Our story – food meets fun makes fabulous

Big tastes made easy

Hello. We’re Philippa and Simon, founders of Little Cook Box. We started Little Cook Box because, as busy parents, we were struggling to feed our two boys healthy, delicious and nutritious food. The ‘old favourites’ were getting very stale and we found ourselves opening the fridge time and again in search of inspiration that simply wasn’t there.

Our solution was children’s meal kits specially designed for kids aged 5 to 11 years old. Delivered weekly, each of our meal kits can be cooked in 20 to 30 minutes, making it quick and easy to get a home cooked, healthy and yummy meal in children’s tummies. All our ingredients come pre-chopped, peeled and washed in one simple tray, so there’s no time wasted thinking up a recipe, going to the supermarket and preparing the ingredients.

We believe that the joy of mealtimes is much more than the just the eating. Spending time with your children and teaching them how to cook can be great fun, and it will equip them with the practical cooking skills that will prove invaluable in later life. By introducing them to new flavours, textures and foods, we can help our children to form better, healthier eating habits.

Our values are happy values

Happy kids. We’re all for giving kids what they want; something yummy to eat, some extra time spent with mum or dad, a new fun activity, and something special that’s delivered just for them every week.

Happy parents. We’ve all experienced the ‘witching hour’ – that chaotic time of day when the kids are home from school and it’s nearly dinner time! Then there’s the daily struggle to find something that they’ll eat from the depths of your kitchen cupboards.

Our meal kits give you a little more time and head space to deal with the other million and one things on your plate, if you pardon the pun.

Happy planet. Our meal kits have just the right quantities of ingredients for one evening meal for one child. So, no more buying a whole veggie, throwing most of it away and feeling guilty. And our packaging has been designed to be easily recycled…if it’s not used as a play kitchen, for den building or the millions of other things kids love turning boxes into.

Happy futures. Every parent knows that learning is more engaging when you’re involved and having fun, so why not get children to take part in the cooking of their own meal? They’ll learn new skills and are much more likely to eat the food they’ve chosen, made and served.

Our chefs have developed recipes that are deliciously inspiring with a variety of colours, textures and flavours. Along with twists on traditional favourites like burgers and fishcakes, we’ve created ‘world taste’ dishes to broaden their palettes with meals like empanadas and calzone.

Ingredients, pure & simple

It surprised us too, but we discovered that the choice of good fresh food, with the right balance of popular tastes and nutritional content was lacking in the mainstream market for 5 to 11 year olds.

At the core of our ethos is the sourcing of the right ingredients. As local as possible, sustainable and unprocessed. Pure and simply delivered to you, ready to cook.

With careful attention given to portion size, quality, freshness, calories and nutrients, we’re proud to say that Little Cook Box meal kits will satisfy your child’s growing appetite.

Our super suppliers

We actively seek out suppliers that practice sustainable methods of production and, where possible, we buy from UK producers to minimize our carbon footprint. We believe it’s the only way to go.

All of us know it’s important to educate our children about their food and where it comes from, beyond the supermarkets. Take a moment to explore our blog pages where you’ll discover more about how the ingredients in our meal kits get from farm to fork.
