This week has sort of unintentionally become “the Fleck family’s favorite subscription boxes for kids week” but I can’t help it, when I find something my kids really love I want to share it with all of you.
A few weeks ago we were sent a Raddish Kids box to try and we loved it so much that we’re purchasing a subscription (and if you know our budget, you know that is saying something). The story behind the company really intrigued me and I think the idea is a really unique take on subscription boxes for kids. Plus, their tagline of “kitchen. table. family” speaks to me as a parent.
If you aren’t familiar with Raddish box (rad dish, get it?) it’s a monthly themed box with recipes for families to make together, but more than that it gives parents tools to help give their kids a culinary education by:
- learning basic skills
- teaching culinary vocabulary
- fun activities (everything from science experiments to art projects to foodie games)
Plus, there’s a neat apron and cool monthly patches you can add to it each month, which I thought was a really thoughtful touch and Lucy thought was fantastic (she’s already asking me when she can earn another patch from Raddish).
All of my kids were excited about the box, from my two year old to my twelve year old, but it was an especially perfect fit for my daughter Lucy who wants to grow up and be the Pioneer Woman (right down to the horses, the basset hounds, and the fancy painted kitchen aid mixer).
In fact, Lucy seemed to connect so well with the concept of Raddish box and the ideas and recipes, that I think this is going to become a part of our kindergarten rhythm and be included in our weekly cooking day.
The recipes we’ve tried have been fun and fairly simple to make and delicious. I appreciate the convenience a grocery list emailed to subscribers a week ahead of the box’s ship date so you can have everything ready to go in your kitchen once your box arrives.
Each month the box is a different theme. We tired the Family Table box and the boxes shipping in February are Olympics themed which will feature Greek turkey burgers, a gold medal omelet, and a family kitchen Olympics.
I know there’s a science theme in March and a green box coming up in April, too.
All in all, we really enjoyed the Raddish Kids box and I thought it might be something some of you would be interested in, too. If you’d like to check them out, head to the Raddish Kids website. You should check out their Pinterest boards, too.
We’ve signed up for a subscription and I’ll update later how we’re enjoying it, but in the meantime I wanted to share this fun kids in the kitchen resource with all of you. I think your families will love the idea, too!
