Welcome to Kater4Kidz

My name is Mary Harte and I, along with my valued team run Kater4kidz Cookery and Nutrition Academy.  In operation since 2010, we have worked with thousands of children in our own training school and all over the country.

Our mission at kater4Kidz is to educate and empower children and teenagers so they have the capacity to cook for themselves.  The habits and skills they develop in childhood stay with them throughout their lives and are an investment in their future health.

The skills they learn enable them (and their parents) to make Homemade Food using Real Ingredients.  Children are never too young to start learning, to lend a helping hand and to practice the cookery and kitchen skills they will need in the future.

We also believe in balance, so along with our formal cookery programmes we have some novelty programmes for those times in the year when the rules are relaxed and it is ok to hit the treats.

Using our easy to follow programmes, you can support and encourage your child to be confident and independent in the kitchen and ensure they have the capacity to cook for themselves and their families in the future.

  • Follow the lessons at a time when you can all relax and enjoy the process – not to be tried on a Tuesday afternoon when you have to taxi to three different destinations, all for the same time!  
  • Move through them at your child’s pace.
  • Enjoy the bonus of having your lunch\dinner cooked for you.
  • Watch your child advance and grow in confidence.

This Benjamin Franklin quote sums up our philosophy:

Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn
