“Here is an intersectional moment where health, self-discovery, food, helping families, and kids getting the most out of life all came together. We’re very excited to further explore the cooking and food space, and to do it with a partner that also champions kids’ health and growth.”

GoNoodle is partnering with Cooking Matters, a campaign helping end childhood hunger by inspiring families to make healthy and affordable food choices, to launch a new series called Kids in the Kitchen. The series will star two rising “kidpreneurs” with a master chef, creating easy-to-make, healthy, and affordable recipes that will get kids excited about exploring the kitchen and their relationship with food.
“This partnership immediately made a lot of sense for both of us,” says KC Estenson, CEO of GoNoodle. “Here is an intersectional moment where health, self-discovery, food, helping families, and kids getting the most out of life all came together. We’re very excited to further explore the cooking and food space, and to do it with a partner that also champions kids’ health and growth.”
Kids in the Kitchen will feature award-winning celebrity Chef King Phojanakong alongside eight year-old influencer, Sparkle, and her little sister Star, who is four. Together, they’ll be making four meals across four episodes airing on Fridays starting October 29th, and continuing into November on the 5th, 12th, and 19th. Each episode will feature a different meal, a breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. Each meal will offer healthy options and ways to engage and inspire kids’ passions for cooking and baking.
“We are excited to partner with GoNoodle to reach more families with fun and engaging content about ways to make affordable and healthy meals,” said Jessica Caouette, MS, RDN, LDN, Senior Manager of Content at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the Cooking Matters campaign. “Together, we are creating a movement to change the way our society values and prioritizes healthy eating and food skills education so all kids learn good eating habits – on a budget”.
Each video will also be accompanied with a recipe so families can follow along at home and recreate Chef Phojanakong, Sparkle, and Stars’ creations. In addition, families and teachers will be able to find a new blog on the Chowtown channel highlighting various recipe additions to each of the videos, and fun, healthy eating and food prep tips from Chef Phojanakong.
