Kate really is doing a wonderful job teaching her eight little ones the value of giving back — but they can’t cook!

Kate Gosselin really wants her children to be well rounded. The June 27 episode of Kate Plus 8 followed Kate and her kids as they went to Kate’s old job.

Kate took her kids to a dialysis center to show them what it’s like to struggle with a disease. The kids took it very well and even baked cookies and treats for the patients — it was adorable!

Later in the episode Kate let the kids make their own “hodge podge” dinner. The adorable eight drew categories out of a hat then went to the grocery store and picked out their food contribution.

The meal consisted of sardines, veggetables, pudding, burritos, and other randomly tasty treats.

Even though Kate was completely grossed out, the kids had an amazing time.

Later the kids went to the barn on their gorgeous Reading, Pa., property and they fed their chickens! How cute is that?!

It’s so great how Kate is trying to instill such important lessons in her little ones.

The episode was short and sweet but we loved it.

Make sure to tune into TLC for all-new Kate Plus 8 episodes next week!
