Hestan Cue Makes it Easy to Get Kids Cooking

Making cool stuff is high on any kids’ to-do list, while making dinner is probably high on yours. You can accomplish both at the same time, and have fun together, when you bring your kiddo into the kitchen. There are so many benefits to cooking with kids of all ages. Not only is it a great opportunity to spend time together, but they'll also learn to embrace a world of nutritious food and be able to cook nourishing meals on their own.

With our video-guided recipes, kids, and even teenagers, love cooking on the Hestan Cue.

Got a picky eater on your hands?

Turns out kids are more apt to try new foods when they’ve helped create it. So if you want your broccoli-phobe to give the green trees another try, or if you want to introduce a whole new cuisine to the lineup, you’ll have much better odds of hearing “yum” instead of “yuck” if you invite your kiddo to pull up a stool and help you cook.

A Few Quick Tips to Cook with Your Kids

  • Set aside a few hours each week to cook together.
  • Let them pick their own recipe — they may surprise you by skipping grilled cheese and trying out the risotto.
  • Get them involved with the shopping by taking them to a local farmers' market.
  • For those not quite tall enough to reach the kitchen counters, pull up a stool or a chair for them to stand on.
  • Let the kids manage the cooking steps in the Hestan Cue app.
  • Don’t be afraid to omit a minor ingredient, if it’s something they don’t like.
  • Throw on an apron — you'll be glad you did.
  • Make it fun!
With every recipe, your kids will gain important cooking skills that they’ll use for the rest of their lives. They’ll learn to embrace new flavors, textures and ingredients, and they can even scroll through the app and pick out the recipes themselves. This gives them an even greater feeling of control, and our “family friendly” category is the perfect place to start. From French toast and quesadillas to grilled cheese sandwiches, it’s like a greatest hits of all their favorites. Best of all, when your kids have cooked through those familiar dishes, they’ll be ready to venture into a whole new world of food — and Hestan Cue will be there to help them, and you, every step of the way.  Using the hestan cue lets kids cook their own recipes
