Children's Cooking Television Shows...

  • 7

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.

Thanks!

  1. It isn't in the current lineup, but 'Chefs A Field, Kids on the Farm' might be viewed as a kids cooking show

    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).

    1. 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?

      1. 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!

        1. 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.

          1. I am working on it now!!!!

            1. KRCB, a PBS station in Sonoma County, runs kids' cooking shows on Sat from 4:30 to 6:00PM -- however, for the next few weeks they will be running pledge week programming:
