Content

There are few better places where parents and kids can spend quality time together than in the kitchen. 
This book celebrates those happy hours, as it brings alive a typical family kitchen's wonderful cooking aromas and medley of tastes.
It presents dozens of easy recipes for wholesome foods that even very young children can prepare when guided by parents' supervision.
Starting with healthful, nutritious ingredients, the authors show how to prepare foods that kids find irresistible--and that includes boys and girls who are fussy eaters.
Six separate chapters focus on specific food groups: Fruit * Vegetables * Dairy and Eggs * Bread, Pasta, and Grains * Meat, Chicken, and Fish * Healthy Treats As children and parents prepare good things to eat, the kids also discover how to test fruits for ripeness, test eggs for freshness, create a grocery list, measure liquid and dry ingredients, learn what makes cakes rise, and much more.
Meanwhile, they'll be making and enjoying healthy and wholesome baked blueberry French toast, veggie fried rice, pizza, mango lassi ice pops, edamame salad, tofu stir-fry, turkey and cheese roll-ups, cheesy egg muffins, peanut butter blondies, and many more appealing foods.
This book's cooking activities are recommended for parents whose kids range from ages 3 to 6.

Comment List (Total:3)

  •     We Can Cook is a confusing book; it is more an activity book for children than a cookbook. The book is spiral-bound, medium format. The recipes range from simple like smoothies to rather elaborate ones (Stuffed Butternut Squash; Pizza). Nowhere the authors indicate for what age group this book was written. Pictures show children from age four to six but instructions given suggest a much younger age. ("Show her how to peel banana," or "halve the tomatoes and let you child add them to the bowl.") It seems children are only allowed to do very simple tasks. There are many pages of activities that are good and instructive for young preschoolers using Pitamic's training and experience. (Grow Your Own Sandwich Filling; Using Your Nose.) Many recipes have useful sidebars in Helpful Hints. The recipes are good and nutritious (Levinson is a dietitian), perhaps excessively so to the detriment of flavor. Brief head notes explain the recipe, ingredients and nutrients. Serving sizes vary from one to eight. Full-page photo illustrations show either a child with a parent in the kitchen or a recipe's final product. Unfortunately, the index is poor. You will have problem finding a previously used recipe. (As appears in The Portland Book Review.)

  •     The recipes are clear and easy to do. The illustrations are lovely. Jessica, the author, did an amazing job collating it all.

  •     This is a wonderful cookbook full of recipes that my whole family loves. My kids love that the food is familiar, comfort food and I love knowing that what they are eating is nutritious. The recipes are well written and easy to follow.
