Here at Little Ankle Biters we’re big fans of healthy eating for children, so we were really excited to get a lovely looking package through the letterbox from Little Cooks Co.
Little Cooks Co is a monthly subscription cookery kit for children. Their mission is to help inspire children to love cooking, feel at home in the kitchen, and to eat new, healthy foods and flavours. I often find myself worrying about the snacks my children eat, so this is a very welcome solution! Every month you’ll get a new recipe through the post for a healthy snack to make at home with the kiddies. In the box you’ll find all the dry ingredients needed (things like almond butter don’t mail so well so you’ll need to grab those sort of bits). There’s also a recipe card for the snack, and an extra recipe for a healthy family meal you can try out too. All the ingredients are weighed out in individual bags, meaning no fuss and no food waste. Big thumbs up.
With Halloween approaching, our box was aptly for Spooky Spiders. The kit even contained black pipe cleaners for the legs, stick on eyes and fake spiders to decorate. Ingredients included things like; hazelnuts, puffed quinoa, puffed brown rice, buckwheat groats and raw cacao powder. Now, hands up, these ingredients aren’t usually in my cupboards, and that’s one of the things I really loved about these kits. The children loved smelling, tasting and feeling the new ingredients so as well as having lots of fun they learnt things at the same time. The recipe was easy to follow and the spider snacks looked amazing afterwards.
You can subscribe for a monthly kit over 3 or 6 months. Each box is £7.99, but you can get your first box for £5.99 (use code BOX1 at checkout). For more information and to subscribe, check out www.littlecooksco.co.uk.
This gets a gold star from Little Ankle Biters, it’s fun, healthy (all organic, all natural and no refined sugar) and convenient for busy parents who enjoy cooking with their kiddies.
