Diva Foodies Kid Chef Series highlights ~ ‘just kids’ who love to cook. Well … they may be ‘just kids” today but tomorrow … they may be the next MasterChef Junior winner like Logan Guleff or finalist Zac Kara who joined us on #FoodTVChat.
“In the childhood memories of every good cook, there’s a large kitchen, a warm stove, a simmering pot and a mom.” – Barbara Costikyan
We’re not sure about the ‘large kitchen’ but the warm stove, a simmering pot and a mom’ are certainly inspirations for Kid Chef Sage! Join me in welcoming one of the cutest and sweetest kid food bloggers I know ~ 8 year old Kid Chef Sage from Sage Loves 2 Eat!
I first met Sage (by the way isn’t that a perfect name for a foodie?!) when her mom, food blogger Shana Lee of Shana_Was_Here, brought her to food media events. It was adorable to watch Sage snapping food photos; but as exciting it’s been fun to watch her grow into a pretty savvy social media kid foodie.

Diva Foodies: Mom Shana how/when did you realize Sage loved to cook and/or bake?
Mom Shana: Sage loved to watch me cook as a toddler. I used to sit her in her highchair facing me as I cooked. She always watched so intensely. I knew that she would love to cook, as I do.
Diva Foodies: Anything else Kid Chef Sage or Mom Shana that you want to add?
Mom Shana: Cooking is a great way to spend quality time with your child.
Some of our best memories are in the kitchen.
Cooking also helps your child practice their math and creativity skills.
