The Kids Cook Real Food eCourse is a multimedia online course designed to help adults teach kids to cook (it doesn’t have to just be parents). It includes videos, PDF downloadable lesson plans, printables, and recipe eBooks, and at the VIP level, interactive group support. Although older children could watch the videos on their own before working in the kitchen, it’s not designed to be fully self-study. An adult should always be involved once children are using knives, hot stoves and more.
The eCourse is very allergy-friendly and provides many substitutions for special diets! The beauty of this course is that the focus is on the skills, not the recipes. If someone in your family can’t or won’t eat an ingredient we use in the demonstrated recipe, it’s easy to swap it out for another recipe and still practice the same cooking skill. There is a section in every lesson plan with ideas for allergies and substitutions of many kinds.
There are simple recipes like “potato hash” and “omelets” and more complicated things like homemade tortillas and meatless chickpea wraps. Here are a few peeks, and you can see more details in the curriculum map. Click to enlarge and hit back to return.
The course is completely at your own pace, any time you’d like to login. They will send emails once a week for about 10 weeks as if the course was live and weekly, just a way to help keep you accountable and remind you that you have this awesome course at your disposal. Sometimes it’s too easy to forget about digital products, and that would be a shame!
