Soy and basil pesto
0

Recipe created by Hubert Cormier, nutritionist: “You’re enjoying time by the pool, the drinks are flowing, and you’re out of ideas for a fun snack. What to do? Serve this pesto with your own personal touch. Your guests will love the taste and presentation of this bold version of a Mediterranean classic. To raise the protein and fibre content, I like to replace the pine nuts with roasted soybean seeds. Contrary to the nuts, they have twice more protein than fat, propelling them to the stars of the snack world!”

My six-year-old son is so proud. Without any help, he built a “house” in the living room: he used chairs, a blanket, and clothes pegs. My three-year-old daughter was very excited and filled it with a bunch of furry toys, plastic plates, and pillows. They say they live on the beach where they fish. A trivial game that is a pretty good representation of what is going on in my home and in yours… Yet, when we pay more attention to this anecdote, we realize that my children were actually learning how to organize and coordinate themselves, create a scenario, and set rules and roles while letting their imagination run wild. Not that trivial, actually! “Children learn everything through games”, said Gilles Cantin, Didactic Professor at Université du Québec à Montréal. “They learn about their motor, cognitive and affective skills. The latter is the basis for the rest”, asserts Francine Ferland, occupational therapist and Professor Emeritus at the School of Medicine of Université de Montréal. “Thanks to satisfying interactions with the parents, children develop their self confidence and trust in others.” When playing games, children learn how to structure their thoughts; they develop their curiosity and become aware of the(…)

At the age of eighteen months, my daughter would watch Baby Einstein videos, an educational TV show especially tailored for the little ones. She loved it. Now my three-year-old princess surfs through her favourite applications on the iPad and really enjoys tapping on her older brother’s DS console. Is it serious, doctor? Am I a bad mother? “Of course not!” says a friend, an early childhood educator. Any exposure to electronic games, whether online computer games, video games on a console, or games on a digital tablet, is harmful if excessive, according to the experts. The Canadian Paediatric Society recommends that children aged two and under not be exposed to screens. Between the ages of two and six, children should not spend more than two hours a day in front of any type of screen. However, electronic games do offer some advantages, according to Thierry Plante, a media education expert at the Habilo Médias national centre. “Online games present the same educational advantages as other games in general”, he says. He cites, for example, language games, puzzles, and other math games with which children “learn how to solve problems and gain self-confidence”. The older the child gets, the stronger the(…)

Mikado
0

It’s really hard to reinvent oneself when the time comes to prepare a cold buffet for the holidays. Personally, I like to keep the spirit of the old while adding a few dashes of modernity. Our version of the Mikado salad, with its vivid colours and bold flavours, represents a perfect balance between tradition and originality. In addition, the freshness of the Greek yogurt will be more than welcome as a relief for stomachs feeling the burden of those numerous holiday feasts!
