Maybe some kids would love these recipes? Honestly, I think sometimes I expect too much from these books, as if the lists of ingredients were for magic, not mere recipes.

I like the idea of this book, but some of the recipes in practice... well. For me, they often fell in the category of so obvious as to make a recipe silly.

There were some cute illustrations, and maybe if you're working with a small child the simplified recipes make more sense.

I finally got this from the library- I've been on the waiting list for a while now! I haven't made anything out of here yet, but the recipes look simple, healthy, and my son thinks they sound "yummy"! :) Ill be trying these as soon as I get to the grocery store haha!!

So far none of the food tastes very good without lots of changes made to the recipe. Pinterest is a lot better!

The most useful parts of this book to me were the chapters on the nutritional needs of vegetarian children, list of animal-free protien options, and "quick substitutions" chart.
