Heather’s recipes tick all the boxes when it comes to kids cooking: easy, empowering, delicious, fun, and all with a healthier twist. My daughter always feels excited about cooking Heather’s recipes because they are broken down with useful tips that make kids feel at home in the kitchen and I love that my child is learning a lifelong skill while learning creating a variety of tasty dishes our whole family enjoys.

As the mom of two opinionated little boys, I get that attempting to raise happy, healthy eaters is no joke!

My kids have whined about sitting down for a meal and sneered at their veggies. Carefully packed lunches have come home uneaten. And they’ve definitely rejected dinner then asked for a snack 3 minutes later.

It’s enough to drive you crazy, right?

What’s my solution to overcoming these challenges?

Invite kids to join you in the kitchen and make food FUN! 

When your kids participate in the kitchen, you create pressure-free, fun opportunities for them to explore and learn about food.

While KID KITCHEN  is primarily for ages 7-12 looking to gain more independence and confidence in the kitchen, it truly is for ALL kid chefs given the right amount of adaptations and supervision! The family favorites in this book are aimed at kids' palates (that adults are sure to enjoy also!) From the child just starting out to those that want to expand their kid chef skills, there is something for everyone!

Adult supervision is always advised. As your children gain more confidence and skills in the kitchen, your level of hands-on supervision will vary. With three levels of difficulty, many recipes in KID KITCHEN can quickly be "mastered" by your budding chef! Of course, with heat and knives involved, we always recommend adult supervision.

We have done our best to include recipes for everyone! As allergies can vary, we have provided as many substitution suggestions as possible. KID KITCHEN also has a variety of recipessome which include meat, dairy, and eggs and some that are vegetarian/vegan-friendly!
