Cooking classes for kids usually aren’t healthy. Kids Cook Real Food is different!

Savvy parents know that they’ll connect with their kids on a deeper level while working together in the kitchen (the best kid-parent conversations are had when people aren’t looking at each other, like in a vehicle or…cooking!). 

But even though we know passing on the art of cooking builds family memories, AND kids love the feeling of doing authentic jobs, AND kids these days really need creative work to do with their hands…

…there’s even more at stake when it comes to taking a simple cooking class for your kids.

Did you know…

  • 1 in 3 American teenagers are obese or overweight.
  • Type 2 diabetes, usually NEVER seen in children, is UP 30% in the last 10 years.
  • 3.5 million kids were on ADHD meds in 2011, 1 million more than 2001.
  • Depression and anxiety are seen at younger and younger ages, and 1/3 of teens are struggling with one or the other!

Stats are going in the wrong direction for kids’ chronic diseases.

We believe food is the root cause (and solution!) of a lot of these statistics, and we want nothing more than for your kids to be on the right side of the numbers.

But we can’t wait for a chronic diagnosis before doing something about it!

Let’s get a plan to give your kids vitamins now, not painkillers later — to create preventative good habits as young as possible to lay the foundation to raise healthy, independent adults whom we’re proud to send off into the world!

Your kids will be able to lean into their God-given gifts while in college and young adulthood, not worrying about how to feed themselves — or spending time in doctor’s offices figuring out why they’re so fatigued.

The kitchen is the BEST place to build the habits your kids will need – both the nutritious eating and the responsibility and confidence we all want to nurture.

Healthy Habits Start in Childhood!

Studies show that kids who have regular chores or part-time jobs in high school are more successful in every area of life (career, marriages, happiness indicators) than those who don’t.

Bet you want to raise THOSE kids!

And it starts now.

We believe that the right habits in childhood are the foundation for independent, healthy adults.

But many parents find they need a little support.

Kids Cook Real Food is here to help you resist the helicopter parenting culture and build genuine, authentic life skills for your kids starting at age 2.

Kids are Capable of More than Most Parents Expect.
