Wouldn’t it be a Dream if Your School-Aged Kids Could Make Healthy Snacks All by Themselves?

healthy snacks videos teach nutrition and recipes

Mission: Totally Possible!

This Video Course Will Show You How to Make it Easy (even little ones can do a whole lot if you let them!)

Because they’re going to eat all their life…why not make it healthy?

“Mom, I Can Do It!”

Kids making actual snacks recipes by themselves and not just “helping” in the kitchen can be tricky: a lot of recipes have so many steps, they’re a little too fancy to take to school anyway, OR they’re so full of sugar and white flour that they ought to be desserts.

Then after all that “help”…Mom has a heart attack looking at the state of the kitchen, and the poor kid is discouraged from trying again because it was so hard! (Another future Master Chef competitor thwarted before realizing their potential!)

It doesn’t have to be this way.

One busy mom wrote:

“Thank you SO MUCH! Finally a simple, easy to understand, thorough way to learn how to use the IP! You’re awesome & solely responsible for canceling my fear and bringing the pot to life after collecting nervous dust for a year. Our tummies & clocks thank you!” (Julie, Oklahoma)

With the Kids Cook Real Food eCourse to lay out basic skills in a logical order and with kid-friendly phrases to help memory, your kids will feel both competent and confident about cooking after just one or two lessons.

How Long Will This Take?

You invest a half hour teaching them class one, and they save you 15 minutes a day forever by helping you chop veggies for dinner.

The math is in your favor, busy mama.

Review of KCRF from Leanne S., Ontario

Get Time Back Immediately!

“I’ve actually gotten a quicker payback on my time than I expected! The time my kids save me in the kitchen exceeded the time I spent on the classes right from the first week.”

— Leanne S., Ontario

Short, Easy Prep

“It took maybe 30 minutes of my own time to peruse the site, watch intro vids and print what is needed for each class. Totally worth it!”

I thought I wouldn’t use the “fun language” with my kids – that it was even a little silly. But we cooked dinner together after our lesson and I heard that “fun language” repeated often!

I’m learning too! I’m more efficient in the kitchen while helping my son (who’s already sticking his fingers in everything) learn early to love being in the kitchen too.
