You’ve heard of the cooking boxes doing the rounds for us grown ups, but move over, complicated recipes-there’s a new cook box in town-and it’s for the children.
That’s right-you can now let the kids take over the kitchen and cook themselves dinner, with Little Cook box!
Who are Little Cook box?
Philippa and Simon, founders of Little Cook Box, started the company because, as busy parents, they were struggling to feed their two boys healthy, delicious and nutritious food. The ‘old favourites’ were getting very stale and they found themselves opening the fridge time and again in search of inspiration that simply wasn’t there.
Their solution was children’s meal kits specially designed for kids aged 5 to 11 years old. Delivered weekly, each of the meal kits can be cooked in 20 to 30 minutes, making it quick and easy to get a home cooked, healthy and yummy meal in children’s tummies. All of the ingredients come pre-chopped, peeled and washed in one simple tray, so there’s no time wasted thinking up a recipe, going to the supermarket and preparing the ingredients.
Phillipa and Simon believe that the joy of mealtimes is much more than the just the eating. Spending time with your children and teaching them how to cook can be great fun, and it will equip them with the practical cooking skills that will prove invaluable in later life. By introducing them to new flavours, textures and foods, we can help our children to form better, healthier eating habits.
