Recommended for parents with children ages 3 - 6.
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
- Healthy Treats
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 blueberry muffins, vegetable dips, veggie pizza, frozen raspberry popsicles, three-bean salad, raisin and cinnamon buns, turkey strips with tomato salsa, cheese and ham croissants, chocolate brownies, and many more appealing foods. This book’s cooking activities are recommended for parents whose kids range from ages 3 to 6. Color photos and illustrations on most pages.
