-Little Food has kid-friendly recipes from nutrition packed Blueberry Pancakes to a beloved Guacamole, or Fresh Spring Rolls that kids can wrap themselves.
-Dinner Time is serious eating and there are recipes from a classic Pizza (kids love to sprinkle on the mozzarella) to Orange and Ginger Chicken Stir-fry, to Pork and Chive Dumplings where kids get to help crimp the wrappers. You can try Potato Gnocchi: no child can resist pressing the tines of a fork into the gnocchi to make them beautiful.
-Eat Your Greens will have your kid loving veggies. Not all vegetables are green but all are nutritious. Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese is simple and tasty - even a resistant child will dig in. Hash Browns are always a treat for kids, as are Scalloped Potatoes, while Honey Carrots make eating carrots a treat.
-Sticky Treats covers many desserts, most with good nutrition hidden in the sweetness. Try a Bread and Butter Pudding made with milk and dried fruits, or a Baked Apple stuffed with raisins and watch your kids enjoy the sweet treat while getting nourishment. Or try Lemon Delicious or Lime Delicious, another pair of treats make with milk.
-Cookies, Cakes and Sweets is play time for all as decorating takes the stage. Imagine the fun a child has making the thumbprint in Jam Thumbprint Cookies or cutting out the shapes for Gingerbread People that are decorated with colored frosting. Cupcakes with a cocoa powder frosting are dressed with chocolate disks which lets kids put the crowning touch on a cupcake.
Let's Party if the chapter for solid fun. Make Zebra Sandwiches, a finger sandwich of bread and chocolate-hazelnut spread and/or Banana and Date Fingers which are attractive on a plate. Mini Burgers are just the size for a child, while Cocktail Bonbons, sausages encase in dough and tied with string like the package of a bonbon, are so attractive that they will turn up at adult parties, too. Sweets Banana Bites are pieces of potassium-rich bananas on a stick and dipped into chocolate. There are Pirate Face Cookies made with jelly bans and Martian Cookies made with licorice allsorts and gummy candies and jelly beans. There are drinks as well, from a child's Piña Colada without alcohol of course, to Pineapple Cream or Chocolate Dream.
Ready, Steady, Spaghetti is a happy book and a useful book. It will set kids on the road to good eating while providing the joy of making the right choices.
