Can you cook ice cream? Find out on today's Chompers.

Where to Listen



>> RACHEL: Rise and shine Chompions, it's time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 

Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth.

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush! 


>> RACHEL: It’s Cooking Week, and today we’re playing True or False. I'll say something and you have to decide if it’s true…


>> RACHEL: or false.


>> RACHEL: Here’s your first one: 

You can cook ice cream at home!

So is that true or false? Can you cook ice cream at home?


>> RACHEL: Thumbs up if it’s true. Thumbs down if it’s false.

The answer is… True! 


>> RACHEL: Find out how after you switch to the other side of the top of your mouth…


-and keep moving that brush!

>> RACHEL: But how do you COOK ice cream if it’s served cold? Cooking isn’t just heating stuff up -- it’s all the slicing and dicing and mixing that goes into making food. For ice cream, you mix up ingredients like milk and sugar, and then put them in an ice cream maker, which churns the mixture into ice cream!



>> RACHEL: Here’s your next true or false: 

You need to use an oven every time you cook food. 

So is that true or false? Do you need an oven to cook food?


>> RACHEL: Find out after you switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…


-and brush all the way to the back.

The answer is ...false!


>> RACHEL: You don’t need an oven to cook. Some of the best foods are made without one. You’re cooking when you use a blender when you make a smoothie…


>> RACHEL: You can even cook just using only your hands. You can make a salad for your family by using your hands to tear up lettuce and mix it with some salad dressing.

>> KID: YUM!

>> RACHEL: But be sure to wash your hands first!


>> RACHEL: Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


>> RACHEL: -and brush your front teeth, too.

Here’s one last true or false before you go: 

You have to be twelve or older to help out in the kitchen. 


>> RACHEL: So is that true or false? Do you need to be twelve or older to help cook?

>> KID: I don’t know...

>> RACHEL: The answer is… false! 



>> RACHEL: There’s no age requirement for cooking! Just follow your grownup’s instructions to stay safe as you learn!



>> RACHEL: That's it for Chompers today, but come back tonight for more true false. Until then, 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!


>> RACHEL: Chompers is a production of Gimlet Media.
