Your Toddler Can Cook

Raddish makes tots useful in the kitchen

When Samantha Barnes founded mobile cooking school Kitchen Kid in 2006, her mission was to teach kids all over LA how to cook healthy meals. Now she's furthering that cause with Raddish, a monthly delivery service designed to get families cooking together. Each thematic box is inspired by seasonally relevant events (February's carries an Olympics theme) and includes three recipe guides with kid-friendly step-by-step instructions. There’s also a kitchen techniques guide, two relevant activities such as art projects and science experiments, a table talk card deck to prompt fun conversations at mealtime, and a Raddish iron-on patch for your child’s apron. They'll also email you a shopping list ahead of time, so you can be stocked with ingredients when the box arrives. Recipes include dishes like panzanella salad, homemade pizza with fresh toppings, and no-bake apple tart. Subscriptions start at $20 per month for 12 months. Add on a sibling box for $4 per month so each child gets his own set of materials. Sign up at raddishkids.com.
