A subscription concept for every child in every age. Parents subscribe to a meal kit that is made to the specific child's age, skills and interests. The kit contains ready-to-make ingredients for one meal; nutritious, healthy and exact the energy the child need.


The recipes are secret to everybody, but carefully selected by master chefs. The kit is delivered where the children are; kindergarden or school. The kits are labelled with advanced id's that ensures full traceability and feedback, both ways. The child (or parents) can take pictures and share their experiences (using the ID) with peers, suppliers, school or others. The Id is also capable of measuring the environmental impact of the production, distribution and cooking of the meal, creating a positive competition amongst schools, peers or communities. The ingredients in the kit are of course from local producers, as long as quality demands are met.


The ingredients are fresh, in fact they have to be superfresh, containing no additives or anything else to conserve them. The kits should not be put away in the fridge for days (thats not fresh) and certainly not frozen. There's no problem doing that, as the kit don't have to be have a long supply chain and be put in a shelf at the store, waiting for some customer to pick it up. Fresh is king!


There will be a parent "behavioral" guide, ensuring parents don't interfere to much, are applauding and giving the right feedback to the child; all in the purpose of building self-confidence and inspire the child. Hence, the level of complexity is adjusted to the child's skill; for the smallest; using two ingredients for dessert, and more difficult for the eldest ones.


Theres must be rewards, at least once a month, both to inspire locally, but also regional and national for aiming for the best. In addition there should be a separate communication to the children, which their parents do not take part in. The children must be able to surprise their parents.


This concept is not for feeding a family, it is for the children. When the confidence and experiences are at a certain level, the meals can be prepared by the child, for the rest of the family.


Feedback to children should show how they are progressing; always positive and applauding variety. Feedback should describe what next level to achieve is, and what they can experience there, just to keep up motivation.


As the arenas for mastering are getting more and more scarce and self confidence are needed more than ever, making food and getting feedback from the ones around, are maybe the only arena left for everybody to be an appreciated, loved and applauded world master chef at any age:-)

Age of kids. The solutions to changing kids’ eating behaviors will vary depending on their age. What works for a toddler won’t necessarily fly for a teenager, although we suspect some concepts might be appropriate for all ages—even adults! Which age bracket does your concept address (tick all relevant boxes)?

  • Pre-school (Tots) 2-4
  • Elementary (Kids) 5-10
  • Middle school (Tweens) 11-13
  • High school (Teens) 14 -18
  • Young adults 18-21

Hurdles to success. Helping kids make smarter food choices comes with a variety of hurdles that have to be addressed in order for a design solution to be successful, which of these do you think that your Concept overcomes (tick all relevant boxes)?

  • Expense and Convenience
  • Peer Pressure
  • Lack of Knowledge

Great idea. It can work in schools, but I also see potential at home. A sbuscription for a years worth of dinnerkits, picked up at a certain time at your local store. That way parents can have fun cooking with their kids. Good intentions ('I should learn my kids how to cook') are then easily transformed into action.
