This review is from: Taste of Home Kid-Approved Cookbook: 328 Family Tested Fun Foods (Paperback)
This book has over 300 recipes, all aimed toward young tastes and help with food preparation. There are good suggestions for what different ages can do in the kitchen and icons with the recipes dividing age guidelines (3-12 and 13 and over) for help in preparing the different dishes.
Recipes are separated into; morning, lunch, dinner, munchies, sweets, party, and for younger cooks, even though the other sections have recipes also for those younger ages. The edges of the pages are colour coded so it makes each section easy to find. There are pictures for most of the recipes and an index by type and alphabetically. Recipes have no nutrition information.
The dishes are easy enough to prepare, but yet will give somewhat of a challenge, like making your own maple sausage patties, granola bars or your own pizza dough rather than just pre packaged items.
The breakfast section has some especially great ideas for breakfast; like breakfast burritos, puff pancake with blueberry sauce and eggs in muffin cups; but in the other sections there are few salads or green vegetables. Most main dish recipes are pizza, chili, cheesy and pasta types...of course this book also says they are kid approved and these are the recipes the majority of kids seem to want.

My daughter got this cookbook as a gift. The girls are under two, so they can not cook yet. But, I am sure she will be having them help soon. I loved the tips for what is age appropriate for kids to help with. Last night she made sweet sour chicken recipe. It was so good and simple to make. This is one grateful grama, who is going to have to get her own copy!
