Hi! This is Ally, (friends call me Ahu) the mom behind the Foodie Child blog. I live with my husband and son who we’ve affectionately nicknamed “Foodie Child” to celebrate his willingness to try new foods, eat smart and eat healthy. This blog is dedicated to him and to parents who are looking to make healthy and delicious recipes for the whole family. Our philosophy always has been to foster “a love of healthy food” in our son. All the recipes that will be showcased on this blog were tried, tested and loved my “Foodie Child”.
Growing up in the beautiful coastal town of Gallipoli Turkey, I was raised on a Mediterranean inspired diet my whole life. Foods such as fish (especially fresh sardines), locally grown fruits, vegetables, legumes and olive oil were all our staples of everyday eating. Healthy food comes naturally to me and I continue the tradition of healthy eating with my family.
My husband and I love entertaining family and friends and fortunate to be surrounded by others whose children also enjoy my recipes. And with this blog, I hope to pass on these techniques and recipes for others to share and enjoy just as much as we do!
