Amid coronavirus fears and school closings, parents are looking for ways to keep their kids busy. Many families are suddenly finding themselves trying to balance work with helping their kids keep up with school assignments. Kids culinary subscription kit Raddish Kids is lending a helping hand to families seeking fun, educational and entertaining activities for their children while schools are closed and extracurricular activities are restricted.

Raddish Kids (after giving away 10,000 free kits last Friday) is giving away 25,000 more free kits on Thursday, Mar. 19th at 9am PST.

Beginning today, families can visit Raddish to order their free kit and also access free content including an at-home cooking camp program, recipes your kids can make with pantry staples and additional learning extensions across science, geography, language arts, and more.

“As a working mom, I know firsthand the impact that school closures have on families,” said Raddish Kids Founder Samantha Barnes. “We hope these free kits are a helpful resource for parents and inspire family togetherness during this period of social distancing.”

The complimentary Raddish kit is called Swedish Eats and celebrates traditions and flavors from Sweden. Travel may be restricted right now, but kids can still explore the culture and traditions of other countries right from their own homes. The kit is geared towards children in elementary and middle grades and featured three laminated illustrated recipe guides for Swedish Meatballs, Scandinavian Smorgasbord and Nordic Cinnamon Buns. Additionally, each kit includes a kid-sized cooking tool, apron patch and fun learning activity. 

“The kitchen is the perfect place to cultivate academic skills like math, science, geography, culture, reading, among other subjects outside of the traditional classroom,” said Barnes who is a former educator as well as a mother who has home schooled her kids. “Our kits weave in these subjects alongside key culinary skills that nourish the mind, expand the palate and empower kids in the kitchen and beyond.”

To order a free kit, visit Raddish.
