Provides recipes for food that children can make by themselves, including tuna flippers, ABC salad, and honey carrots.
Let's introduce our kids to the pleasure of cooking healthy food! Mayo Clinic, a leading authority in health and nutrition, offers kids 50 great recipes they'll love to make and to eat! Kids absolutely enjoy kitchen projects, and they are much more likely to eat what they help to cook. When their cooking projects come from The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook, they will develop a taste for vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains, which will stay with them for a lifetime. The cookbook is organized so that kids know which steps need adult help. It gives gentle reminders about heat and sharp utensils to keep kids safe, and offers tips throughout about how to wash, snip, and process raw ingredients. Each recipe is illustrated with a colorful photo, has clear, step-by-step directions, and includes a handy list of equipment needed for cooks who are still learning their way around the kitchen. The book includes a range of recipes—some so simple and quick that no adult help is needed, and others for junior cooks who are moving beyond the basics. (How proud your kids will be to prepare Taco in a Bowl or Italian Oven Fries!) Give the gift of healthy cooking and eating to your kids.
