Teaching Kids to Cook
While the kids are home, it’s a great time to teach them some cooking skills.
My friend Katie at Kids Cook Real Food is offering 2-month membership for just $19, starting with two weeks totally free (she said that the software requires them to take a credit card right away, which stinks, but you can cancel with one click of a button before 14 days).
This class uses professionally filmed videos with kids in them, all sorts of ages, to teach your kids stove top safety, the nuances of reading and following a recipe well, and even how to cook dry beans and rice (one of those skills that might seem more important right now!).

Be sure to note the part about being able to gift a membership to a family in need. They’ll be able to remain a member as long as you do!
Kids Cook Real Food’s mission is and has always been to get as many kids and families in the kitchen as possible, connecting together around healthy food and making memories.
Let’s make use of these next few weeks as an opportunity to increase our kids’ nutrition and life skills at the same time!
That’s Right! 2 weeks free and $19 for 2 months to teach your kids to cook with videos from an elementary teacher and mom of 4! Even though we already have almost “too much to do” with our kids, this is a great way to keep them involved in something you have to do — cooking food every day.

Nice article! If you remember growing up Linda, our dad was never shy about putting a frying pan on the stove and cooking a meal. True, he didn’t do the majority of cooking, but what it did for me (and hopefully our two brothers – all males) is show me that it’s okay for a guy to cook. To this day I do a fair amount of cooking so that Kathy does not think this is all on her. Plus, I get to cook things with my flair of adding whatever to the dish.
I certainly hope that through the years, as my kids were growing up and seeing their dad cooking, that they too like to do that. Jeni, for sure, is a very good cook and I hope I had a little to do with that.
More things that relate to everyday life should be passed onto kids and it should not all be on teachers. Parents are role models and what happens at home can stay with the kids for the remainder of their lives.
I do remember! I always say that Mom taught me to read a recipe, but Daddy taught me to create. I have vivid memories of him leaning over the stove looking at the spice rack deciding what to put in whatever he was creating. He didn’t follow recipes, he created.
To this day, I can still imagine how things will taste just by thinking it through. In Culinary school, I often had my lab partner (mostly, but any students who wanted to learn) stop and really taste something. “Close your eyes, how does it taste? What does this make you think of? What can you imagine this going with?” It’s a developed skill and, for me, it started with Daddy leaning over the stove and saying, “what am I going to create today.”
