Welcome to the Kids Can Cook Kitchen.  We have developed specific programs for your New Zealand  Kids that focus on easy to make, 
energy giving foods that feeds the body and mind.   We are pleased to introduce our two new programs - SUGAR - How much is in our food ? and DIABETES - What is it ?          -       You can view all of our programs at Videos 

Give your kids breakfast and they will eat for a day, teach them how to cook and they will eat for a lifetime - Chef Chris Fortune



In 2013 and 2014  we have traveled nationwide from Southland to the Far North, visiting over  40,000 young citizens of NZ in primary schools with our Kids Can Cook Kitchen and we are now pleased to introduce our Teens Can Cook Kitchen

We cater to Primary School, Colleges,  Intermediate and Secondary Schools and tailor our message to suit the age groups with younger classes focusing on fun and getting involved and older teens on what is in our food, fast food, sugar, 
energy drinks and healthy food options
