Sid & Nancy FAQs

Hopefully we’ve covered everything below, but please drop us an email if you have a question that is not answered here!

Sid & Nancy is for kids 4 to 14+!

Sid & Nancy is for children aged 4 to 14+! Young children ages 4 to 6 can enjoy working alongside an adult in the kitchen. Children and teenagers ages 7 to 12 can explore their culinary curiosity and take on an exciting role in preparing family meals. You will be the best judge of how much help your little cook will need but we believe in trusting kids to know their limits and to ask for help when they need it. We’ve heard from many families with teenagers aged 13+ who use S&N independently, although it depends on their level of skill and ambition. We’ve even known adults to use our recipes!
