One of the best ways to get kids more interested in healthy eating is to get them into the kitchen, but many parents simply don’t know how to get started. Fortunately, there are plenty of good children’s cookbooks out there; The Cooking with Kids Cookbook is a fantastic addition here. This cookbook was compiled by the founder and program director of Cooking with Kids, a program in Santa Fe that has helped countless schoolchildren learn about cooking and growing their own food. This delightful cookbook features recipes made popular within the program, and children can help with the preparation of every single one. Kids can tear lettuce for salads and mix up dressings, such as in Salad Greens with Creamy Lime Dressing. They can chop some vegetables and measure ingredients for Vegetable Paella. They can mix dough and roll out Chapatis. They can crack eggs and mix batter for Strawberry Crepes. Another cool aspect of this book is its focus on gardening; scattered throughout the recipes are quick instructions for how to grow various fruits and vegetables, including growing seasons and how/when to harvest. The recipes will appeal to a wide variety of kids (and adults!), and the simple instructions make each dish accessible to even newbie cooks.
