Yup. It's possible.

You can work yourself out of the dinner cooking gig...when you teach your kids to cook for your family.

Even if you love cooking, it's nice to get a break sometimes right?!



The WHY and HOW of Cooking Lessons for Kiddos


Teaching kids how to cook is really great because it...

  • works us out of a job
  • instills a love of cooking
  • teaches important valuable life skills


Suggested Ages and Stages of Learning to Cook

  • 3-5 years: stirring ingredients, mashing potatoes, washing veggies, cutting soft things like dough with a cutter
  • 6-8 years: measuring, peeling carrots, whisking up batters, setting the table, cutting with plastic knives or protective gloves
  • 9-11 years: how to use oven and stove top, organizing meals and grocery lists, opening cans safely, cutting with real knives, sauteing, cooking pasta, baking
  • Teens: food safety and cookware safety, multi-step recipes, advanced cooking methods, the science of it

*Please note: These are just general suggestions and what we've done in our home. YOU know your kid and their skill level best, so always use your super-parent-judgement about when they are ready for each new skill :)


Delegation Strategy

  1. Adult shows kid how to complete task
  2. Adult closely watches as kid tries it on their own
  3. Adult checks in during or after kid has completed
  4. Kid does it on their own with a check at the end
  5. Kid completes the task on their own without a check


Applying P-I-E to Cooking Lessons for Kids

Plan: Use Whis-Kid curriculum, or get with your kids to make a plan of recipes and set dates on the calendar

Implement: Get in the kitchen and have fun!

Evaluate: What worked well? What was learned? How was the meal?

I'm super stoked to share this amazing new resource with you and your family.

We want to help and we have just what you need to....

  • Teach your kids how to cook a meal from start to finish.
  • Have someone else teach them, because it's just too overwhelming to do it yourself.
  • Instill good cooking habits and a love for cooking in your children. 

With each of these, WE GOT YOU.

  • Whis-Kid cooking lessons and my children making the meal, as I instruct them. Your kids can follow along and do the same in your kitchen.
  • It totally helps having someone else teach your children. Think no power struggles and diminishing patience. It takes a village, right?! Well, with the help of video technology and the Whis-Kid Student Guidebook, we can be a part of your village.
  • We will dive into proper food and culinary safety, as well as proper habits for keeping the kitchen clean.
