Beatrice, 5, cutting vegetables for ragu di carne with the Polliwog knife.
We've taught our kids how to slice safely (fingers tucked under - imagine a bear claw!), but have still been working mostly with plastic cutlery, or letting adults do the real chopping. Then last week, Rachael Ray's Yum-o foundation donated 32 kid-friendly Polliwog knife sets ($640 value)! This means more (and safer) hands-on cutting for all the students. Needless to say, we are super happy with this generous donation. Big thanks!
