Children's Cooking Television Shows...

Do any of you know of a cooking show for kids that airs on television? I am familiar with some online ones, but I am interested in ones that are actually broadcast.
It isn't in the current lineup, but 'Chefs A Field, Kids on the Farm' might be viewed as a kids cooking show
For the bigger list of CreateTV cooking shows see:
Some of these cooks have episodes with their kids. I've seen them on Lidia's. R Bayless's (teenage?) daughter fits well on his shows. Jacques Pepine has cooked with Caludine, both when she was a teen, and some recently (he's now a doting grandfather).
If you don't mind my asking, why do you need specifically a children's show? I'm sure that my very early exposure to the PBS greats, especially Julia, went a long way toward sparking my interest in cooking. I know I didn't understand half of what was going on but what greater early childhood cooking teacher could their be than dear, dear Julia?
Funny you should say that, rockycat. My girls (9 & 5) could watch food network all day long. Right now they're watching Ellie Krieger make some french toast that's stuffed with ricotta, sliced strawberries, and a few chocolate chips, then topped with strawberries. They've just announced they're making it tomorrow for breakfast!
I think if the kid wants to watch cooking shows, he/she will like the adult versions. I remember as a kid always wanting to watch Julia Child and several others. Pretty sure that as a kid I would have loved everyone on the food network if it had been around.
