Editorial Reviews

“Written as a response to a lack of healthy cookbook options for kids, this volume describes its audience as “toddler to teenager,” encouraging plant-based cooking and eating from an early age. It includes tips and resources on picky eating, information on whole-food plant-based diets, ingredient information, and cooking basics. The recipes are divided into sections by meal and are presented beautifully, with a full-page photograph and clear directives. Additional photos and notes, including allergy suggestions, dietary accommodations, and tips are provided when necessary. Supplemental sections provide in-depth instructions on topics, such as “How to Plan and Pack a Healthy Lunch.” These recipes introduce readers to new plant-based ingredients and adaptations of processed food staples like a Box Mac ‘n’ Cheese.” – School Library Journal.
