There are cookbooks for kids, and then there are cookbooks for kids. I’ve flipped through my fair share, to say the least, and most of them have gone by the wayside. There are two, however, that I reference quite frequently and have come to love. The first is Ready, Steady, Spaghetti: Cooking For Kids And With Kids by Lucy Broadhurst. A beautifully photographed book, the recipes are accessible and family-friendly. Every home cook will find the step-by-step photos very helpful along with the tips on working with children in the kitchen. The second is Bean Appetit: Hip And Healthy Ways To Have Fun With Food by Shannon Seip and Kelly Parthen. Based on the recipes they teach at their Bean Sprouts Cafe and Cooking School, this book combines healthy food with recipes, games, songs and activities. The ideas for presenting vegetables to your child is endless, it is bound to become a go-to resource. The best news about these two books is that Andrews McMeel has generously agreed to give away a set to one lucky Family Kitchen reader!
