How often did you make an excellent lunch which included green vegetables and your child made “that” face and screamed: ” I don’t like spinach, Mommy”? We know, many, many times. Spinach, broccoli, brussels sprouts, green beans and many other sorts of vegetables aren’t very popular among the children.
For every parent, home-cooked meals and plenty of healthy vegetables in their child’s diet are one of the most important things. But there may be negotiating and crying at the table, for some parents is a real nightmare. Well, we did some research and found out that kids who help their parents during cooking, actually like trying different foods and are less demanding about their meals.

Back in 2011 two friends, Eva Freeman and Rebecca Tully, started Kids Kitchen as an antidote to the majority of kids cooking activities available at the time – which seemed to be cake, biscuit or something sweet based. Their plan was to do a one-off set of three sessions cooking a plant-based lunch from scratch with their own children and their friends, in a local cafe. What followed was a true success, we’d say.
So, Kids Kitchen is fun, sustainable, inclusive, collaborative and open. And the best thing – as the pandemic is making our lives a bit tougher these days, why not try Kids Kitchen online sessions? It’s guaranteed fun for you and your little ones!
