I’ve been working on a super special project for the past year or so and I’m SO excited to share it with you—it’s a cookbook for toddlers called Food Play! Learn all about it and how to preorder to be one of the first to get a copy.
Cookbook for Kids
I love to have my kids in the kitchen because I’ve found that it helps to make new foods less scary, it gives us something to do together on days that we’re at home, and it lets them experience smells, textures, and skills that they otherwise wouldn’t. And the confidence and joy that appears on their faces when they do something on their own that they didn’t think they could is so much fun!
And so, I wanted to make this cookbook for them and your kids too! Inside the wipe-clean pages you’ll find 25 easy, assembly only recipes. Which means that there’s no heat or unsafe steps, but instead simple recipes that the kids can make and eat. There are ideas for each meal of the day, pictures of real kids making the recipes so the kids have visual cues, and helpful hints for parents. It’s straight forward and so much fun!
Busy Little Hands: Food Play!
Here’s the official description of the cookbook:
Get kids ready kitchen exploration! With this Busy Little Hands book, preschoolers become chefs, kitchen artists, and adventurous eaters. Each recipe teaches kids to have fun and play with food while laying a foundation for a love of cooking and eating well. Whether making Magic Fruit Wands, DIY Flavored Milk, or Use Your Noodle Bowls, kids are encouraged to try out edible items of different colors, tastes, and textures, while creating their own favorite ingredient variations. Parents and caretakers will appreciate the emphasis on healthy ingredients, including fresh fruits, natural sweeteners, and even a chocolate smoothie with spinach, avocado, and zucchini hidden in the mix! Filled with bright pictures for pre-readers, this book guarantees little ones will love stirring up healthy, delicious kitchen fun.
Where to Buy
The book comes out this fall, but it’s available for preorder now. Preorders are vital to the success of a book as it tells sellers and distributors how many copies to print. It also ensures that there is a copy of the book for you! I’d SO appreciate your support of this book and would love it if you could also tell a friend about it.
Everyone from parents and grandparents to daycare providers and preschool teachers will find really useful ideas for keeping the kids busy and well nourished! I hope that so many kids have more fun in the kitchen (and with their food) because of the book!
BONUS: If you preorder a copy, you’ll get a free bonus pdf with two extra recipes to try making with the kids today! Just email me at. yummytoddlerfood @ gmail.com a copy of your receipt and I’ll send it to you right away!
