Cooking Matters by Share our Strength

Cooking Matters

Cooking Matters is a program of Share our Strength that inspires parents and caregivers of young children to make healthy, affordable food choices for their families. Check out these resources for quick, delicious meals on a budget, tips for feeding young kids, and how to make healthy meals work for your family.

We have a ton of great video content that you are more than welcome to share. Head to the Cooking Matters YouTube channel (linked below) to see a large bank of video resources including:

– The Tips for Feeding Kids series features real families and the strategies they use to feed their little ones and overcome common feeding challenges.

– What’s On Your Plate shows five families from a variety of cultural backgrounds and foodways, and how they use MyPlate principles to make healthy eating work for their families and favorite meals.

– The Kitchen Finds series and the Meal Prep Made Easy series offer great time- and money-saving tips for stretching your food resources and feeding your family throughout the week.

– And lots more!

You can also engage with our Facebook and Instagram pages! We have created a Spanish Facebook page and a Spanish Instagram page where we offer content specific to the Spanish-speaking audience.

Finally, check out our new Cooking Matters website at! We have kid-specific handouts that include fun activities and recipes for caregivers to use with young kids. We also offer free, easy-to-use lesson plans for leading activities in your community. Both of these resources are linked below. Additionally, we have over 200 recipes that are low-cost, healthy, delicious, and something the whole family can enjoy.
