Raddish Kids has been one of our bright spots the last few months! Monthly Subscription boxes have become a big thing for adults and kids, and honestly I think the kid options where they are activities are SO SMART. We tried out Raddish kids for a few months and I wanted to give you my opinion on it!
This Raddish Kids review is sponsored by Raddish; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Raddish Kids Review
Subsciption boxes are a great way to get kids a great gift or surprise that actually occupies them. I know for me, as a mom of 4 kids I don’t love buying my kids new things all the time, but I also want them exploring new things and staying busy.
Raddish is a monthly subscription box that delivers a culinary experience for kids to do with their parents. Basically you’re going to get a monthly kit with recipes, and fun gadgets to get your kids cooking and trying new things.
I am excited to give you my full review in this post, and help you decide if this is a good option for you.
Month 1 – What’s in the Kit?
We got our first Raddish Kids kit in the mail and the kids were so excited about their aprons. (the first month you get aprons, but then you need to keep them for the coming months!)
The kit also included recipes for each of my kids (3), some conversation starters for the table, an easy to grab ingredient list (this was amazing for me!), activity cards, and some collectible kitchen tools.
I loved that the recipes weren’t super involved, and they made it fun for kids, but also not a stressful experience for parents with the ingredient cards and such. We personally decided together to pick just one recipe that first day to make!
please note the ingredients ARE NOT included in the monthly kits!
The first recipe we cooked was galactic pancakes, and Avé was SO excited. Honestly, Avé is by far my pickiest eater, and normally wouldn’t even eat pancakes, so I was excited to have her help and hope she would eat them.
We grabbed the ingredient list and were able to shop right in the pantry for that first recipe, we got to cooking.
I will note – normally I would have all my kids help me, but at the time Walker had just turned 2, and my oldest is allergic to egg, so when raw egg is involved in the recipe many times I choose to do the activity with just Avé.
The kit came with fun star and moon silicone molds for the pancakes for each kid, and they were super easy to use. We put them on the skillet, filled them up with the batter we made from the recipe, and then let the pancakes do their cooking.
It was fun to talk with Avé about measurements, and the process of cooking while we were doing this, and she even informed me this was only the start of her food blog – HAHA!
Month 1 Thoughts
The kids all LOVED the end result of the recipe and overall the kit was so much fun to do with Avé. I loved that it was a fun, unique spin on a normal recipe that encouraged my super picky eater to try something new (and love it) and was overall a fun, simple activity for the kids!
I think that as kids get older this would be a really fun idea too for them to do a little more on their own. My kids love when they get to cook at school, so they thought this was just like a school activity.
The 3 recipes were totally stand alone, and make it easy to be something you can do 3 fully separate times during the month, kind of giving you more “bang for your buck” than some other monthly kits for kids!
Second month of Raddish Kids
Like I said – I wanted to try this for a couple of months to give a full review. (we actually did it for 6 full months, but I wasn’t about to photograph every month ha)
The second month of Raddish was just as great as the first! This month we got Jack in the kitchen with us for the cooking and the eating, and we made Dulce De Leche Cookies.
I was a bit timid on this because I was pretty sure the kids would find them awful with how picky they are, but the process of cooking was super fun.
The kids loved learning about measurements, and the cookie scoops were perfect for them to scoop and get the dough off without touching it!
Once they were done I realized I was so wrong – everyone inhaled the cookies, us, the kids, and even grandma and grandpa.
I think that was a huge indicator on how great this kit was because although I want my kids in the kitchen cooking, it was also really fun finding a new recipe that we will continue to make.
My Overall Thoughts
If cooking with your kids is your thing, or even something you would like to introduce more I think this is a great idea! It is a great way to get kids tools that are perfect for them, and safe for them to use, while you incorporate new foods into your kids diets.
For me I have realized that giving my kids (especially Avé) some control while cooking means she drops some control on eating.
It isn’t a super cheep subsciption box idea, so if you are interested in signing up I have told many people to maybe use it as a gift idea for Grandma and Grandpa for birthdays or Christmas. One thing to remember is that it is a great group gift if you have many kids, so take that into account on price.
Overall I would definitely have continued our subscription but we were welcoming that 4th baby and it wasn’t something I had time for. Remember that when you are doing this you are likely going to need to be hands on, so be ready to make the time monthly to do it with your kids.
