The #CookForFamily Initiative – More Than 100 Singapore Food Bloggers To Cook For Their Families


The #CookForFamily initiative has attracted more than 100 Singapore bloggers to take part! When I first started this, some had told me 20 was enough, if I could get 80 I would very lucky, now there are over a hundred.

Interestingly, a recent research from Monash University, the National Defence Medical Centre, and the National Health Research Institute Taiwan has also found that people who eat home cooked food tend to live longer.

The study looked at the cooking habits of Taiwanese living independently aged over 65 years, and found that frequent cooking was a significant factor in their health and long life. Cooking at home helped in their mental and physical agility, these elders paid more attention to their nutrition.

The #CookForFamily Initiative
The #CookForFamily is a Singapore food bloggers initiative – there is no competition, sponsors, or hidden agenda involved. It is created with a simple objective of getting more bloggers, and hopefully their fans and followers, to start cooking and bonding with their families.

The bloggers have picked a day in July to cook a meal for their family or loved ones, and will blog, tweet and instagram about their cooking, experience and thoughts all on the same day – 6th August 2012 (Monday), with the hashtag #CookForFamily.

This is likely to be the first bloggers’ group initiative of its kind in Singapore.

The bloggers include singer Cheryl Wee (daughter of Jean Yip), actress Silver Ang, and even two bloggers from Hong Kong. Janice from Hong Kong says she is doing this because we lead such fast-paced lives and eat so much “good food” outside that we forget where our taste were developed – at home!

    Looking forward to this.
    And hey, not all parenting bloggers are like the ones you mentioned about not cooking 😛 I for one am one who cooks. Although not very often but I’ve come to enjoy cooking and also I enjoy whipping up dishes cooked with love to nourish the body and soul of my family :)

    Love this. Though most of the recipes shared here are non-vegan. For me simple vegan recipes posted on my facebook i cook for hubby starting this month. It’s definetly healthier and a blessing to eat homecook food:-)
