3 Healthy Cookbooks for Kids
Dust off Your Juicing Machine
“Best 100 Juices for Kids“ by Jessica Fisher (Harvard Common Press, $16.95) offers 100 recipes creating nutritious alternatives to soda and sugar-laden, store-bought juices. Seventy of the 100 recipes consist of fruit- or vegetable-based ingredients, while the remaining 30 are for creating creamy smoothies, several of which are dairy-free.
“Allergy-free Cooking for Kids” by Pamela Clark (Sterling Epicure, $14.95) offers relief for parents of children who have gluten, nut, dairy or egg allergies. Choose from 90 recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, after-school snacks or pastries.
A Child’s Point of View
“Ella’s Kitchen: The Cookbook” (Hamlyn/Octopus Publishing, $19.99) is the first of a new cookbook series created by Paul Lindley for his daughter, Ella, and son, Paddy. Lindley approaches cooking from a child’s point of view and uses “simple, natural ingredients that ooze goodness” to create baby foods and packaging that “really connects with little ones – with flavors, colors, textures and even names that will appeal to all of their senses.” Recipes include Fruity Banana Bars, Mega Macaroni and Cheese, Smiley Spiral Apple Tarts and more.
