Raddish Kids is a kids cooking subscription box for kids age 4-14+ delivered to your doorstep. The box of culinary fun will bring the whole family together in the kitchen and at the dinner table. This expert-created monthly cooking kit is also a wonderful educational tool mixing math, science, and cultural exploration through food. Learning has never been more fun (or delicious!).

Raddish Kids Unboxing by MealFinds
Raddish Kids cooking subscription box also makes a great GIFT for birthdays and holidays. You can send a single kids cooking box, a 6-month subscription, or a 12-month subscription and can even select your ship date during checkout (great for planning ahead!).
In addition, Raddish Kids can be used as a homeschooling tool and they have a ton of free resources on their site. These resources include cook-along video classes, easy recipes for kids, music playlists, downloadable activities, lesson plans, and other parent resources.
Pros: Overall, we felt that the Raddish kids cooking subscription box cards and activities were well designed, with cute and informative illustrations. Laminated cards are essential, in our opinion, because we all know that kids can be pretty messy in the kitchen. We liked the mise en place technique as it is really useful and important for kids to learn how to be organized in the kitchen.
The shopping list is helpful and most of the ingredients are pretty common and would be easy to find in your cabinet or at most grocery stores. Our tester kids absolutely loved all three recipes included, but the recipes weren’t so simple that they would be boring for adults.
The kids loved the carrot patch and I could see them looking forward to collecting them and learning how to sew them on their aprons. The spreader tool included was a good quality tool, but not something that we would use on a regular basis.
Raddish Kids Reviews: Seasonal and Holiday Kids Cooking Kits
We also love that Raddish Kids has seasonal/holiday-themed kits like this October box for Halloween – the Frightful Fiesta kids cooking kit! Your kids can whip up this scary Halloween Tex-Mex dinner featuring a “Creepy Corn Dip”, “Mummy Enchilada”, and a “Haunted Tres Leches Cake” for dessert. This dinner is sure to be spooky good!
Or what about this box for November? The Gourmet Gobble Thanksgiving kids cooking kit! With this kit, your kids can help make Thanksgiving dinner and dessert. It comes with Thanksgiving-themed recipes and activities. Your kids can make a Thanksgiving Vegetable Trio, Baked Mac & Cheese, and Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars for dessert. And think of how proud they will feel when they sit down to Thanksgiving dinner.
Cons: The Raddish kids cooking subscription box “Table Talk” activity cards were just ok and would love to see something more engaging or active. The theme was pretty cute but generic “spring”. A missed opportunity, though, was that the theme didn’t seem all that connected to the food or the seasonality of the ingredients. This could be difficult to do when shipping all over the world but would be nice.
Monthly Collectibles: Table Talk conversation starter cards + a colorful apron patch (apron included with 6 and 12-month subscriptions)
Quality Kitchen Tool: Exclusive cooking utensil designed for young chefs
3 Culinary Skill Lessons: Expert guides to develop safe and smart kitchen techniques

Bonus activities and resources online
If you have certain dietary restrictions Raddish posts dietary substitutions online via each kit’s “Bonus Bites” page. You’ll find ingredient recommendations for every Raddish recipe to accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free diets. They rarely use nuts in their recipes and if they do, they will be optional.
Plus, if you have more than one child you can pay an extra $5 per month and receive an additional culinary tool and apron patch, just purchase “Sibling Bundles” during checkout. You also have the opportunity to purchase an extra apron for $15 and a recipe binder to store all of your laminated recipes for $20.
Raddish Kids Reviews: Bottom Line
We loved the Raddish Kids cooking subscription box and would definitely order for our own child or as a gift. This kid’s cooking box is a great activity during at-home learning, over spring-break or summer vacation, or a great gift for that aspiring little chef!
The Holiday Raddish kids cooking kits are super fun and sure to bring joy during the Holiday Season. Be on the lookout for a spooky Halloween kit in October, a Thanksgiving kit in November, and a Christmas kit in December. These make great gifts too!
