About

What’s Cooking with Kids is a Certified Green business devoted to educating a new generation of young eaters about eating in a way that is healthy for their bodies, the planet and community.  Our unique approach to teaching includes charitable events that motivate families to step up to the plate to use food & cooking as a means to help the less fortunate.  While we used to offer cooking classes and parties, our services are now focused on curriculum development, speaking engagements and consulting.

Michelle Stern, Owner of What’s Cooking with Kids and Author of The Whole Family Cookbook:
After a post-collegiate stint at studying primate mating behavior, I taught high school biology and environmental science for 5 years, ran What’s Cooking with Kids classes for 8 years, and then returned to the classroom for another 3 years of teaching. I am currently focused on consulting and curriculum development that integrates cooking with the common core state standards.  It is my goal that these educational cooking activities can be used by schools, homeschoolers, summer camps, after school programs and families who care about raising children with healthy eating habits and skills that last a lifetime.  Michelle Stern writes about cooking with kids on this site and sells the lesson plans on the What’s Cooking with Kids page at Teachers Pay Teachers.

    Hi, I am interested in starting childrens cooking classes. I have currently started healthy cooking demonstration and nutrition classes for adults but I have not had the response I had hoped for. I do have a few questions if you don’t mind. Should I charge by the month or day? How do you set up a schedule for classes?
