Online Video Cooking Curriculum

Your Homeschool Curriculum Needs Life Skills…

…And Your Life Needs Kids Who Help Out.

Welcome, Charter School staff and members!

The Kids Cook Real Food course is a video-based course with accompanying curriculum designed
by a former elementary school teacher, Katie Kimball.

This online video course will help children discover and nurture their strengths, learn how to make
recipes independently, without anyone else’s help, and know how to feed themselves healthy
food as they grow into adulthood.

Kids Cook Real Food will build independent chefs and life skills while everyone is having fun in the
kitchen together. The course includes:

  • 8 video lessons for each level (Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced)
  • Downloadable curriculum designed to prepare parents for each lesson so their kids get the most learning out of each experience
  • Flash Cards that reinforce skills and information taught in the video lessons
  • A recipe ebook full of meals and snacks that kids will learn to make
  • Shopping and supply lists that make it easy to be prepared for each lesson

Here’s a quick preview to see what a lesson is like:

You can also take a peek at the course curriculum map for more details.

Kids Cook Real Food has been used by many homeschoolers and provides curriculum to
charter schools across the nation, and offers charter school families the opportunity to purchase the course using instructional funds.

We also work with curriculum providers and other independent classrooms:

  • We’ve gifted over 80 memberships to foster families in TN and MS through a “buy one, give one” campaign with Youth Villages.
  • Families are offered our classes free of charge to foster families with Fostering Together in the state of Washington.
  • Our course is also used in many homeschool co-ops and school-to-home partnerships, an after-school program in KS, a 2nd-grade classroom in
  • California, a middle school program in North Carolina, and a preschool program in California.
  • Chefs’ classes in Idaho
  • The course is available as a curriculum option to Sonlight homeschooling members.
  • Pennsylvania Commonwealth Charter Academy offers the course as an elective to all of their students.
