Our innovators

Aparna Pande – Founder

Prior to Kidstir, I spent my career creating content for kids and families, working at Mattel, Meredith (owner of Parents Magazine), and Disney. Food has always been a huge part of my multicultural household, but I was intimidated by cooking, especially once my twin boys came into the picture.

I wanted their relationship to food to be a healthy and positive one, and realized there were probably many families like my own. Kidstir was born from the vision that with the right tools and community, we can all gain confidence and build everlasting bonds in the kitchen.
