Starred Review. Parents and kids alike will have a wonderful time in the kitchen with this delightful collection of over 50 kid-friendly recipes. Registered dietician McQuillan and the stars of Sesame Street compile a wide range of dishes, from classics like Chicken Nuggets, Fish Sticks and Macaroni and Cheese to more exotic fare such as African Peanut Butter Soup and Bert's Tutti Frutti Turkey Salad, which gets a boost of flavor from curry powder. Recipes are simple and straightforward, and each has at least one step a child can perform. Parents will like the fact that the book offers plenty of healthy alternatives to junk-food snacks and dishes traditionally high in fat; lowfat yogurt, for example, substitutes for mayonnaise in tartar sauce and sour cream in stuffed potatoes. Kids will also enjoy learning how favorites like peanut butter and applesauce are made. Packed with jokes, tips and food trivia from Grover, the Count, Big Bird and others, this title lives up to its pedigree, making both learning and cooking fun for kids.

As soon as we got the book, my 5-year-old meticulously went through every single page, and he has continued to do so almost every day as it sits out in the kitchen. He has spent a lot of time pouring over this book! So far this week we've made the Cookie Monster pancakes, Ernie's jelly omelet, and the Oscar's Dip in the Mud (simple chocolate fondue). It is truly amazing how much the kids love participating when they feel like the book is designed for them and they are a true part of the food creation, not just doing Mommy's dirty work. ("Here son, scrub these potatoes for me!")
I highly recommend this recipe book. You might think (as I did) that you don't really need more recipes. These are simple recipes that you might be able to do better on your own, or easily find on the internet. We all know how to make pancakes. BUT, the big difference is that with this book, it's not just Mom looking up some recipe on her phone and telling the kids what to do. Here, the kids get ownership. And that is worth every penny.
The chicken nuggets have become a family favorite for adults and kids alike due to the flavorful coating.
The recipes are simple and usually involve ingredients I already have in my pantry. I love that for each recipe there are specific steps that kids can do (these are all identified by a little Elmo figuring next to the number). For the most part, the recipes here are low fat (which is good given our obesity epidemic). However, if you have a skinny kiddo like I do, you can easily make substitutions to boost the calories.
