Kids Cook Real FoodColumbus, OH
Katie Kimball is a blogger, former teacher, and mom of 4 kids who founded the Kids Cook Real Food eCourse. She started her online life at her blog, Kitchen Stewardship, where she helps families stay healthy without going crazy and has 8 published cookbooks. Katie wanted to create cooking classes for kids to help parents get a little help in the kitchen, build life skills, and hopefully even get some kids to eat vegetables. But through her work and research she realized that teaching kids to cook is the best way to show kids that they matter and can make a difference in the world. She believes if every child in America was taught to cook, we would smash statistics on childhood obesity, depression, behavior disorders and more.
As a national voice of healthy kids cooking online and through television and print coverage (Fox 17 Grand Rapids, Fox 2 Detroit, First for Women magazine and more), Katie shares strategies for parents to inspire their kids to learn to cook, increase healthy foods (even for selective eaters), and build connection, confidence and creativity for the whole family, all around real food and cooking. Stop by her booth for an assessment of what your children could be expected to do in the kitchen a practical tips to get started right away!
