To learn more, continue reading this article and get a basic overview of the pavement process.

Asphalt paving will vary depending on the road and the type of traffic it will hold. Below are some of the common steps that are required when laying down asphalt.

  • The soil and terrain need to be evaluated before starting construction. In addition, paving contractors South Bend IN must be aware of the traffic volume that will be using the road.
  • Often the asphalt will be constructed on a thoroughfare that is currently in use. The contractors need to account for traffic control and the best way to proceed with construction. Contractors might close an entire highway or take a sectional approach to asphalt paving.
  • Contractors need to plan out the asphalt delivery system. For larger projects, construction crews need to have continuous loads of asphalt delivered from the factory, so there needs to be coordination between the plant and delivery crew.
  • A construction crew needs to clear out any large brush and other vegetation if a new road is being constructed.
  • For road repair projects, the old material needs to be removed.
  • Heavy equipment is brought in to grade the road properly. The road needs to be elevated in the center so rainwater and other condensation will drain off.
  • Once preparations are complete, the foundation needs to be installed. The design will vary depending on the ground quality and terrain.
  • The first layer of asphalt can be installed once the foundation is compacted. The number of layers depends on traffic and weather conditions for the area.

Installing asphalt is a process that requires engineering skills and knowledge of traffic and weather patterns. If your road is in poor condition, reach out to your municipality and start the repair process today.
