Cooking With Your Kids

by Diane Lofshult on May 01, 2007

Recent studies suggest that kids who learn how to cook become more self-sufficient and more health- conscious adults. Cookbooks aimed at getting parents cooking with their kids are becoming a growing niche in the world of publishing. Here’s a look at several new cookbooks that teach kids the basics of making healthy food in their own kitchens:

  • Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook by Georgeanne Brennan (Random House 2006): Inspired by the work of Dr. Seuss, this book is great for younger kids, since many of the recipes require no chopping, cooking or appliances.
  • Baking With Kids by Linda Collister (Ryland, Peters & Small 2006): The 65 recipes in this collection cover traditional baking skills, along with more ambitious dishes like oven-baked crab cakes and vegetable chili.
  • Kids Cook 1-2-3 by Rozanne Gold (Bloomsbury 2006): This award-winning chef has created a simple but elegant cookbook comprising recipes that feature only 3 ingredients.
