Here’s another example of how girls at any age can be a Why Not Girl! I found this interview by the local ABC station in Rochester, NY of an 11-year-old chef who is trying to combat childhood obesity with her online and television cooking show called “Kids Can Cook.” Chef Haile Thomas is from Tucson, Arizona and she whipping up recipes that she hopes will get other kids interested in eating a wide variety of healthy foods.
Inspired by her mother’s love of cooking and encouragement to help prepare meals when she was just five years old, Haile decided that she wanted to share her cooking adventures with other kids and help promote healthier lifestyles for everyone. She is now working with the legendary chef Alice Waters to create a healthy kids menu for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts.
