About this Kids Cooking Box

Membership to Raddish kids cooking club includes a monthly cooking kit with patch, a cooking tool, digital bonus recipes & activities, plus access to their online community to learn how other families use Raddish. With each kit, kids get hands-on edible education and learn key culinary skills, create new recipes, and learn about the country where their recipes originated from. Sign up for Raddish to get this month’s cooking kit now!
Each Raddish Kids box is curated around a country/theme and this box is all about Swedish Eats!
Inside the adorable raddish and kitchen tool print box is a cardboard envelope that contains the recipes, activities, and a patch plus a kitchen tool and if you signed up for a 6 or 12 month Raddish Kids susbcription, you’ll also get a free apron in your first box! This box included a pair of red silicone tongs as the featured kitchen tool.
The themed cardboard envelope folds out to reveal the patch (which can be added to the apron) along with three recipe cards (Swedish Meatballs, Nordic Cinnamon Buns, and Scandinavian Smorgasbord), ingredients shopping checklist, plus Swedish handicraft activities (paper dala horse & word search) and Table Talk cards which are conversation starters for the dinner table. (Example- one card says: If you could have dinner in another country, where would you go?)
The apron that’s included if you sign up for a 6 or 12 month subscription is really cute and kid-sized. I think it would fit a kid up to 13 years old. I had to tie the neck strap for my 3 year old daughter Emma and the strings went all the way around her lol but we worked it out and she loved wearing it! It’s made of a textured fabric in white and has the Raddish logo printed on front. The silicone tongs that are included in every Swedish Eats themed box are red and have a locking mechanism for easy storage. They seem pretty well made too!
Here’s my mini chef / kitchen helper / chief bowl stirrer – Emma!
For this box, we focused on making the Nordic Cinnamon Buns since they don’t require any egg or nut ingredients (FYI: Raddish does list substitute ingredients in the “Bonus Bites” section of their website to acommodate to food allergies and restrictions and says I can use an egg replacer for the meatballs recipe) and they’re what my kids wanted to make- meatballs versus cinnamon buns? Cinnamon buns are going to win every time lol! Above is a pic of all of the ingredients needed to make the cinnamon buns. I already had about half the ingredients so I didn’t have to buy too much stuff.
And here’s the ingredients list and instructions for the cinnamon buns. The steps are pretty straight-forward and easy to understand/follow.
First we had to make the dough–
Next we had to knead the dough!
This particular recipe requires that you knead the dough and let it rise- something I was not familiar with at all. Luckily, the back of the recipe card has directions on how to knead dough! It’s the “featured culinary skill” for this recipe.
Here’s what the dough looked like after we rolled it out.
…and added the melted butter all over….
Next mix up brown sugar and cinnamon and spread it all over the melted butter on the dough.
Emma was happy to help! We cook food boxes several nights a week and she always wants to help cook- especially stirring!
After those steps, you fold the dough in half and cut it into strips with a pizza cutter.
Then take the strips and twist and tie them into knots.
The dough has to set out for at least an hour or in the fridge overnight to rise.
Here’s what the dough looked like after it sat on the counter for an hour. I could definitely see lots of puffiness so I knew the dough had risen and was ready to bake!
Last step, bake in the oven!
…and the finished product sprinkled with a little powdered sugar!
Emma approved!! Yum! Yum!
What a fun box for kids! Not only are kids learning to cook, but they are also learning teamwork, following directions, and are learning about the country in which the recipe originated. My daughter loved helping to make (and eat!) these delicious buttery sugar cinnamon-y treats and together with her brother ate them all in one day- no joke! And…Emma asked me to make them again the next day- she started taking the ingredients back out of the pantry lol– they were that good! While you do have to purchase the ingredients for each recipe, I didn’t find the items to be particularly expensive and had several items already. Using the included ingredients shopping checklist is really helpful too. Priced at $20 per box with an annual subscription, I think this kids cooking box is really reasonably priced- the cards and cooking tool is high quality and you can tell lots of thought went into curating the activities and educational information. You can even make some of the recipes (for instance in this box- the meatballs) as part of what you cook for dinner to incorporate the recipes into your meal plan. Add a veggie and a starch like rice and you’re good to go! It’s also nice that they send a cooking tool in each month’s box. We used the included tongs to take the cinnamon buns off the pan and will surely use them for future recipes we cook. If your kids are curious about cooking, I highly recommend signing up for Raddish Kids! Use the coupon below to save some…dough. Pun intended! 🙂
Can I get still get this box?
Possibly. The theme of the box you’ll receive will be a surprise (you can’t choose) so it’s possible that you’ll get the Swedish Eats box. You’ll get a new themed box each month without duplicates to keep the cooking excitement going!
