The Kids Are All Right is the mental health show for kids on RTÉjr Radio!

In the latest show we chat with Irish TV presenter, food writer and cook Donal Skehan as part of our Mind Your Head! segment where we talk with people about what they do to mind their head….you know, mind their mental health!

Listen to the show up top and subscribe to the podcast here!

He chats about all the different television cooking shows he has worked on around the world and all the brilliant kid cooks he met who came up with some incredible, crazy food combinations!...but NOT Buster's Ice-Cream pasta invention!

He tells Buster and Buddy about some the crazy foods he has tried during his food travels around the world; and while kids don't need to go as far as he has, he talks about how it IS really important to eat a wide variety of food to ensure we have a balanced diet….AND so that eating food is FUN!

Donal sets a Vegetable Challenge for the kids listening to try vegetables in lots of different ways….so if you don’t like broccoli boiled, then try it baked, or fried or sauteed…because vegetables taste completely different when we cook them in different ways!

Buster and Buddy hear that even celebrities need to mind their heads, as Donal talks about how his mental health has been challenged over the last few years and that now he is very aware how important it is to be aware of how you feel in your head and that if your worries are getting big, that it is so important to talk to someone and to find those things that bring you to your happy place!

And remember, try to; Stay Healthy, Stay Happy and Stay Well!
