This is our second month with Kidstir and so far we are enjoying it. Personally I do think this box is better suited for younger children than Mary, who is 9. Our last review was in September 2016, so it was a nice surprise to see a new one show up at the door.
Kidstir is a subscription box that allows kids to cook simple recipes with their parents’ help. Not only do kids get to make their own food but they will also learn about healthy foods while having fun.
Kidstir kits include shopping lists, step by step instructions for cooking, fun food pages to complete, kid sized tools and sometimes a few ingredients too. I do want to note that ingredients are not included in the box for the most part. In order to cook everything, you will need to buy those ingredients yourself. The box is more for the experience of learning to cook with your kids using kid friendly recipes.
Also with the Kidstir subscription, you’ll get to build your own cookbook from the recipe pages included in each box. Each month you’ll receive 3 recipes to cook plus utensils and fun pages to do together.
Inside the January 2017 Kidstir Box
Inside our January 2017 Kidstir box, we received 3 recipe cards, a grater, chopsticks, the cookbook to add our recipe cards to, fun pages and tags. The recipes for this month were Cheesy Broccoli Soup, Japanese Noodles and a dessert all made from scratch. I do like the fact that the recipes are made from complete scratch so kids can make healthy and tasty food without artificial ingredients in it.
Yet again, Kidstir has been was a fun kitchen adventure for us. It’s exciting to see what recipes you’ll make each month. It’s also wonderful to teach kids how to cook at a young age. Currently Kidstir comes in 1, 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions for $19.95 a month.
