Thanks for joining Kids Cook Real Food through Niles Homeschool Partnership!

So, you have an amazon gift card? We have suggestions for how you can spend it to make your experience teaching the Kids Cook Real Food lessons the best it can be!

There are three lists:

  • one for those who need the basic tools in order to get started with the lessons
  • one for people who already have the basics and would like to get some specialized kitchen tools
  • and finally, a list of extra fun things that’ll just enrich your family’s experience with the Kids Cook Real Food eCourse

Before we get to those three lists, I’d like to make sure you know about our paperback/spiral-bound curriculum and recipe books. All of the materials you’ll need to teach the course are downloadable as PDFs within the course, but if you’re the type that prefers real paper and don’t want to print/collate all the lesson plans then the in-print books might be right for you.

The Basics

More Than Basics

Extra Fun Things

  • A cute apron:
  • Learning Tower (These are a great kitchen aid that grows with your child, and is quickly and easily adjusted for multiple children in one day. If you have a handyman around, you can also DIY one as a family heirloom.)
  • An immersion/hand blender:
  • Food processor: Cuisinart Elite 14-Cup Food Processor
  • Bread MachineThere is a HUGE range of prices here. Zojirushi is the cream of the crop and on down to your familiar kitchen brands. This is one item that is great to check for at thrift stores. People often send them off in perfect working order!
  • Spiralizer – We love making “zoodles” and more at our house! Someday I’ll have to do videos, but trust me, these are kid-friendly tools. I’ve tried a few and this is the best counter-top version and this is a super low-priced cute little thing.
  • Electric Pressure Cooker: Instant Pot 6-qt (this is the one in the Premium Content and VIP bonus videos and it does great for a family of 4-6 people. Many recipes fit doubled. Newer ones are coming out with a few more features and “Smart” technology, if you dig that kind of thing.
