This giveaway has ended and the winner is Abby, who wrote: “My children are 7, 5, 3, and 1 and they all love to help in the kitchen. The littlest unloads and loads the silverware and the bigger ones help with mixing, measuring, and occasionally shredding or cutting.”
I have a seven year old and a 1.5 year old and both are constantly in the kitchen with me. My little one is the taste tester. She loves asking for a taste of everything, spices included. My older one is at the point where he can help and loves to chop and peel vegetables.
My 9 year old daughter loves to help in the kitchen. She’s also the designated pasta-taster. She’s getting pretty good at making sure it’s really al dente.
My children are 6, 4, and 2 and they ALL love to help me in the kitchen! Friday is typically our “bake” day and they participate in measuring and adding ingredients all while learning simple math and fun in the kitchen! I love this concept of a once a month cooking curriculum delivered right to your door! (I also “liked” Raddish on Facebook and have been a long time “liker”;) of Simple Homeschool on Facebook as well). Thank you!
My kids are 9,8,5,2. From the time they are small, they are up on a chair in the kitchen, helping me pour, stir, and count. As they get older, I try to give them more involved tasks. I hesitate over some jobs (like using the stove or the oven) because I worry they might not be quite tall enough to do it safely. We just need to work on having them help clean up. 🙂
My daughter is 6 and is always in the kitchen with me. She helps with everything, even drying dishes as needed. And she loves to pretend she is hosting her own cooking show.
I have 3 kids ages 8,7, and 5. They are constantly in the kitchen with me measuring out ingredients, stirring things, and asking questions. They all truly enjoy and want to learn how to cook.
My daughter is 8 and helps out in the kitchen a bit but I can tell she would love to do more. The Raddish kits would be a great way to get us doing more together in the kitchen!
My kids are 10, 9, 7 and 6. They all love to help in the kitchen. This year my oldest two have taken over making breakfast – pancakes, oatmeal pie, eggs, etc. My little two love to help me pack my husband’s lunch each day he works.
My daughters are 1 & 6. I let me 6 yr old help with baking! She loves it!
I also have liked your page (why is there not a LOVE button? !) as well as the Raddish page!
My lids are 8, 6, 2 and 6mo. The 3 bigger ones all love to help in the kitchen, especially my 8 y-o. We have added some basic cooking to her curriculum this year and she loves it! She also loves creating menus for our meals :). They love to measure and add ingredients, stir, and if we are baking, decorate!
I also liked Raddish on FB and liked SH some time ago!
My kiddos are 11, 8.5, 7, 5, 3, and 14 mo. I try to have each of my kiddos help with the food prep and cooking at least one night a week, with the exception of the oldest and the youngest. The oldest actually cooks dinner once a week with a little help from me 🙂
I have a ten year old boy who likes to stir and pretend it’s a concrete mixer 🙂
Hi! I have 3 boys that love to cook! They are 5, 10, and 18. We are a new homeschool family. I include my kids in cooking as much as possible. They love to stir, pour, flip, and especially bake! This kit would be great for us! Thank you for doing this giveaway!
My kids are 10, 8, and 5, and I’m horrible about having them help in the kitchen…but I’m great about following curriculum 🙂 , so this could be perfect for me!
My daughter turns 4 this weekend. She LOVES to cook. Pouring ingredients, stirring, turning on the stand mixer, measuring dry ingredients…and of course eating what we’ve made! She would love this kit 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!
My lads are 8 & 10, this sounds amazing!
~Heather’s latest post: Week: somewhere around 23
We live in the kitchen! My girls are always helping me, set the table, fold the napkins, pick the candle for the center, get ingredients, chop, prepare and serve! It’s a team effort!
Ages: 3, 4, 6, and 7
This curriculum seems awesome!
….I liked Raddish and SH!

My children are 10, 3, and 10 months. My daughter Trinity the oldest loves the kitchen. She loves to cook and also make beauty products like scubs and lotions. My son who is 3 loves to assist in cooking too like helping stir the food.
My kids are 11, 9, 7 and 4 and they love to help out in the kitchen. Baking is the favorite activity! This looks awesome.
Liked on FB.
I have an almost 10, 8 and 4 year old, and our kitchen is the center if our home. Once a month we have “kids cook” night, where the kids develop the (well balanced) menu, make the grocery list, help locate items at the grocery store, slice, dice and prep the table for dinner. The meals are always age appropriate and many ‘o eggs have been dropped on the floor during our meal planning and prep? but that’s part of the learning process. Last year we got age appropriate cookbooks and our favorite one now is based on Little house on the prairie. We ‘be learned the history and importance of growing your own food, and eating local.
My kids are both 4 and they love helping and creating new meals in our kitchen. They both are looking to be more independent in their creations and this is the perfect fit.
Our kiddos are 11, 9,8,6 and almost 2. We love to cook and bake. My kiddos usually help with everything but this brings on a whole new way of fun for cooking and helping in the kitchen with mom and dad.

My children are 6 and 3. They like to help by stirring and adding ingredients. My 6 year old is learning how to cut things (with supervision). My 3 year old likes to mix the pancake batter every Saturday and often tells me what ingredient we need to put in next.
My kids are pre-k and younger. I love having them in the kitchen- kneading bread, measuring ingredients, mixing stuff, adding garnish… I never know what they’re absorbing, though. This sounds like a great way to track the brainwork.
My kids are 11, 9, 8, and 5. They often help to menu plan, grocery shop and prepare their own lunches. I’d like to get better helping them actually “cook”! They are homeschooled and this year when they were discussing what they want to study most, they all chose cooking do this would be great fun!
My girls are 6 and 3. They both love to help me bake and put together simple lunches like “pigs in a blanket” (hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls). This looks like a super fun curriculum!! 🙂
Emily J.’s latest post: Rising Up
My kiddos are 9, 8, 6, 2 and 3 months. Right now my 2 year old sits on the counter every time in in the kitchen; asking questions, tasting fruits and veggies and smelling spices. My oldest 3 are learning to prepare breakfast and lunch independently as part of our school curriculum this year. Raddish sounds right up our alley!!
I like both pages on fb
I have a 9 and 3 year old. My three year old loves to stir what I’m cooking and she loves to help clean up the kitchen or play in the water. My 9 year old doesn’t really love to do anything which I hope to change. His dad is a phenomenal cook and loves doing it too so I would like to instill that love in him too.
Our 4 and 8 year olds love to pick out fresh vegetables at the Farmers Market on Sunday and then juice them or experiment cooking in their own style
I liked both Raddish and Simple Homeschool as well!!
My children are 3 & 5 and I try and let them help me cook a little each day. Yesterday was chicken strips. They were able to help crush the saltine crackers for the crust and even pound the chicken.
They help measure things when I bake and do the stirring.
Hi! My children are 12 and 5. My husband is a great cook…. Me -well, not so much! I have the kids involved by allowing/encouraging them to gather ingredients as well as actually cooking. They love to crack the eggs, stir, cut veggies and especially taste test everything!! This is our first year homeschooling -what a great addition this would be 🙂 Thank you!
How can I not include my kids in cooking!? 🙂 They want to be in on the action, so they get to measure, stir, watch the timer, blow on things, etc. And they have chores to help with clean up. They are 11, 10, 7, 4, and 2. The 5 month old will get her hands in the mix one day, too, I’m sure!
My boys are 7 and 4. They both like to help me bake–especially crack eggs and lick the bowl! (Yes, I’m a life-long raw batter licker… It’s worth the risk to me. 🙂 My oldest has just asked to learn to chop veggies, which makes me nervous, but I’m teaching him to use a knife safely with supervision. This curriculum looks so fun.

We all watch the show MasterChef together and I’ve loved seeing how it inspires the kids. My oldest, 13, has a number of specialties, like quesadillas, oatmeal cookies, and poached eggs. His younger brother, 10, makes a mean fruit salad, and their sister, 9, is 100% independent making pudding. Even the two-year-old has fun in the kitchen, begging like a baby bird, or pouring herself bowls of cereal. Now when we attend a potluck, we often bring dishes the kids have made!
My kids are 12, 8, 2, 7weeks. My girls get to cook with me and on their own. In fact, my 8 year old is cooking everyone eggs right now. They help me plan, prep and cook meals. This also means they get to help clean after. My 2 year old helps prep, stir, pour and other small tasks. He also carries plates of food to the table and has not dropped one yet. My 7 week old is only involved with prep and that is because I am usually wearing him in the Moby wrap…lol! He goes to the swing when hot is involved.
My son, 7, and my daughter is 8. I really don’t have to do much to get them in the kitchen. They gravitate to it if they know I am ready to start a meal. MY son is my Sous Chef and my daughter, is my pastry chef. He loves to read the recipes and gather the ingredients. He also likes to slice, dice and chop. My daughter bakes the best brownies and the best spice cakes. She is a great help cleaning up too.
My boys are 6 and 3. My oldest loves to watch cooking shows with me and is always helping me in the kitchen. This would be wonderful!
We are brand-new to home schooling, and I’m determined that my 11 year old son and 9 year old daughter are both completely at home around kitchens and preparing food. It’s an absolutely essential life skill!
My Dylan is 5 and Bella is almost 8. Every weekend, we make breakfast together and learn about measurement. They both love to cook, but Dylan is the one who wants to be a chef when he grows up.
My kids are 14, 12, and 10. I involve them in the kitchen when I bake or cook dinner. I also encourage them to make their own simple lunches during our homeschool days.
PS. I am heading over to Facebook to ‘like’ both Raddish and SH. Bella says I forgot to tell you that her favorite TV shows are Cupcake Wars, Ace of Cakes and Iron Chef 🙂
I have a 6 year old. We don’t do anything in the kitchen together so I thought Radish looked like it would be fun to start doing.
Liked Raddish and Simple Homeschool on Facebook! Thank you!
Ages 6 and 4. They like to help with measuring and mixing.
My kids are 12, 10 and 4. I haven’t been real great about letting the kids in the kitchen due to food allergies in our home. I always worry about cross contamination. However, my 9 y old daughter has been begging to be involved in the kitchen so this would be wonderful!
My children are 6 and 3. We love to garden so our favorite kitchen time is often working with things we’ve grown! They love to make apple turnovers and my 3 yo has lately become an enthusiastic salad eater.
My children are 7, 5, 3, and 1 and they all love to help in the kitchen. The littlest unloads and loads the silverware and the bigger ones help with mixing, measuring, and occasionally shredding or cutting.
I also Liked Raddish and Simple Homeschool. 🙂
My daughters are 20, 17, 14, and 11. I have tried various ways at getting them involved in the kitchen. I have from time to time had their help with cooking dinner, menu planning, having them plan, prepare, and serve a meal. My youngest daughter loves to be in the kitchen. This curriculum would help so much with helping her see the science and math involved.
What a great idea Radish is! I have 4 kids, ranging in age from 6 to 11, and each child has one day of the week that he or she is my kitchen helper. They help plan dinner at the beginning of the week, factoring in nutrition and timing (whatever activities that day/evening may have). Then on his or her day to help, the child participates in some way with all of the steps involved, from defrosting ingredients to picking veggies and chopping fresh herbs from our little garden, to cooking and helping decide where we will eat (often outside in the summer!). It’s been a sweet way to connect with my children individually, as well as to instill life-long memories, skills, and relationships. We are all learning together, since not every recipe is a success! The biggest downfall is that we aren’t always as consistent as I’d like at doing this every week. Perhaps something like Radish could give is just the bit of extra incentive we need to stay on track!
PS I likes Radish and Simple Homeschool on Facebook! 🙂
(Ughhh, I mean I likeD them, not likeS them … Ha!)
And also ughhh – Raddish with 2 d’s, of course 😉
My kids are five and three. I let them stir, add ingredients, or fetch things from the pantry whenever possible. They also cut out cookies and sometimes get their own ball of dough to play with.
My son is 2 and he loves helping make smoothies.
My kids are just 13 and 15, the have always been my kitchen helpers, they prep and read recipes and are great stirrers.
I ‘liked’ both pages.
I try to get them to help me with meal prep, and they love to make up their own recipies and try them out. We are homeschoolers, and I would love to add this to our days! I like Raddish and Simple Homeschool on Facebook.
My kids are 8, 6, and 4. They help out with mixing and measuring. This sounds fun and creative.
My Kids are 9 and 11. The 11 year old is already preparing and making meals. He is quite the budding chef. The 9 year old loves to bake.
my kids are 7 and 5… but I have a 2.5 and 9 mo. too so it’s hard to get in the kitchen with the kids! love this idea
liked both on Facebook!
My kids are 8,6, and almost 2. I try to have them help by washing fruit and veggies, cutting, stirring and measuring
My daughter is 6. My daughter is in the kitchen with me all the time!. She helps me make dinner every night and we bake all the time! She knows how to read a measuring cup by herself! I’m super excited about this giveaway! Thanks for the chance!!!
My boys are 7 and 5. My oldest loves helping with baking. Really need to get them more involved in everyday meal planning.
Our children are age 9,7, 4 and 1. We rotate having a ” kitchen helper” for meals. It includes some meal prep but mainly setting the table and helping carry things back and forth at this point.
I like both on Facebook 🙂
My son is 13 and my daughter is 9. My son is not to interested in doing much in the kitchen but my daughter loves to bake and cook!
My kids are 14, 12, 8, and 5. From as soon as they were able the kids have been helping me back in the kitchen. We LOVE to bake! As they get older they are wanting to do more on their own, which opens a whole new world of learning for them. It’s a lot of fun.
My daughter is 13 and loves to bake. She is definitely interesting in learning more and this curriculum sounds wonderful!
My daughter is 12. I have only been successful in getting her help with desserts and bread. I would love her help with dinner prep ( or anything that involves veggies!)
My kids are 10, 9, and 7. When I’m not pressed for time I try to invite one of all of them to participate in meal preparation – they’ll measure and mix or cut softer food items or even read steps of the recipe for me.
My kids are 8 and 11. They help make things they like — like pancakes and homemade applesauce. They used to pack their own lunches when they went to school. Now that we’re homeschooling, I plan to get them involved in menu planning, shopping, and cooking dinners.
I “like” Raddish and Simple Homeschool on Facebook. 🙂
My boys are 7 & 4 and have graduated from licking the bowl and spoon to now the 7 yr old makes breakfast for he and his brother.
I liked both pages
My 10 year old learned fractions in the kitchen!
Now my 8 and 3 year old are ready to get hot! Raddish would be great!
My 8 year old loves to make lunch & lemonade for us pretty regularly. I have been planning on extending her kitchen skills this year. What a great help this would be! I am not on Facebook……but I like simple homeschool & Raddish 🙂
My kids have been in the kitchen since they were toddlers. My 11 year old daughter can now make full meals and is an amazing baker. Sure, there were TONS of messes to clean up but it’s so worth it!
My kids are 8, 7, 6, 5, & 1. The older four really like to help cook, but it is hard for me to let them some days. My 1yr often “cooks” in the sink while I prepare meals. He loves to do what we do!
I like both on fb 🙂
4, 6, 8-I’m actually terrible at involving kids in the kitchen. I feel like that is the one place I get to be alone. I’m working to change that. Kids often tear up lettuce for a salad, put toppings on pizza, and assemble simple sandwiches. The 8yo makes oatmeal and pancakes for breakfast. The kids are capable of so much more. I’d love to try this kit.
My kids are 6, 5, 3 (triplets), 2 and 6 months. All of them love to help pour ingredients and stir, but the 5yo is interested in learning to do more.
My boys are 2 and 4. We have weekly baking days and they help me prep dinner every night- they both love to be in the kitchen!
My children are 10 and 6. My 10 year old really loves to cook. She finds her own recipes and does the math to increase or half it in her head. My 6 year old is learning that food tastes better when you help cook it.
5, 3 and 1. Pouring, measuring, stirring. Just started letting my 5 year old season the meat, etc. The 1 year old pulls out all the plastic plates, bowls and cups 🙂
My kids are 7 and 9, and, unfortunately, I don’t involve them in the kitchen very much. Because I am not very comfortable there myself, the stress associated with throwing them into the mix tends to be too much for me. I think having a curriculum like this (which I never knew existed!) could help us so much!
My son is 5. We have a weekly cooking date — Tasty Tuesday — where he gets to choose a cooking project that we work on together.
This looks amazing! My kiddos are 5 & 7. Every now and then they will each get to help make a meal or we all make something special together. Cooking together is something I would love to do more of!
I just liked Raddish on Facebook & I already like Simple Homeschool!
I have littles to teens and our favorite part of cooking is the “together” time! We love talking, visiting and sharing together. Somehow, cooking unites people and bonds them- that’s our best part!
I *love* this idea. My kids are 5 & 7 and they always want to help in the kitchen. With really complicated dinner meals, I tend to shoo them out o the kitchen, but most days I have them help with a few things, from setting the table to putting small portions of certain things on all our plates. They often help me make the bread (well, dump the ingredients for the breadmaker!) and will happily lick my spatula any day. 🙂

I have 4 little ones, ages 2, 8,8 and 9. They love to help in the kitchen from measuring out ingredients to just stirring. But their favorite thing to do is to break the eggs of course 🙂
Both Raddish and Simple Homeschool liked on FB! Thank you for doing this giveaway
My daughter is 3 1/2 and she has her own knife to help with chopping veggies, she also measures and mixes
Both radish and simple homeschool liked.
Wow, what a great idea! My kids are 6, 5, 3, and 2. They are always wanting to help in the kitchen, so this would be wonderful. I usually ask one child per meal to help me, so there aren’t too many cooks in the kitchen =)
My kids are 8, 6, and 2. They want to help me in the kitchen and I could definitely use some direction in this area.
I have 4 kids ages 21, 18, 11 and 8. They help pick the menu, help with clean up, and both my girls live helping me bake. I liked both pages 🙂
My kids are 3 and 6 and so far they help measure, stir, chop some things and do lots of taste testing!
What a great idea! I stumbled across this and am super excited about it. Perfect to include in our schooling. Also going to share with a friend who has a daughter begging to cook. Facebook like for sure!
My kids are almost 8 and 5.5. They set the table, and the younger loves to help stir and to help make salads. My older (boy) isn’t interested even though my husband does most of our cooking!
My daughter is 8 and she loves to cook. We try to do a weekly cooking lesson but it has been hard to be consistent.
My daughter is 5 and she is responsible for choosing, shopping for and helping to cook dinner one day each week. She always looks forward to the day and talks all week about which of her favorite foods she’s going to choose
My kiddos are 11 and 13. Funny, they seem to want to help in the kitchen only when there’s baking involved 😉
My children are 9, 7, 5 and 4…They all LOVE to cook! My 9 yr. old has been making creations on her own, this sounds wonderful!!!!!
Our daughter is 8 and we involve her in cooking by having her help chop ingredients, measure, stir, and flip pancakes. She would love Raddish, and so would her parents!
Ages 7 and 11, and they love to cook. We bake a lot together and I’m sure they would love this (and me too)!
My kids are 8 and 14 and they love to cook. They measure ingredients, stir and bake or cook on the stove (with my supervision). This would be an awesome help!
My children are 5 and 8 and they love to be right there alongside me helping out in the kitchen. From washing and chopping to mixing and stirring, they are a joy to cook with! They would love to win a subscription to Raddish and so would this mama.
I ” like” Raddish and Simple Homeschool on Facebook, too. 🙂
Kids are ages 13 and 8. They help pick out the menu and this year the 13 year old is learning to plan, shop, and prepare a weeks worth of meals.
OOoo, I can’t wait.
This would be a great gift to my daughter who has just started showing interest in cooking.
My kids are 10 and 8. They help find things at the grocery store, gather ingredients at home, chop, mix, stir, taste test and offer valuable critiques on the final taste and presentation! 😉 We’d love Raddish!
We also Liked both of your pages 🙂
My daughters are 17 and 14. They will often help out as “sous chefs” during dinner prep. The 17 year old will also prepare a dinner for the family once or twice a month.
My girls are 8 and 5. I love it when they help me cook – the oldest helps a lot with breakfast prep and snack prep after school. We make salsa together and often have “pancake tastings” …. trying all kinds of weird ingredients in our pancakes to see what we like. The youngest loves to stir and taste 🙂
I forgot to add… I’ve “liked” both sites on FB. 🙂
My daughter is 8. I would love to begin this adventure.
I also liked both pages.
This is so neat! My kiddos are 5 and 3 and love to help in the kitchen! My daughter, 5, does a great job cracking eggs, measuring and pouring. My son, 3, will pour in dry and wet ingredients after his sister measures them. 🙂 It’s a team effort!
My children are 11, 8, and 5. They love to help in the kitchen so I will let them pick what they want to make and do as much as they can by themselves. My middle daughter even loves to come up with her own recipes to try!
My kids are 11,10,7,3 and 1
The one year old likes to watch , the 7 and 3 year old enjoy helping with all kinds of things . The 11 and 10 year old like to make individual pizza’s.
Code doesn’t work 🙁
Hi Sonja, w’re excited for you to cook up fun with Raddish! Two quick notes about the code — it is case sensitive and valid on 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions. Do you mind trying again when you have a chance? Happy cooking!
I liked both raddish and simple homeschool on Facebook!
My kids are 10, 6 and 2. They all help in the kitchen almost daily. My oldest also makes a dish or dessert of his choice once a week for the family and my 6-year-old makes breakfast at least a couple times a week. They love cooking and baking!
My kids are 6, 4, 2 and one on the way. My 6 year old would love to help me more, but the younger ones usually join in and make more chaos than food, so I end up finding something else for them all to do. I would love some help with this!
I have four kiddos (6, 4, 2, and 11 months). They all love to help in the kitchen when we bake.
Looks like a really cool curriculum, I liked the FB page.
I liked Simple Homeschool on FB (great resource!).
My kids are 6 & 4. I always try and involve them when I am cooking/baking. It is usually to measure out ingredients (with my help] and dump them into the dish , stir things, turn on and off the appliances. Raddish looks like something right up our alley!
I like both on FB :]
My kids are 7, 5 and 3. Honestly, I’m not great at getting them in the kitchen. It overwhelms me! But this would be a great tool to help get me to do it more!
My kiddos are 12, 10 and 6. This would be a great schooling addition for us. I try to get them basic skills in the kitchen…chopping, mixing, measuring. However, I am not very consistent and it would be great to have some materials to help us along. Thanks!
I liked Simplehomeschool and Raddish on FB too!
6,2,2mo. My kids love helping crack eggs in the morning
Liked both on FB
My youngest is almost 13 and he loves to cook! He has decided that he wants to be a pastry chef and open a bakery near a beach somewhere when he grows up. He does a bunch of cooking by himself and even made a full dinner for the family the night I came home from the hospital after I had major surgery! He also cooks on the Boy Scout camp-outs and has been known to help the other boys learn how to do things. I think he would love to try one of the Raddish cooking boxes!
My kids are 11, 9, 7, 5, 3, 1, and one on the way. My kids help a ton in the kitchen! The time invested early on to teach them is serving us well now as they are growing into a huge help! I love this idea! I’ve never heard of Raddish! Thanks, Jamie, for sharing another cool tool with us!
We have two kiddos ages 4 & 10 but are in the process of adding two more ages 12 and 15. Cooking is something we can all do…sometimes together but more often just one of them and I, which allows for some of the best conversations! Thanks for this opportunity.
Justyn @ Creative Christian Mama
What a wonderful idea! My girls (ages 2 and 6) absolutely love to help out in the kitchen. I’ll be sharing this giveaway on my FB page, since I have a lot of readers I know would love it. 🙂 Thanks!
Justyn @ Creative Christian Mama’s latest post: Proverbs 31 Lady: The Real Ideal? Part One
My kids are 9, 6 and 2. The 9 year old is getting pretty good at very basic kitchen jobs and the 6 year old loves to “help” when I cook. The 2 year old just likes to bang on pots and pans!
My kids are 7 and 5. They love to help cook, make up weekly menus, create artistic appetizers and bake. My 7 year old says he wants to be a Master Chef! 🙂 I have been looking for a ‘curriculum’ of sorts to help direct specific skills/themes and ideas that they will get to do with their Grandma as part of schooling once a month and this looks like a perfect fit! I also LIKED both sites on FB. Thanks for the great opportunity with this giveaway!
I have a six year old and a one year old. As of now I don’t involve my older son in cooking meals but I want to start.
I have a 10 year old daughter who has been very interested in cooking on her own lately. I am always trying to find healthy kid friendly recipes for her to try out.
My kids are 7, 11 and 13. They all have their own strengths in the kitchen and Ive noticed they’re much more willing to try new recipes when they’ve had a part in making them.
I just liked Raddish on Facebook!
My kids are 8, 8, and 10. I honestly don’t have them help me in the kitchen very often because they are so easily distracted. They help with stirring and setting the table mostly. Sad, but true! I would love some great ideas for how to get them to more interested!
7, 12, 14, 19, 20……The 7yo is currently asking to learn to cook, so we have incorporating his enthusiasm into dinner each evening.
I have a 12, 8 and 2 year old. I involve them in meal planning and some prep. The 12 year old can make some things on his own, and we were just talking about having him make his own cookbook.
I have 6 kids, 13, 11, 8, 5, 3 and 3 months. My 8 year old especially loves to cook and bake. All she wants for presents are “cooking supplies”! I think Raddish would be great for her.
Liked Raddish on Facebook.
I try to include my three children, ages 6, 7, and 7, in preparing dinner with me. They are also completely able to make their own lunch and breakfast; an empowerment that they love!
I have an 8, 6, & 4 year old. They often like to help me when I’m baking. The control freak in me has to remember it’s ok if it takes three times as long. 🙂
I already “like” Simple Homeschool, but I also “liked” Raddish today on fb.
My son who is 5 and I love to do things together in the kitchen. He measures , cracks eggs and mixes. I can cook the simplest of things but would like for him (and me) to learn so much more.
I have two girls 4 and 10! The older one has been cooking with her grandma since she was a toddler and has already mastered quite a bit! She makes the best deviled eggs! The 4 year old is just starting to help in the kitchen and loves to stir and pour. Her favorite thing though is mixing the meatloaf ingredients with her hands! 🙂
I’ve “liked” Simple Homeschool for awhile on facebook (and in real life) and now I “like” Raddish as well.
My daughter is 10 and she’s been helping me in the kitchen for about a year now. She baked cupcakes for her Nana’s birthday a few weeks ago all by herself (with the exception of the oven)! She loves to bake and can make a few small entrees on her own. I take pictures of my food so I can include them with the recipes in the cookbooks I’m making for her.
I’ve liked Simple Homeschool and Raddish on Facebook.
Kids are 13, 13, 7 and 4. Only one of my older kids likes to help in the kitchen and he can pretty much do anything I ask of him now. But the 7yo is a budding chef even though he’s just now learning the basics. The 4 yo is a very active girl that has trouble following steps still.
9,11,16,18,19…. My teens love to cook and our a great help in the kitchen. My younger two are starting to learn the basics like cooking eggs, browning meat, boiling pasta. I think it is important for them to learn to prepare fresh food!
Already liked Simple Homeschool but liked Raddish today.
My son is 7 and my daughter is 5. We homeschool and I love this idea of a cooking curriculum. Our home is a very open floor plan so we spend a lot of time together during food preparation. I know in my heart that the kitchen is an extension of our class room.
My kids are 12 and 8. They have been asking lately to learn to do more cooking, so I’ve been having them help me with dinners recently. I was just thinking the other day that it would be nice to have a systematic way to go about learning the skills they need to know to be successful!

My girls are 7 and 5 and they help me constantly in the kitchen with all kinds of recipes! Sometimes they just add and stir, sometimes they go re in depth and sometimes they even clean up! Cooking brings us together and let’s us enjoy the fruits of our labor and time together!
9,7,3,1. They love to help me cook and bake and are learning lots, but I definitely need to be more intentional about it.
I already “like” Simple Homeschool (and LOVE it!) and I just “liked” Raddish!
7 kids and one on the way, ages 16, 14, 14, 12, 5, 3, 1, and baby 8 due in November. The older kids help make meals and love to bake. The little ones help stir and prepare snacks. The kitchen is the place to be! 🙂
My daughters are 6 and 2 (with baby #3 on the way). My 6 old loves to help in the kitchen. She will ask to help stir, mix, flip etc, etc anytime hubby or I am making something. She also loves to bake on her own.
I have already liked both pages. 😉
We have 5 girls – 17, 16, 4, 2, and 6months. The oldest two don’t live with us full time, but one of their chores when they are here is to cook one meal per week. They do the planning, get together a shopping list and prep. It started as a way for them to learn to cook. My 4yo and 2 yo stand on their learning towers and help measure and stir. They are always helping in the kitchen!
5 yr old boy. Loves cracking eggs. Whenever he asks to help, no matter what, I always say YES.
I have 12 year old twin girls and I try to involve them as much as possible in our daily cooking. I have taught them how to cook their breakfast and snacks.
8,5,2 & 1. The oldest is prepping vegetables, measuring ingredients, etc.
My son is 4 and he loves helping to add ingredients to whatever we are making! We talk about the measurement too…he especially loves making cookies and cleaning the bowl after 😉
I have 2 boys who are both 6. Each week each boy gets a chance to help me cook dinner in the kitchen.
I have an almost 3 year old, 5 year old, and 7 year old. They love to help bake, I let them measure ingredients, scoop cookies, and enjoy the tasty treats they create. They really enjoy telling Dad what they made and watching him try some too! I would love to find ways to help them get more involved and do more than just baking.
I already “liked” simple homeschool, and was happy to hear about and “like” radish!
I have a 10, 5, and 2 year old. All girls. And a baby due Jan 19th..who is also a girl! 🙂 My kids love to bake. Measuring and stirring are their favorites. I’m excited for fall time because we spend a lot of time in the kitchen!

I have a 12 yo daughter, 10 yo son, and an 8 month old girl. My 12 yo makes breakfasts and breads for the family. My son makes breakfast as well as helps pick our food from our garden. The little one sits in the kitchen with us when the kids, mom, and dad cook. We are working on nutrition for our homeschool curriculum this year. Teaching the kids about healthy eating and being able to make their own food is so important.
My boys are 3 and 5. They are always wanting to make concoctions in the kitchen so we are always experimenting with different recipes. They would love these boxes! Thanks so much!
I have a 14 yo who is a great cook, and I have 6 yo twins who are just learning. They like to help chop veggies, stir, and add things to the bowl/pan. We’ve been practicing “folding” with cinnamon sprinkled on applesauce. 🙂

My son is 2 and he is always by my side in the kitchen. We’ve recently started mixing ingredients with a whisk, turning the know on the food processor, and pouring our own cereal. He loves being kept busy and involved!
Oh!! My son would LOVE this! He has been begging to learn to cook a dish every day. I try to call him when I’m making dinner and just explain the process and let him do what he is able.
My kids are 6 and 3. We let the kids chop things, stir, drop ingredients in, etc. I have liked Simple Homeschool and Rad Dish on Facebook as well.
My family ages ranges from preschool through middle school and we especially love baking together! Cupcakes and drop cookies are two favorites. This subscription idea is wonderful!!!’

My kids are 5&2. My 5 yr old has been baking with mommy since she was 2 and is ready to do more cooking. This looks awesome!
My kids are only 3 and 10 months, but the 3yo LOVES to help in the kitchen!
My boys are 6 (almost 7) and 8 and they love baking and just recently started to help cook as well. They love to play “chopped” and “master chef” and act like it is their own cooking show when they help me! I look forward to the day when they will (hopefully) begin to cook some, meals 🙂
I follow Simple Homeschool on Facebook.
5 & 3. Always the sweet stuff : ) However, I pulled them inside one evening to help with dinner and the picky one was excited to try it since he helped. He didn’t eat it, but he didn’t complain about it either. Small victories.
My kids are 7, 6, 3, and 1. I really don’t do anything special, they just like to help! But the 7 yr old especially is wanting to be more independant in the kitchen, this would be fantastic start.
My kids are 6, 4, and 20 months, and they enjoy stirring, adding ingredients, and attempting to measure. They mostly enjoy when we bake goodies, not as much when it feels more boring like supper! Thanks for this giveaway.

My kids are 5 & 7 years old. They both love to help make the weekend pancakes or Dutch Babies; and this school year we have begun a baking lesson on Fridays as part of of our “life skills” curriculum. We would love to try Raddish!
My boys are 9,10 & 13. I have been having them read recipes and help make everything from suppers to desserts. I would love something to help me teach them everything so I don’t forget anything.
My kids are 2 and half and 5 yrs old.My older ones measures, stirs and mixes when I am baking. He loves opening and dropping eggs in bowl, his favorite part.
My daughter takes over the used utensils and imitates me and her brother.
We play a cooking show game , we love it.
My children are ages 5 & 7. They love to come and help make meals. I like to cook/bake with them together but also individually. Cooking with each child allows me to spend some one on one time with them, listen to them, and teach them some vital skills.

My kids are 5 & 7! They love to help bake, make smoothies, watch food boil on the stove (who says a watched pot never boils?), make ice cream and popsicles, and just about anything else we can come up with! My 7yo has also recently started making his own kooky sandwich creations which he loves because he is able to do it himself, from start to finish.

My kids are 8, 7, 5 & 3. My 7 year old daughters favorite books to read are cookbooks, she checks them out at the library. I involve my kids by having them help decide on what we want to eat, they help find grocery items at the store, they help with food prep, measuring and stirring.
I *liked* Raddish on FB and already follow Simple Homeschool!
We have a 6 year old and 11 year old and would love to find ways to encourage them in the kitchen. Raddish looks like a fun find. Thanks!
My daughter is 5 years old. She helps measure, stir, and read the recipes we cook together.
I have a 14 year old, and it takes very little work to involve her in the kitchen. She chooses recipes she’s interested in on the internet, prints or saves them, and then tells me the ingredients she needs, and makes the items herself. Usually it is baking, but she also likes to do stir-fry recipes.
I have a five-year-old and a newborn at home. My five-year-old will mix anything, and she loves to help me make cookies, make granola, and knead bread dough. She also sets the dinner table often. She also loves to help me shop for groceries at Trader Joe’s with her own kid cart!
My kids are 11, 8, 5 and 3. All my kids enjoy helping out in the kitchen especially when it comes to baking.

My son is 3 and my daughter is 2. My son loves to help me in any way he can in the kitchen. I usually let him pour premeasured ingredients in and I let him get stuff from the refrigerator and put it back. He also loves to help load and unload the dish washer. My daughter is not as interested in helping, but I let her play with the pots and pans and a spoon. She pretends she is cooking and stirs. My son is so had sensory issues and we cannot get him to eat. I am starting to include him in more meal making in hopes that he will feel pride in what he did and want to try it. My daughter eats anything I give her!
we have a 5 yo, 4 yo, 2 yo and 9 week old…everyone helps measure, crack eggs, read the recipe…the baby helps by sleeping in the boba carrier 😉 some of our favorite things to make are yeast breads, banana or pumpkin bread, scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes…pretty much whenever im in the kitchen, theyre there too! 🙂
My kids are 13, 11, 10, 8, 4, 2, and one on the way. They all love to help out in the kitchen, but I am not always good at involving them. Love the idea of the Radish box 🙂
My 3 year old loves to do anything she can in the kitchen. We bake together.
I like SH on FB.
My son is 4, and I am struggling with how to involve him in the kitchen, since it seems like I’m usually using a sharp knife or hovering over a hot burner. He asks to help frequently, though, so I’m trying hard to figure out how to involve him! This might be right up his alley!
I like Simple Homeschool on Facebook.
My kids are 18, 17 & 5. We have taught the older two to cook now we are teaching the 5 year old. We let him help with the mixer, stirring ingredients in and helping pick out what he wants to make. Would love some new ideas….
My boys are 9 and 11. I try to get them in to the kitchen to help me any time I can. I grew up cooking and hope to pass this on to my children. I think they will really enjoy this!
My kids are 13, 11, and 7. Most of the time they help with sous chef responsibilities, but my daughter is the self- proclaimed cookie queen, whether we like it or not. My 7 year old has been asking me to teach him to cook so this could be the kickstart I need.
My children are 10 and 8 and we LIVE in the kitchen. They love to create different recipes out of RAW food. They are creating a cookbook and are interested in hosting a dinner party where they create everything on their own: from appetizers to dessert. WE love doing math, reading and a lot more while cooking in the kitchen!!
I liked Raddish Kids on Facebook!
My kids are 3, 5, and 7. They are involved with lots of food prep. I love having child-safe knives for chopping vegetables. My oldest is a pro at making pancakes now!
My kids are 5 and 10 years old! I try to have them help me make special treats like cookies and brownies. They also love to help me make tortillas because they get to use the rolling pin!
I have a 4 yo and a 5 yo. They love to help cut foods, pour, stir and measure. I would love to get them more involved though!
My girls are 6y and 2y. My 6yo loves helping in the kitchen and I am planning on handing off a simple breakfast routine to her this year as part of our schooling. The idea of a culinary curriculum is brilliant!

My children are 8 and 10. My 8 year-old loves to help me in the kitchen. He is usually there trying to do the messy stuff, and even though I dread messes I let him, reminding myself continually to step back and let him do it alone. My 10 year-old likes to help only when she doesn’t have a book to read (which is rarely) so I usually call her and entice her with a licking of the spoon when we are done. Desserts are their favorite recipes, and anything to do with eggs.

My kids are 13 and 9 and I love including them in special dinner days where they get to pick all the dishes for dinner and I am their assistant in the kitchen.
My littles are 3 & 2. They like to help any way they can: scooping, pouring, mixing, setting the table, putting items away and of course tasting.
My little women are 5, 3, almost 2 and 2 weeks. We spend a lot of time in our kitchen – measuring, stirring, kneading, spilling and eating. Still working on the cleaning up part 🙂
My children are 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, & 3. My children LOVE helping in the kitchen! They take turns on different nights of the week being the “dinner helper.” They also love to join in on any baking project. My 8 year old daughter is the most involved, and she has recently begun learning to bake on her own.
My kids are 2 & 5. Whenever we bake they get to pour and mix. I try to include them when cooking too if they are interested!
Like both on fb!
I liked you both on FB! My kids are 6,4, and 16 months.
I involved them in making our smoothies, making home made playdoh, and helping measure out the water or rice. Also when its a special occasion we will make cakes and they help with all the measuring and mixing!
Thank you, Teresa
My children are 10, 5 1/2, and 2. We started a baking club with some other homeschool friends and just had our first meeting yesterday! We baked brownies, 6 kids 10 and under all helped. I include my children in the kitchen by having them help measure various ingredients, clean up trash (egg shells!), unload the dishwasher, and set the table. I’m trying to teach them that food preparation is more than making and eating food. It’s planning, shopping, “mise en place”, enjoying the process of cooking and eating with loved ones, and cleaning up. We would eat Raddish up!

My girls are 5,3, 18months. They love cooking. Anything I’m doing they pull up a chair!! My 5 year old even loves cooking shows on tv, which she calls “making shows”. I hope she loves to cook when she’s older!!
My kids (7,5,3) love helping in the kitchen! This subscription looks so fun.
Our kids are 7, 6, and 5. The kitchen we use is not very kid-friendly, so many discussions including perusing from my learning how-to-cook first guide “Good-Housekeeping Cookbook” are held at the table or on the couches. We discuss how things are made as I cook. I don’t bake much until winter as our 9 months of “summer” keep the inspiration to use the oven low, but the occasional baked goody is always stirred and prepared with their little hands involved. I am a cook, not so much a baker, but I guarantee baked goods come out perfect because their little hands give the love the goody needs! This year we will add basics of cooking/baking to our curriculum. I am almost certain they will all do great! Play-doh creations are always their own versions of cooking that are brought to me for sampling! Nothing but plastic knives, Play-doh, and a little plate with their imaginations and they are masterchefs!
I have 2 boys, ages 4 and 2. Both of them love helping me around the kitchen, so it would be fun to try this out!
And I did Like Raddish on Facebook whether we win or not :). I have Simple Homeschool Liked for a few months now and LOVE it!
My kids are 5, 4, 3, 1, and 2 months. We love to bake together! Especially our banana chocolate chip muffins! It gets crazy with four want to help, but sometimes I’ll even give the one year old a tiny bowl of batter to stir while the others help pour and mix…and of course, everyone gets to help lick the bowl at the end. 🙂
I have 3 kids, ages 10, 6, and 1. The two oldest help with the dishes. My 10 year old will fix easy breakfasts and lunches for the family and is starting to help cook dinner. My 6 year old loves to help me bake.
I like both raddish and simple homeschool on fb.
Our kids are 5,7,9,11; they all love helping in the kitchen, and they all pick out kid cookbooks when ever we go to the library. This looks like it might be a fun program.
My 13 is learning to cook, and my 3 years LOVES to help in the kitchen (and elsewhere…).
This looks awesome! My children are 4 and 2 and my 2 year old loves to help me in the kitchen– my 4 year old, not so much. I would love to try this program and help encourage my 4 year old to spread his culinary wings- I think he would really enjoy it!
Thanks so much for the great giveaway!
Hi, Our last child at home is our 7 year old son. He is not as involved in the kitchen as the older kids were. Right now setting the table and making cookies is his portion. Raddish sounds like a great program!!!
My kids are 10 and 5. To be honest, I don’t involve them much in the preparation but they are involved in planning (snacks and all meals). My oldest (my son) can prepare convenience foods but that’s about it. He would love to help out in the kitchen but I don’t know where to start! And I don’t bake but I’m willing to learn right along with them.
I have been homeschooling for about 26 years. My older daughter is now homeschooling her older estate daughter and her son is enrolled in a Waldorf satellite school. I have 7 children, but only my 8 year old daughter is still at home. Jadyn and I cook all the time. She loves helping make fresh juices and baking. I would be fun to learn some new things about food and cooking with her. We love your Facebook posts!
I already liked Simple Homeschool on FB but just now I liked Raddish too. It sounds like a fun product! (I am a different name on FB, email me if you need it)
Thanks for the opportunity!
I have two children- ages two and almost five. My oldest asks to help every time he sees an adult in the kitchen. He has been “helping” me in the kitchen since he could stand. Today, his favorite part is cracking the eggs and his precision is down to an art! He also likes kneading bread dough, utilizing and reading the measurement tools. I always try to explain some of the sciences behind what we are making as well:
“We need yeast for this reason”, or “The eggs in this recipe do this”.
My two year old loves doing anything my oldest does. She makes bigger messes, but that doesn’t detour us from keeping her involved every step of the way.

My nine yr. old loves to help with cooking and food prep. She’d rather watch cooking shows on TV than anything else! Looks like a fun curriculum!
My sons are 11, 5, and 1. The 5 and 11 yr old are involved by taking turns helping with dinner, or snacks.
My sous chefs are 6 and 4. We are working on simple fractions (1/2, 1/4) with the 6 year old so her job is measuring. Both kids are learning how to peel carrots, are scrubbing vegetables and general kitchen basics. Also, we discuss nutritional info while making our meals.
My kids are almost 5, 3 1/2, 2 and 10 months. I absolutely love to cook, and my kids love to “help” (whether they are being truly helpful or not!). They enjoy cutting salad with plastic knives, mixing things, and putting bread into the toaster oven.
Kiddos are 6, 3 and baby due next month. “Cooking and Nutrition” is part of our homeschooling. Both kids are part of meal planning, meal prep, and snack prep. Their favorite part is being kitchen assistants for dinner. We would LOVE to try Raddish!

My daughter is 8, my boys are 14 and 12. My oldest helps with actually cooking the food. Everything from lasagna to hamburgers. The younger two help more with prep work like breaking eggs, making marinade, stirring. Also, my oldest make chocolate chip cookie bars by himself and the 12 year old makes cakes by himself. I always end up operating the oven though.
My daughter is 11 and loves to prepare food. She has been helping in the kitchen from an early age.
My girls are 8 and 10…my 8 year old loves to chop vegetables (which requires close supervision by me!) and chop and wash lettuce. She enjoys using our salad spinner to get the lettuce nice and dry! My sweet-toothed 10 year old loves to bake…cakes, cupcakes, brownies, donuts…and her artistic skills come into play when frosting desserts. What a fun subscription idea – Raddish looks likes something we would definitely be interested in!
MY kids are 8,6, and 4, and I don’t involve them in cooking nearly as much as I should! Usually just washing the veggies or helping me get things from the cupboard.
My girls are 4, almost 3 and 5 days old. 🙂
My girls and I love to cook together. They are very curious about the whole making and cooking process. We’re leaving kitchen etiquette, scooping, measuring, pouring, basically the basics.
They’re also learning about cleaning up. They enjoy doing the dishes. While that’s a bit more messy than I’d like I know it’s important they learn how to be a part of our family and care of a home.

My boys are 3 and 1. The 3 yr old gets to crack eggs, mix, pour, put liners in muffin tins, cut veggies with his special knife. He is always welcome to look at the food I’m preparing and take part in age appropriate ways.
My kids are 7,5,2 and 4 months. They love to mix and kneed and do just about anything I’ll let them do to help with dinner.
My boys are almost 8, 4, and 1. I let my oldest cut up some things, stir, add ingredients, my middle the same without the cutting, and the baby watches and has a snack.
My kids are 13 and 11 and they take turns assisting with dinner prep every night!

My kids are 8,4 and 2 and we cook together regularly. We are currently cooking a meal each week to go along with Five in a Row.
My son is 8 now but he’s been cracking my eggs (with one hand I might add) since he was 3. He loves making pancakes and crepes. 😉
My daughters are 2 and 4. I really want to get intentional about involving them more in the kitchen but I never realized how many annal tendencies I had until I had children 🙂 Yesterday I had Ava help me make cucumber sandwiches for a healthy snack. She spread the cream cheese and piled on the cucumbers after I cut them.
My children are 15, 11, and 8. I have been teaching my oldest how to cook certain meals to prepare him for adulthood, but I was really inspired by your baking school idea. I’ve been much more intentional with my daughter in learning basic kitchen skills, and when my youngest is mature enough, I’ll be intentional with him too!
My 8yo daughter can follow recipes fairly well. She makes pancakes and scrambled eggs regularly. My 3yo daughter will do anything I allow, mostly just stirring at this point, but she asked to learn how to make a boiled egg yesterday.
My kids are 13, 12, 10 and 8 and I have them help me with dinners and some baking. This giveaway is so fun! Thanks 🙂

My daughter is 5 and I do my best to have her help me with baking mainly just putting in the dry ingredients. This would be great to help me include her more in the cooking process.

My kids are 7, 5, and 3. Our oldest is slowly learning to do things for himself (sandwiches, toast, etc.).

Our kids are 9 & 7. We have had them helping in the kitchen for years. Now, the oldest is trying to teach her younger brother things she has learned in the kitchen. It is always a joy to have them baking & cooking with me.
I have a 5, a 3, and a 1. My 5 year old has been asking to get more involved in the kitchen lately, so we’ve been working on some carefully supervised skills. He was so proud when he cut his muffin in half with a knife this morning!
I have a 6, 4 and 4 month old. My two oldest low helping me in the kitchen. Measuring ingredients and pouring them into the bowls or pans are their favorite ways to help. Although stirring anything comes in as a close second. They help me make dinner almost every night and desserts are impossible for me to prepare on my own. I love their involvement and excitement to learn in the kitchen!
My girls are 4 and 2 and my 4 year old loves cutting, mixing and baking.

My kids are 8, 6 and 3. They love to help in the kitchen. My husband makes cinnamon rolls, pizza crust and bread, so they all like to sit and help him mix and roll. They help me wash vegetables and fruit too. Thanks! This sounds like it would be really fun to win!
I “liked” Raddish on FB and Simple Homeschool!
They are 11, 8, and 1. They all love to help as much as they can with baking and cooking. Sometimes the boys make dinner all by themselves for the family.

My kids are 7 and 3. Yesterday we made dough and sprinkled on toppings for a yummy pizza. We observed changes in the crust due to the yeast and how tomato sauce bakes more quickly on the bare pan than on the crust. Science, baby!
4, 2 and a wee one, lots of stirring and scooping….introducing sharp knives with the oldest…..my blessing for all to make delicious messes 🙂
I cook often and have involved our 3 year old starting when he was 1 year old. He has a learning tower and every time I cook he gets up there and helps out. He has his own cabinet in the kitchen with bowls and utensils. He adores cooking and even likes to watch cooking shows. We also have a home garden and he loves to pick the vegetables and then bring them inside to wash and cook with. We just had another baby a month ago and I have been looking for simple ways to entertain the 3 year old while we are in the house. This would be ideal! I have been working with him at home as far as learning goes and this year I am looking for more creative ways to get him excited about the learning process. Raddish would be the perfect way to inspire him (he is a picky eater) and make learning fun.

8, 5 and we chop veggies together (and my five-year-old always scrambles the breakfast eggs)
My son is almost 5 and he loves chopping veggies with our huge knife!!! It makes me a tad nervous!
My daughter is 2 and her favourite place in the kitchen is the fridge, pulling out the contents and spreading them out around the house. The spice rack is her 2nd favourite spot. She enjoys mixing up spices and tasting them. Last night she had a spoonful of cinnamon! Yikes!
It’d be wonderful to have new ideas on how to get them more involved in the cooking department. I could use the help!! 🙂
My kids are 15, 12, 5 and 2. The younger ones like to help every chance they get, especially when the electric mixer is involved. The older boys, especially my 12 year old, will cook when their help is needed. My 12 year old Kieran really likes making eggs in the morning… My 5 year old loves helping chop veggies!
I have two girls ages 6 and 10, and two boys ages 9 and 13. They love to cook, bake, etc. This would be a wonderful blessing to win.
Just “like” Raddish and Simple Homeschool on Facebook:)
My kids are 4, 2, and 8 months. They love to dump and stir.

Our son is 4.75 years old. He helps me with grocery shopping, making selections for meals, setting the table, and he’s learning to help with baking. Sometimes he gets really interested, and I grab those moments and run with them! I’ve also starting checking out recipes for making goop and gak and things like that online and we can only play with it IF he helps “read” the recipe and make it. 🙂 Great motivation for a boy who loves his messy goo!

Brett Elizabeth Spore’s latest post: Potatoes!!!!
Hello!!! My kids ❤️ to cook and help in the kitchen. My oldest, Tabby, who is five loves cooking anything from breakfast to dessert. My oldest son, Parker (4), always wants to help doing anything in the kitchen and my youngest, Eli’s (just shy of 2) favorite thing to do in the kitchen is unload the dishwasher. My kids would love this!!!
My children are 9, 6, and 2. They love to help out in the kitchen. Unfortunately we have a very small kitchen so they take turns on who’s day it is to be my kitchen helper. They each get to help out with cooking or doing dishes and we’re not bumping into each other. We especially love baking and it really helps them with their fractions!
Wow, this sounds wonderful! I have 6 children – 9, 7, 5, 4, 2, 8mo – and I try to offload every task I can, but it’s difficult to keep an eye on so many at the same time. So it’s slllooowww goings. This sounds perfect for us! Thanks for the opportunity and recommendation! 🙂
My kids are 2,4, and 6. They get to add ingredients while I am baking, things like cookies and banana bread. They especially love doing the eggs 🙂 My six year old just started doing some things on stove with me like pancakes and toad in a hole, but the heat still makes her nervous.
Our children are 8,6,3 and they started out when they were tiny just unloading the silverware from the dishwasher. Then they start pouring ingredients in as mom and dad cook, then they mix and stir, etc. Having a little one standing on a step stool in the kitchen is a joy…a messy joy.
My children ages are 8 yr old, 4 yr old, and Twins that are 2 yrs old.
My oldest is very helpful in the kitchen, He loves to help with breakfast and is very good in the kitchen.
The 4 yr old is still learning how to measure dry ingredients without making a huge mess.
My son is four years old and loves to cook. He has his own appropriately sized tools and a tower to stand in, and he’s quite an expert egg cracker. We cook or bake together every day! 🙂
I like Simple Homeschool and Raddish on Facebook!
My kids are 8, 5, and 1. The oldest loves making dinner once a week (with supervision). The 5 year old helps mix our baking projects and the one year old helps with washing dishes.
I have four boys, ages 15, 12, 9, and 3. The three year old absolutely LOVES helping in the kitchen….whatever I will let him do. The nine year old enjoys it too. I’d love to have some guidance in getting them all more involved!
My kids are 17, 15, 14, 12, 11 & 11. I have them all help with menu planning, meal prep, cooking and clean up afterwards 🙂
Liked on Facebook 🙂
My kids are 9 and 6. I used to bake more with my kids, but have found it challenging lately. This would be a great way to get us back into it!!!
I “liked” both Radish and Simple Homeschool on FB
My kids are 6 and 9. They help meal plan, grocery shop, cut, mix and make messes in the kitchen.
Hi I would love to win this package, because my 4 year old and 2 year old LOVE helping out any way they possibly can. I also love cooking , baking, anything to do with food. They have taken on my passion it is fun to get to share it all together! Meal prep time is the time of the day they love the most!
Our children are 4.5 and 2.5 and they both love to help out sauteing, stirring, mixing, and cutting with a vegatable crinkle cutter. Fridays are our Baking Day.
Ok so I realize this isn’t the real answer to the question you asked, but I have to say I’m really excited about this! After reading Jamie’s description of her invitation to baking class for her kids I knew I wanted to incorporate a cooking “class” more intentionally into our homeschool. However I had a hard time finding resources that I really loved. Radish looks awesome!
And I liked both SH and Radish on FB.
kids are 8, 5, and 1…we’ve started making bento style lunches together!

my son is 10yrs old. i try to envolve him in cooking to get him to eat healthier.
My daughter is 4 and loves everything about cooking. I always try and let her be as involved as she wants which means she pulls up a chair and jumps right in to help whenever I am in the kitchen.
I also liked Raddish and Simple Homeschool on Facebook.
My kids are 16, 13 and 11. I have them chop veggies all the way up to preparing the whole meal.
I have one daughter, 8. She helps me measure, mix, stir and pour while preparing meals or baking.
My kids are 9,8,6, and 3! They all love to help bake, and I’ve been trying to make it a point to involve them more in making lunch every day.

My daughter is 6 1/2 and we LOVE working together in the kitchen! So long as I’m not working directly over the stovetop, she’s welcome to help me in the kitchen with stirring, measuring, pouring, washing dishes and any other kid appropriate activity.
I have a 3.5 and a 5.5 year old. We love baking cookies and brownies together so far!
I liked both on Facebook!
My kids are 6 and 4, and they both love to throw in all the ingredients and help mix while baking. I’d love to get them a little more interested and involved in cooking.
I’ve *liked* both on facebook!
My seven year old has been involved in the kitchen since about the time he could walk. Sometimes he helps me with what I’m cooking or baking, and sometimes he comes up with his own recipes. We love spending time in the kitchen together 🙂
I have an almost 8 year old girl, a 6 year old boy, a 4 year old girl, an almost 2 year old girl, and a 2 week old girl. I try to let my children help make breakfast, lunch, and dinner and bake treats when I do those things. I let them add the ingredients, stir, count, and figure out measurements if we’re doubling a recipe.
The children are 6, 4, 2, 1. The oldest 3 like to help stir, measure & pour while the youngest likes to watch from the highchair with spoon in hand 🙂
My daughter is now 7 but has been a part of the kitchen magic from a very early age. We all enjoy cooking and creating together in the kitchen. She has even tried her hand at creating her own cakes from scratch…no recipe but the right ingredients. Reddish Kids is right up her alley!
Just liked Simple Homeschool and already a fan of Reddish. Thanks!
My kids are 12, 10, 7, and 3. Each one has a night that they help with dinner and I invite them to help me bake as well.

I have an 8 and 5 year old and we love baking together!
I have a son who’s 9, and a daughter who’s 6. My son is more interested in cooking then my daughter, but they both like to help! We are new to homeschool, and we’ve decided it’s much more exciting do all of our work in the kitchen! From science experiments, and Math to reading and writing! It can all be done with cooking ! They would love to receive this giveaway and get creative! It may encourage their minds to go outside the easy bake oven!
I have 2 boys , 9 and 10 year old. My daughter is 5. I have just starting having my kids help in the kitchen. My oldest is really good about reading the recipe and following it through. The other two help with more direction.
My girls, 9 & 7, both love helping me with recipes and making up their own “concoctions”.
Awesome giveaway! My kids are 4 and 7. I have the older read the recipe. The kids gather ingredients and tools, and dump into the bowl. They have learned to operate the mixer. We mostly bake together, but hope to do more cooking this year.
I “like” Raddish and Simple Homeschool on Facebook. Thank you for the chance to win!
My 6 year old measures, adds ingredients and stirs while my 3 year old retrieves ingredients and utensils and puts odds and ends in the trash; my 3 month old just lays there and coos.
I have two girls – 10 and 8. they love to bake with me or chop veggies for soups/salads:)

I have an 11yo and a 9yo. They help occasionally in the kitchen with food prep, setting the table, and cleaning up. I’d love to get them more involved!
Hi, I have a 9 year old daughter, an 8 year old son and a 2 year old baby boy who are willing to try anything in the kitchen… this is our second year of homeschooling. We learn, fall, raise again every day, and we would lllllove to win your curriculum!! We have never won a “treasure” as yours!!
thank you, thank you, thank you for teaching us, too!
Sincerely, Beata Gergely
My kids are 1,3,5,7&9. The 9&7 y/o girls can cook an bake on their own while the younger ones help measure & add ingredients. The 1 y/o just empties my cupboards 🙂
Sorry…liked both on FB
My kids are 4 & 6! They assist me in the kitchen all the time and my 6 year old son even packs breakfast picnics and makes meals for us by himself. Please pick us. Pretty please.
My daughter is 7 and loves baking; cake & cupcake decorating to be more specific! I encourage her passion by looking for new recipes for her to try.
I have three boys 7,6 and 2 and they love to help in the kitchen usually when we bake or make pizza on Friday nights.
We have a 5 year old and she helps by reading the directions, measuring, pouring and mixing the ingredients.
My 9 year old has asked to learn how to cook this year. This kit would be the perfect thing for her!
My kids are 14, 11, 7, 2, and 2. My 14yo dd is adept at just about anyhong in the kitchen. her latest specialty is making smoothies–yum! The 11yo ds has altered recipes and written up recipe cards for himself. Most recently, the 7yo dd does a lot of baking. When she wants help, I sit at the table and read the recipe to her while she does almost everything else. The twins like to join in with whatever anyone will let them do!
8 and 5. we love working together in the kitchen. they love to play “chopped”
i like radish on facebook
i like simple homeschool on facebook
My kids are 3, 5, 9. I let them cut up bell peppers that need to be chopped by using a butter knife for the younger ones and a real knife for our 9 year old.
I have two girls, 7 and 4. They LOVE to help in the kitchen but I struggle with knowing what they can and can’t handle and in being slowed down, especially around dinner time. An actual curriculum as part of our day would be awesome.
I like both pages on Facebook.
My kids are 18, 14 and 12 – when they were younger, they helped stir, measure and grab ingredients, now that they are older, they can make family meals all on their own 🙂
I liked both pages on facebook. Thank you!
My kids are 5 & 8 and love to chop and stir fry, grind spices. But they want to do more than I’ve figured out how to do. Would love this giveaway to help make that happen.
Kids 12,8,&7. Help in preparing (sometimes on their own), cleanup. and of course they love baking!
My kiddos are 4 and 17 months. I include my oldest in the cooking fun by allowing her to pour in ingredients to mixes, stir, decorate her own cakes, etc. My 17 month old just helps with the eating end of things. 🙂
My kids and 7, 5, 4, and 2. They love to help me in the kitchen no matter what I am working on, dishes, canning, cooking, baking, saucing, jucing… Thankyou for thischance 🙂
My kids are 5 and 3 and they help me pour, stir and measure.
My kids are 7 and 4. They help make their lunch most days.
My kids are 5, almost 4 and 1. They help me stir, measure ingredients, and set and clear the table.
My son is 3 and he helps with dumping in ingredients and stirring. He loves to make pancakes with us!
My kids are 9 and 3. I know I don’t let them help near as much as I should ! They do a little measuring, a little stirring, setting the table….I need to let them help more!
My daughter is 6 and we cook everyday as part of her schooling! Whether learning reading, measurements, fractions, or just having fun, she is happy to be included in the helping!! A sense of belonging and accomplishment and of course seeing the smile on her face is priceless!
I have liked both on fb.
I involve my son when I cook. He helps with gathering the ingredients, kitchen tools and the food and helps me prepare the meal.
I Liked Raddish and Simple Homeschool on fb!
My boys are 7, 4, and 1. The older 2 love to help cook. My 4 year old works the Kitchenaid, pours in ingredients, and peels vegetables. My 7 year old is just learning to chop and is getting better at scooping & leveling flour. All 3 are happy to help taste! They also set the table, find ingredients in the fridge & pantry, and look through cookbooks & magazines to find recipe ideas. I love to cook and it’s so fun to involve them in it!
Hi my name is Colleen. My kids are Nicole and Nathan. They are 11 and 14. Nicole is self motivated and loves to chop! So I get her to help with that. She loves the kitchen already Nathan not quite so much but I let him help when were having something he especially likes. That is more motivation for him.
My children range in age from 3-17, and they all help cook. I choose a kitchen helper every afternoon to help make supper. They learn so much that way!
My kids are 3 and 4. The 4 year old is great at making eggs!
I try to include DD in the process of cooking, but I have to admit, I’m not terribly good at slowing down to a pace that’s good for her to be able to help. I want to teach her more kitchen skills, it’s just hard when I have soooo much to get done and so little time to do it all!

Mine are 14, 12, 12, 10, 7, 5, 2, and not quite born yet. They love to help me in the kitchen, and the older ones make simple meals for us all sometimes. We love new fun things to do in the kitchen. This giveaway would be fun for us!

My girls are 9 and 7 and my 9 year old has been begging met to let her start helping in the kitchen but I’ve been too scared :/
She would love this since it’s kid-friendly!
My kids are 5 and 3 they love to do everything in the kitchen. When I am in the kitchen so are they. They help me load the dish washer, dry dishes, and wipe off table and countertops. But most of all the love to cook from mixing ingredients to licking the spoon my kids are doing it.
My daughter is six and loves helping in the kitchen. She sets the step stool next to me and helps cook dinner. She’s really into chicken noodle soup lately. 🙂
Ages 5,2,1 and they help mix and use the food mil. Wash produce and cut veggies and set the table.
My boys are 9 and 3. My 9 year old LOVES to help with anything in the kitchen, even doing the dishes!! My 3 year old helps with dumping ingredients, cleaning up, etc. This is our first year to homeschool and I just know my 9 year old would love this curriculum, it looks like so much fun!
He is 13 and learning whole meal prep at this time. We love themes, this year we are cooking foods from each state!
My kiddos are 5 and 7. They help me by measuring, stirring and clean-up. They help me plan out our weekly menus with things they are interested or enjoy cooking. We love cooking together!!
My son is 3 and loves to help with every part of cooking, mixing, measuring, picking ingredients.
My children are 6 and 1. They help mix, measure, pour and the oldest cuts fruits.
Kimber's Navy Family
We have four boys: a 6 year old, 3 year old twins, and an infant. Our 6-year old loves to cook! He chops veggies for me, stirs and mixes, washes dishes, measures ingredients, and is excellent and helping clean up! I love cooking with our 3-year olds. We use this as one-on-one time. Since they do a lot of things together, cooking with them individually is a lot of fun. They love making quesadillas, helping with pancakes, scrambled eggs… And all of them LOVE helping me make cookies. 🙂 Our infant often helps me cook and do the dishes from our Tula baby carrier. I would love to win this curriculum! It would help us do more of what we love doing together– cooking together, eating meals together, and learning together!

My children are 10, 7, and 6. They love to help in the kitchen, mostly with measuring and stirring; sometimes they like to help peel and slice and add seasonings.
I have five kids, and a high school exchange student, currently. They are 15, 12, 10, 8, 6 and 4. I have to say I found this post at a great time. I was just thinking that I did a really great job teaching my older kids skills in the kitchen, but the younger ones, I haven’t done so much with. My older one, especially, takes care of many lunches, and sometimes dinner too. I would love something like Raddish, to help me organize and implement a plan for the younger kids!
I have “liked” both Raddish and Simple Homeschool!
would LOVE this. boys are 13,11 and 9 and could use a fun way to learn to be self sufficient…they have many challenges, and learning self help skills is crucial!
Ours are 5 and 3. They help with breakfast and dinner prep. And our oldest is now our “official” dish washer!
My girls are 6,4,3, and 1. The older ones all measure dry ingredients, stir, crack eggs. Run the mixer, and are learning to cut up fruit and veggies with their kid knives. The baby is into throwing things in the trash, so she gets to help do that when needed!
I have two teenagers and a 9yo daughter. I love to have them work with me on the kitchen with fun “project” foods for homeschool, or help make some of their favorite recipes.

Jenny’s latest post: September
My girls are 11, 8 and 11 months. The older two love to cook. They are responsible for one dinner a week. Planning, grocery list and cooking. With me very close by guiding them. They are so proud!!
My kids are 9 and 11 and they each have the job of planning and making a hot breakfast for the family a couple of days each week. That small responsibility has given them so much joy and confidence, I think it is time we expanded to preparing other meals.
Wow! What a fun curriculum! I said to myself, “Self, Wouldn’t it be so great if I won?”
Then I went to Facebook and LIKED both pages (just to top it off I started following them on Pinterest too…).
I have six children, ages 15, 13, 13, 7, 4, and 2. We spend most of our time in the kitchen preparing meals, cleaning up, and doing science experiments. Everyone helps out and has a job to do to get a meal on the table. Being in the kitchen is being home for our family.
I am new to homeschooling. My oldest son is Asperger’s Syndrome/High Functioning Autistic. I am trying to teach him life skills along with the other things he needs for school. I think that this sounds like something he and I could really do and it would help us with us the younger children too. I have a 7 year old and a 15 month old, the baby can’t do much right now, but eat the food, but that sounds good enough to me. I am so glad found this.
I have 7, 8, 9, year old. If I need a dessert I tell them to get busy. I just play sous chef. It’s made them very aware of the importance of fractions.
My daughter is almost three. She helps by counting, pouring, stirring–and even mincing! Inspired by Disney’s Princess and the Frog, she and her dad made gumbo. He proudly informed me that she minced almost all the mushrooms on her own.
I homeschool our 4 kids, ages 9, 8, 6, and 5. I have my boys making breakfast this year each morning, and the girls help set the table and help me with lunch.
My kids are 9 and 11 and they plan and prepare one meal every week. Both love to be in the kitchen.
Liked both on Facebook!
I have 6 kids from ages 19 to 16 months….I believe in getting them involved in the kitchen very early – my 4 year old loves to help stir, open cans, get things, dump in the bowl, etc. Up to the older ones who can now completely prepare a meal, cookies, and my son who canned pickle relish this summer – now cleaning up the mess – that they havent figured out so much 🙂
