Is It Any Good?
Fans of this popular cooking network will fall in love with the companion app, which provides the opportunity to make favorite recipes from the shows. Food Network Kitchen is clean, easy to navigate, and colorful. Much like the supermarket, be careful of visiting while hungry! There aren't any kid-centric videos, which is unfortunate, but there are a lot of recipes that are simple, no-bake, or otherwise kid-friendly. It's also nice to see healthy choices as well as more indulgent options. Families can engage around when to make healthier choices and when to go for something more fun. Thumbs up for the generous three-month free trial, which gives people plenty of time to determine the ongoing value. This one is a bit pricey over the long term, but otherwise it's a lovely cooking resource.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
