There are few better places where parents and kids can spend quality time together than in the kitchen. This book celebrates those happy hours, as it brings alive a typical family kitchen?s wonderful cooking aromas and medley of tastes. It presents dozens of easy recipes for wholesome foods that even very young children can prepare when guided by parents? supervision. Starting with healthful, nutritious ingredients, the authors show how to prepare foods that kids find irresistible—and that includes boys and girls who are fussy eaters. Six separate chapters focus on specific food groups:
Dairy and Eggs
Bread, Pasta, and Grains
Meat, Chicken, and Fish
As children and parents prepare good things to eat, the kids also discover how to test fruits for ripeness, test eggs for freshness, create a grocery list, measure liquid and dry ingredients, learn what makes cakes rise, and much more. Meanwhile, they’ll be making and enjoying healthy and wholesome baked blueberry French toast, veggie fried rice, pizza, mango lassi ice pops, edamame salad, tofu stir-fry, turkey and cheese roll-ups, cheesy egg muffins, peanut butter blondies, and many more appealing foods. This books cooking activities are recommended for parents whose kids range from ages 3 to 6. Color photos and illustrations on most pages.
My youngest daughter is all about food. Since we home school we have utilized food and recipes to teach her so much. It’s what she’s interested in and if she doesn’t own a restaurant or become a chef I will be very surprised.
We made smoothies, cookies, salads, and they’ve even been ‘setting’ the table. We are having fun and learning at the same time. I definitely recommend this book. Buy it HERE
