Great gift idea for kids!
What better time to start teaching healthy-eating habits than when kids are ready to start cooking! The nutrition and health experts at Mayo Clinic have teamed up with the publishers of the bestselling Fix-It and Enjoy It cookbook series, to create a special cookbook kids are sure to love.
The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook offers 50 tasty recipes that are fun to make and fun to eat. The days of turning their noses up at foods that are "good for you" are over! To help them get started right away, the book includes healthy versions of foods that are already hits with kids everywhere: pizza, chili mac, French toast, quesadillas, sloppy Joes, chicken fingers, chocolate pudding and more.
They'll also find great ideas for those special occasions kids love to cook for — recipes like raspberry chocolate scones for mom's birthday, cowboy chili for Father's Day, pizza-flavored popcorn for family movie night, or spaghetti pie and frozen dream pops for sleepovers. The book includes recipes for every course and food group, with sections emphasizing fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and treats (snacks and desserts). Each recipe has a color photo to help kids say, "Let's make this one!"
The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook is much more than just a fun and colorful recipe collection. It teaches the basics of good nutrition with a short, illustrated introduction written at kids' reading levels. Kids will learn how the pieces of a healthy diet fit together in the Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight Pyramid. They'll learn that snacking can be a very good thing — provided they choose the right snack. They'll learn how to plan a meal, using the simple idea of dividing a dinner plate into four quadrants (for vegetables, fruits, protein and grains). They'll even learn how to create proper portion sizes without counting calories or using a scale. There's even a brief kitchen equipment list of about two dozen items, plus a dozen safety tips, all to help make the kitchen kid-friendly. In addition, specific safety tips are included with recipes as needed, to remind kids when to ask for adult help (such as when working with knives or hot water). The editors have even included subtle tips to help kids "unlearn" old kitchen habits that aren't healthy, such as adding salt to the water when cooking pasta.
One of the greatest gifts you can give the kids in your life is helping them establish healthy-eating habits from the start. The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook is a great way to teach kids about healthy eating. Kids learn not just to eat what tastes or looks good, but to understand the importance of food choices. It works because it's fun! Order a copy (or several) of Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook today.
