Some of aspects of parenting never change. It can be quite a chore getting them to eat vegetables; left to their own devices, they’ll spend too much time either in front of the telly or glued to their PC/smartphone/tablet/gaming platform. Also, they never seem to stop eating.
Treat them to one of these childrens cooking books, and you might tempt them into giving you a hand in the kitchen. When they’re old enough, maybe they can take on an entire meal once in a while and give you a welcome break.
Here, we offer three titles of healthy and educational cookbooks aimed at children. Whether they’re budding chefs or just budding adults hoping to feed themselves and impress their friends once they’ve flown the nest, they are sure to have fun and learn the healthy eating principles we wish we’d been taught when we were children.
Best Cookbooks for kids
Not only will the Kitchen Science Cookbook send your kids racing into the kitchen to prepare sticky ice or scrumptious slime, it will help dispel the panic and fear of the unknown as your children step into their first science lab at school. Written by nanotechnologist Michelle Dickinson, this is the best cookbook for kids who think science is boring and not for them.
As parents become more interested in healthy eating habits, finding healthy food books for kids is also growing easier. Super Food for Super Children is a collection of simple, tasty, healthy recipes. Researched and put together by the record-busting Real Team, authors of the best seller, The Real Meal Revolution, SFSC has three parts, two indices (general and recipe), references, notes and a bibliography.
Super Food for Super Children will offer ideas on how to raise ‘superchildren’, show you how to find nutrition information by age group and recruit you into the nutrition revolution for kids. What they learn here will provide a strong basis they can rely on to keep you well fed and healthy far into your golden years.
Third in this hat trick of books for kids on how to prepare healthy meals is the Master Chef Junior Cookbook. Packed with 100 recipes featured on actual episodes from the television program of the same name, MCJC will undoubtedly teach you a thing or two as you and your child, tween or teen experiment and learn together.
The kitchen is the centre of family life
When you and your kids venture into the heart of the family, the kitchen, you will not only prepare food, you will be preparing memories that you will all be able to reflect upon with love and joy for many years after the last spoon has been licked and the last morsel savoured. Any one of these three volumes will become dogeared, highlighted and repaired many times over as they are handed down to future generations.
