I have yet to let my kids loose in te kitchen. They cook-- but never from the planning stages. Do you plan ahead of time and then go shopping or do they decide what to make with what is on hand?

They pick what they want to cook that month and give me the list. The older ones may do accompany me shopping at times and search for the best food deals by figuring price per ounce.
