Mini Chef Cooking with Kids by Sheridan Rogers


Mini Chef Cooking with Kids by Sheridan Rogers

The ability to cook is one of the most important things we can pass onto children. Knowing how to cook a nutritious meal is not just important for keeping body and soul together, it's also a great social asset because friends and family always appreciate a home-cooked meal. It also encourages self-confidence and independence. Today, however, with so many parents working full-time, it's not so easy to find the time or energy to spend with our children in the kitchen. Mini Chefs has approximately 65 easy-to-follow, fun recipes that children can prepare under adult supervision - breakfasts, snacks, desserts, baked goods and main meals. With step-by-step instructions and pictures, as well as a how-to guide to prepping and measuring, Mini Chefs will ensure that children have a practical, exciting guide to their culinary adventures that will set them up for a lifetime of delicious, home-cooked food.
