Hi, My name is Jodie Burkin
I set up “Whisk Kids” when my daughter was 6 months old.
She was an extremely fussy eater and I thought it might help her to join in cooking activities with other children her age.
I looked for cooking based baby and toddler classes on the net, but couldn’t find anything suitable, so I decided to set up my own.
I began running cooking classes for ages 6m – 4yrs, with an emphasis on sensory exploration, growing a child’s confidence around food and trying new things.
A huge part of a child’s development is learning about processes, cause and effect, developing fine motor skills, recognising smells, tastes and textures etc
Cooking with your child is an amazing way to help them develop in these areas, whilst spending quality time bonding with them.
Plus, if you have a fussy eater like my little girl, involving them in the cooking process makes them much more eager and likely to try the final product!
That’s not always guaranteed, but more likely, believe me!
Soon my cooking classes grew into running Children’s Birthday Parties as well as providing activities for events and summer fetes.
The little kids loved having something fun and interactive to do at a party. The bigger kids love being able to go home from a party, having something they’ve made and are proud to show off!
Party themes have covered a wide range, including Messy food play, Moana themed biscuits, Dinosaur dirt Cheesecakes and many more!
Then, a lot of parents said they’d love to bake more at home with their Kids, however they struggled to think up recipes or know how much of each ingredient to use.
That’s when i thought about producing a range of Baking Kits. A perfect solution for busy parents and an exciting activity for the little ones to do at home.
The Kits were immediately a huge success, I sold them at the end of my cooking classes and at local fetes / markets.
I now produce baking kits on a larger scale and to a wider market.
Offering one off purchases or monthly subscriptions for those who want a fun baking kit delivered through the letterbox every month.
We can also offer special discounts for wholesale buyers (please contact me if you are interested in wholesale)
The kits include all the dry ingredients you will need for the recipe, as well as a recipe card and a fun activity pack for your child to do while the product is baking!
