Foodstirs

If you missed out on that sold out free cooking subscription box from Raddish Kids, don’t sweat it: There’s more fun to be had in the kitchen. And if you’re like us, you’ve been stress baking and eating since the coronavirus outbreak started. Get the kids involved with Foodstirs Junk-Free Bakery’s baking mixes and kits while you’re both in self-isolation. The kits can be delivered to your home so you don’t have to worry about the grocery store.

This organic brand puts a healthy spin on childhood faves and popular confections. Think cupcakes, donuts, cake pops, cookie skillets and brownies—but with 25-50 percent less sugar, ethically-sourced ingredients. Don’t let that fool you, though: These treats are just as sweet, and totally sugar monster-approved.

There are a few ways to make a Foodstir’s dessert. You can follow a recipe (like this sugar cookie apple tart or these chocolate coconut oat monster bites) and buy the individual ingredients like cake mix in the online shop, or choose an all-inclusive baking kit for a tasty project they won’t forget (we love these adorable polar bear cupcakes and these Instaworthy unicorn pinwheel cookies). Mixes will cost you $5.99-8.99 each, while kits range from $20.99-40.

If the kids have a blast and you want to do it again, consider signing up for a one- or three-kit subscription. And if you’re looking for an organic snack for them while you bake, there are mini muffins, brownies, donuts and blondies for purchase on the site, too.
