Kids Cook Real Food- End of the Year Edition

Hey, friends!  It's almost the New Year and what better time than to start some good health habits by teaching cooking with Mrs. Kimball with the Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse.

 
 
 
 
So this time, you can download the FREE Knife Skills Class starting December 28!
 
What you'll learn in these short videos:
*Basic knife skills and techniques for kids age two to teen
 
*Mastery of the three safe ways to hold food while cutting
 
*How child development impacts your child's readiness to learn new skills
 
*The #1 mistake that destroys your chance of enjoying time in the kitchen with your kids
 
*A tested 3-step process for teaching kids in the kitchen so young cooks learn basic skills the right way




Since my kids (especially my son) have taken the Knife Skills Training class I have felt so much better about asking them to help in preparing dinner.  I do supervise, but I can see that they remember so much with the catch phrases that Mrs. Kimball teaches. 

 
 
 
The Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse will officially open for registration from January 11-18. 

Be sure to check out the curriculum map for what is taught in each 8 week class.

I'll be back to share more about our cooking adventures in January!

Volunteer Service

In 2014 my husband came home from work one day and handed me a little piece of paper.  It had the name of our local food bank that he drives past on the way to work and the hours it is open.  He said that he wanted to start volunteering there with our son on Saturday mornings.  So, in December 2014 right after our son turned 6 they both started going to food bank every Saturday morning. 




A few weeks ago I finally started going too!  Our daughter is now old enough to come along as well.  It has been an eye opening experience for me, but I truly wanted to find a way to serve our own community with my husband and as a family.  I think God answered my prayer! 

 
 
 
 



Today, my son and husband went to the Christmas party and my son was honored with a medal for The President's Volunteer Service Award for 100 hours of service!  He also received a signed letter from the White House from President Barak Obama!  I was SO proud.  I am not only proud of my son, but very proud of my husband as well for taking time to teach our children about serving. 

 
May you find blessing as you serve others!

My apologies! RE: Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse



I am so sorry for the blog post that went out about the last day of the Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse.  That was to be on Wednesday morning, not Thursday morning.  So, unfortunately, those who received the email got it too late...for this time!  The Good News is that the course will be available again in the new year, so if you are still interested, you will be put on a waiting list and you will hear more about it. 

Again, my apologies for not getting the blog post to send at the correct time for the registration.

Please check out the Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse sign up page for future notification.

And don't forget to peruse the Curriculum Map for the entire course listing for skills and all levels.

LAST DAY to register for Kids Cook Real Food!


One of my goals in teaching my kids to cook is to build independence and responsibility.  I want them to KNOW how to use what is in the kitchen to make food for themselves and others.  I also want them to learn about healthy eating habits.

Katie Kimball has done a fabulous and professional job at creating a program that is simple and comprehensive for parents.  The videos are fun and interactive.  The printables are loaded with information and recipes to guide you. 

You might be thinking why someone else has to "teach" your kids to cook.  It's so nice to have all the work done for you!  The course is designed for skill levels and there is a clear progression.  I am so impressed with the way this is layed out.  You can see a sneak peek of the curriculum map here: Curriculum Map for Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse.


What I have seen for me and my kids is new enthusiasm and gaining new skills to make cooking fun!  Like I said before, I was not having fun with my kids.  Katie and her class make it enjoyable and educational.  That's a super combination. 

This is the LAST DAY to register for the Kids Cook Real Food ecourse.   I'm excited for you to start this journey!


Sign up today before midnight Eastern time Wednesday, November 2

Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse open today!

Today is the day! 
 Register for the Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse

Before we started the Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse, I was trying to teach my kids some cooking skills.  I was impatient and unrealistic.  I also had no desire to let them pick up a knife.  But that all changed when I watched the free knife skills videos.  A light clicked on in my head and I decided that I would try the course. 

I have been really pleased with all the resources, the video teaching, the real life lessons, the simple instructions for kids to remember with cute sayings and the application that my children have taken to use in our home.  We have been slowly going through this course, but it is so worth it.  I am able to patiently teach my kids and remember to have them practice these skills when I need them for preparing meals for the family.  Eventually, they will make their own food and also make a meal for the family! 

You can also still access the FREE Knife Skills Lessons through November 2
 
 
 
 
I hope you'll take advantage of either the FREE knife skills training or sign up to use the Kids Cook Real Food Ecourse.  Both of these resources are excellent and I appreciate all the work Katie Kimball put into making these resources to help us as parents to properly teach our kids and experience the joy of cooking with our kids.
