This summer, ChopChop Kids, publisher of ChopChop: The Fun Cooking Magazine for Families is leading a national healthy cooking campaign with its first online cooking club.

ChopChop is challenging families to master six essential recipes — one at a time — by joining the online cooking club free at chopchopcookingclub.org.

Each month, club members will receive a recipe challenge comprised of step-by-step instructions supplemented with basic cooking skills, food facts, family discussion prompts, and shopping tips. Families are invited to post a picture of their finished dish to chopchopcookingclub.org to earn a virtual badge for completing the challenge. Badges will celebrate different cooking skills learned in each recipe, such as whisking, measuring, roasting and grating. Club members are encouraged to complete all six challenges for a chance to win prizes from KitchenAid, OXO, and Le Creuset.

“We’re seeing a new generation of kids who lack fundamental cooking skills,” says Sally Sampson, ChopChop founder. “If you teach kids to cook real food, they’ll lead healthier lifestyles.” Read more about Sampson and Massachusetts-based Chop Chop Magazine in our December 2014 story.
