It’s all about family time!
Sarah Michelle Gellar hasn’t really done a whole lot in the acting world lately. Over the past five years, she’s had two short-lived shows in Ringer and The Crazy Ones, and she recently performed a voice for the Star Wars Rebels cartoon.
But that doesn’t mean she’s not finding success elsewhere!
The Buffy star has started up a cooking website geared towards kids and family time called Foodstirs!
With a lull in acting, Sarah focused a lot of her time on hubby Freddie Prinze Jr. and their two kids. And that got her thinking. She explained:
“I was at a place in my life where I wanted to do something different and every time I would post something I made for my kids or from a project, I would just notice this interest in this other side of my life.”
The 38-year-old went on to talk about her hesitation of building the company from the ground up:
“It’s kind of crazy because it’s nothing I’ve ever done in my life. I think we get complacent in life when we know we’re good at something and we can do it with our eyes closed, so I was like, Can I do this? Can I learn e-commerce? Can I learn user experience? Can I learn front-end and back-end development? But how am I going to teach my kids to try stuff that’s different if I’m actually afraid to do something that’s different?”
Sarah also spoke about how the site is geared towards children saying:
“I believe that the best thing you can give your children is confidence, and confidence with food is body image, it’s language, it’s vocabulary, it’s mathematics, it’s science ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ when you think about everything that goes into [cooking], it’s incredible,”
She continued by stressing the importance of quality family time:
“I just want to encourage people to put the phones down. There was an article in the paper recently that was talking about how this new generation can’t have confrontation because everything is done this way… If you look at all the studies and you want to keep kids off drugs, you want to keep kids from being depressed, it all comes down to family time.”
We think this is a FANTASTIC idea and couldn’t support it more!
We’re all about family time and if you get delicious food out of it, then it only sweetens the pot!
