Ready, Steady, Cook (from home)!
With Schools now closed and many parents working from home, it can be challenging to keep kids entertained and happy. Getting them more involved in the kitchen is the perfect recipe to get them active whilst also preparing them with important life skills!
Cooking is important for Cognitive, Emotional and Physical Development
- Confidence in decision-making & problem-solving
- Boosting imagination and creativity
- Nutritional knowledge and choices
- Physical co-ordination like chopping, mixing, squeezing
We’re here to help make this happen! ‘Virtual Kids Kitchen’ is the digital extension of ‘Kids Kitchen’, an initiative launched last year to get kids more active in the kitchen. Virtual Kids Kitchen is the same fantastic cooking and learning experience plus the added benefit of kids being able to take part from their own homes.
What can you expect?
We’ll focus on food tasting, core cooking skills and plenty of nutrition education, in the good hands of our trained Nutritionist (and mum too!) who will be there to guide step by step. Each class provides a fun interactive learning environment, building kids knowledge and confidence to make healthy food and lifestyle choices – they might even teach you a thing or two! Plus, they get to make a lovely meal for you and the family to enjoy at the end of every class.
What do you need?
It’s a super simple set up! All you need is supervised access to a smart device (laptop, phone or tablet) in your kitchen along with a few ingredients that we’ll let you know to prepare beforehand. Oh, and of course a want to have fun, prepare to get your hands a bit messy attitude!
Feedback from Parents whose children attended Kids Kitchen previously
Melissa: “It was a fantastic experience for them. It boosted their confidence in the kitchen and in turn increased their independence at home. She now cooks brekky for herself a couple of days a week and also loves to cook by herself on weekends too. They are both able to follow recipes and are much better with measurements. Well worth the time and the food they bring home for us to try is a bit of a bonus too!”
Sue: “Looking forward to my younger children participating in future years. Loved it! Teachers are great. Supportive environment. Felt comfortable leaving her there. She enjoyed it and learned a lot. Fantastic value for money. Thank you so much!”
Lots of content will be available on the website, packed with recipe ideas and healthy tips for the whole family to enjoy.
There are limited spaces available so don’t miss out!
