Are you looking for gift ideas for the foodie kid in your life? This gift guide is EXACTLY what you need. I’ve found 55 kitchen and cooking gifts that will have your kids fighting to cook dinner (now, wouldn’t that be nice) or maybe picking up a new skill in all the inside time we’ve been getting in Lockdown.
You either have a foodie kid, or you don’t. Out of our four kids, we have 1 and 1/2 who are interested in being in the kitchen. My youngest daughter, however, was born to cook. The 1/2’er son of mine is very particular. He only likes making smoothies, frozen Popsicles and anything with egg.
*While I’m writing this, I just heard him tell his sister he’s going to make a smoothie. Boys are super predictable:)
