FoodFood launches 'K for Kids'

MUMBAI: A majority of kids don't know French fries come from potatoes! Or that ketchup is made from tomatoes. Many children even don't have a basic understanding of where food comes from. But if they are inspired to step in to the kitchen and cook a meal from start to finish, they will discover that some of their favorite foods come from fruits, vegetables and other "real" products.


K for Kids-- A brand new show especially created for kids’ launches on FOODFOOD, India’s No 1 food lifestyle channel, every Sunday, at 1.00 pm. An innovative cooking show, jointly with Kissan, is based on health and nutrition, created for the kids, by the kids and of the kids, in the age group of 7 to 10 years. The show will help children develop cooking skills, while demonstrating how to make easy, irresistible, delicious recipes. The show, anchored by Chef Shipra Khanna, the winner of MasterChef 2 India, will have a bunch of enthusiastic kids, each week, featuring different original recipes that children will learn to make themselves.

“This specially created kiddies’ show has taken a more mischievous and scientific approach to things. What sort of food makes you fat? What turns you  green? What is the nutritious value of leafy monsters? This is the sort of stuff that children thrive on, opening up their enquiring little minds. Hopefully, these kids, by the end of each episode, will know how to cook; and realize just how much fun cooking can actually be,” said SK Barua of FOODFOOD.”

Against the backdrop of a bright vivid cafe kitchen sets, Chef Shipra and her entourage, will cook up very, very simple food for those eternal fussy eaters. Imagine enjoying a yummy Ragi roll with a delicious fruit spread! In between cooking there’s going to be a lot of rhyming, singing and bizarre fun and masti.

While cooking for adults and with adults seems a passe on TV, cooking along with kids and for kids, their favorite food, seemed to be a lot more uplifting and encouraging. Sure there will be some precocious flourishes here and there, but that’s a part & parcel of a kid’s world!


Chef Shipra in her pristine and proper appearance is absolutely comfortable being surrounded by children. With her little battalion, voicing their likes and dislikes, she teaches them that simple art of making their favorite dishes. The focus on nutrition and healthy eating is laudable for sure, and there’s a lot for mothers too!

K for Kids is sure to help budding little chefs realize   just how much fun cooking can actually be. The show is bound to inspire your children to get in the kitchen.


Food television is growing in leaps and bounds. If you ever wondered what sort of TV shows would help children understand the importance of simple, healthy cooking…then K for Kids it is . The show is bound to inspire your children to get in the kitchen and while you watch your little ones perfect their skills, it’s hilarious out there!


Caution: No chopping, cutting & fire play!
