Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

There's a lot of good video content on SPATULATTA, which is probably why it won a James Beard Award for Best Webcast in 2006 and why it was featured on PBS' Biz Kids a few years later. However, the kids' cooking site no longer appears updated; the most recent blog entry at the time of this review was in June, 2011. The written recipes and recipe videos are clear, creative, and definitely kid-friendly (but some of the videos may look a bit dated to kids, even if they are only a few years old). The site encourages kids to be healthy, to cook, and to understand where food comes from and how it's made. If Spatulatta was more consistently maintained and updated to include new videos and more interaction, including a better use of social media, it could be the cream of the crop of kids' cooking resources online.

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.
