Our Services

Putting vegetables in sauces and making food fun is a great way to try and get the '5 a day' into our children (and ourselves!) Kids in the Kitchen is an Aberdeen based cooking school for children. Children will learn valuable life skills and have fun along the way. Our kitchen is in any village hall around Aberdeenshire and classes run on a rolling schedule.
What We Do

What We Do

I find if children have the opportunity to cook themselves, then they are more likely to try the results. By encouraging children to cook, we can then influence and shape the way they eat for life - as well as giving them skills they can use forever! I offer two avenues for your children to try cooking for themselves. The classes and parties are aimed at children aged 5-12 but I do work with older children too, as well as small groups of pre-schoolers.

Birthday Parties

Birthday Parties

Toad in the hole to not-too-spicy curries, and pavlova to sticky toffee pudding or delicious afternoon teas (with the full works of course),
I've got ideas for everyone >
Children will learn some science behind the cooking as well as measuring, counting and understanding the concept behind cooking from scratch. All you need is a village or community hall with a kitchen and we are good to go. Birthday parties start from £15 depending on the ingredients. Party bags start at £5 per child and they can include bowls, spoons, cookie cutters, aprons, chefs hats, all the utensils that your 'mini chef' can use to try the recipes again!

Children's Cooking Classes

Children's Cooking Classes

I run cooking classes where children make the menu for that day, then all sit down together and enjoy it. We may do an experiment or two (erupting volcanoes are a favourite!) and food taste tests to try them with different types of food. They can all take copies of the recipes home with them so they can make them again in the future. I hold a rolling schedule of courses (starting from £15 per child) I – check out my Facebook page “Kids in the Kitchen Aberdeen” for more details.

Our Story

Our Story

As a Mum of two young children, I know how important it is for them to eat good, healthy, home-cooked food. I really want to share some of my recipes and ideas with other families and inspire children to give new foods a try. With this in mind, I launched Kids in the Kitchen in 2016 offering both cooking classes and birthday parties. Growing up I was always in the kitchen with my Granny and my Mum and thoroughly enjoyed it so I've always encouraged my children join in too. I have been a mum for over eight years so I understand the challenges of being a busy parent and trying to get our children to eat! I have also got experience working with children and have full PVG disclosure. I help at my children's school every week across all the age groups doing various activities so I know first-hand how to get children motivated and engaged!
