Cooking For Kids with Luis is an Australian television cooking show directed towards preschoolers, originally broadcast on Nick Jr. Australia in 2004. The series made its United States debut on Noggin on 26 September 2005.[3]


A child named Luis prepares, cooks and shares some of his favorite dishes, including scrambled eggs, tortillas, dumplings and Guatemalan cheesecake.


Twenty episodes of the series were produced, making up one season.[4]



From 2004 until 2007, Cooking for Kids with Luis was seen six times a day on Nick Jr. Australia (at 3:00 AM, 6:30 AM, 11:00 AM, 2:30 PM, 7:00 PM, and 10:30 PM).[5] Afterwards, the show continued to air on the network less frequently. The series is seen on a variety of networks worldwide, including Noggin in the United States and Nick Jr. in Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Germany and France (most of which are dubbed).[6] In Canada, Cooking for Kids with Luis was shown on TVOKids.[7]


In 2007, Pluto Press released a cookbook based on the series, titled Luis' Fab Food Favourites to Make, Cook...and Eat! A DVD containing ten episodes of the series was included with purchases of the book.[8]


Cooking for Kids with Luis won two ASTRA Awards in 2005: Most Outstanding Australian Production in both Kids and Short Form.[9] Luis was also nominated as Favourite New Presenter.

At six years of age (five as of the first episode's filming), the show's star Luis Tanner is currently the Guinness World Record holder as the youngest host of his own television program.[10]
