Empowering for kids and parents!
I can’t believe how much the kids can do in the kitchen! Thank you for making this class and giving me the courage to teach them!
– Heather, mom of Isaiah, 9, Gabriel and Trinity, 7 year old twins, and Amelia, 3.
Raise Kids Who Will Succeed in the Real World
“Whenever I asked my oldest to help with dinner, I was met with much resistance. Now that she’s learned basic cooking skills with Kids Cook Real Food, I just asked her to set up dinner last night, and guess what? She made pasta, heated sauce, and homemade meatballs, and cut and steamed broccoli effortlessly – and I squeezed in some exercise between work and dinner!
I’d been telling my girls certain things about safety in the kitchen and setting the table for years, but after watching Mrs. Kimball’s videos, they finally bought into it. Actually, they acted like it was all new and amazing information!”
— Adria, mom of 2 from CA
Easy for Parents
“”I enjoy cooking, but not with my kids because it stressed me out. I’d probably have kept kicking them out of the kitchen until they were 15! Watching the kids cook on the Kids Cook Real Food videos gave me the courage to get my kids in the kitchen and just START cooking. With “Mrs. Kimball” as the teacher, it was easier on me. …the 4 year old is my best little “sous chef” yet – he LOVES helping me prep for dinner by cutting up fruits & veggies with a real knife – and I love having REAL help in the kitchen!”
— Amy L., mom of 5
Do you have?:
“You laid everything out so well that we had a GREAT laid-back experience at the stove with FIRE. Who would have thought?!?!”
— Angie, mom of 3
“This lesson was great and once again reminded me that my kids are much more capable than I think.”
— One of our happy members
The Power of Video Classes
“The three-step process is our secret superpower in what would otherwise be a parent takeover (especially with the chef knife!)…but the technique you’ve imparted is such a contribution to our overall teaching style and I must thank you.
“I feel like this experience has already reframed my understanding of the power of online classes, family learning and of course cooking!”
— Theresa, Brad and son, Aidan
“Awesome, awesome skill that is so helpful and gives him so much confidence in his own cooking independence! He kept listing all the things he could make now.”
Gives Kids Confidence
“My children and grandchildren said have been cooking non-stop since they gained confidence to be independent. This class was the best thing I ever gave my grandkids for Christmas!”
— Jeanie A.
Empowering for Kids
“My favorite experience is seeing how excited he is about each new class. He will choose watching a new video from Mrs. Kimball over almost any other activity. He loves being in the kitchen with me and feels very empowered with his ‘official’ lessons.”
Keeps Kids’ Interest
“My kids love videos generally, and they really, really love seeing the other kids (even if they’re just standing there). That is one of the biggest assets of this course in my opinion – it really teaches the kids by example of other kids. It’s a confidence booster for my kids knowing other kids just like them can and are doing the same tasks, and it really helps keep their interest.”
“They’ve asked me to watch again and again, so I would say that is a strong endorsement. A lot of times I overhear them using phrases from things they’ve seen when they play.”
Are you on a tight budget?
Best Decision Lately
“This cooking program has been so helpful for me and my kids! I know how to cook, plus I’m really cheap, so at first it seemed like I could do this myself. Then I decided to purchase this program and it’s been the best decision I’ve made lately! The teacher knows just how to explain certain concepts, uses better terminology for kids, and knows what order to best introduce new concepts! I love how all the recipes use real food too. I can’t even begin to tell you what this program has done for our family!”

Worth The Money
You work is ALWAYS so thorough! I know I can trust your products. I knew this new course would be worth the money just because of how well you do everything else.

Do you homeschool your kids?
Teaching Math and Science Through Cooking
We used this course in our homeschool to help teach practical applications for math and science, and even about geography and different cultures. Being able to cook has encouraged my kids to design some of their own science experiments to try different variations on a recipe.
“After finishing the Kids Cook Real Food eCourse, we worked to make sure that each of our children has 3 healthy family meals they can prepare without any assistance. They rotate through the week so that each of three children cooks one of their “specialties” per week, meaning I have only 4 nights to plan for myself!
“Gaining experience in meal planning, shopping, preparing and even hosting is a crucial home-management skill.”
— Lisa C
Parents are Learning Alongside Their Kids
“We love the cooking class! It has been one of the best things for us so far this year in our homeschool. It was such a great format and we learned so much (me too, I taught myself to cook, so there are things I never learned!).”
— Shauna Hall
Kids Are More Capable Than They Get Credit For
“I have two boys, age 4 & 6 and we homeschool/unschool. I have to tell you, they LOVED it! I mean, that’s an understatement! I was a little nervous about my 4yr old participating because he gets frustrated very easily and I was worried he’d be hesitant to even try or have a meltdown if it was harder than he expected. But he did GREAT! And he was so super proud of himself. They both were.
“I haven’t had them do much helping in the kitchen until now because – as I’m sure most people say – it’s quicker and easier for me to do it myself. I realize now, however, that they are much more capable than I was giving them credit for and my life is going to be a million times easier when they are peeling and chopping their own veggie snacks!
“I love coming across awesome classes like these for our homeschooling family and I will definitely being sharing this with our homeschool friends!”
— Rachael P., Arizona
Kids Are Taking Initiative Now
I feel like a very competent cook, but I’ve never really taken the time to slow down and break cooking down into manageable bits for my kids. This is likely because we homeschool so I feel like I’m always teaching and have fatigued a bit by the time dinner prep rolls around. Thank you for coming right into my home and teaching my little ones good habits and skills so I can just reinforce them and cook with them.
Now that they’ve got some basics down they’ve actually started taking initiative in other kitchen duties including cleanup and dishes. Who knew an online cooking class could do that?

Exactly What The Child Needed
My little guy is fascinated with the classes. The video format keeps his attention and the way that you teach (present) the lessons is perfect for him. He not only has confidence that he can do it himself (or with minimal help) but he is starting to plan menus for his daily meals. Your classes have moved him forward faster and in a way that I could not have done with him just helping me. Your explanations on the basic skills are exactly what he needs and something that I would have never thought of.
— Angela F., Ohio (Aidan, 11yo)
Your fun terms and simple way of explaining things has made it stick with her. I am so excited to share your website with other families. The self-confidence that these classes have given her is amazing.
— Jennie Banks, Certified Health coach and mom
