This isn't a cookbook. This is a hippy bible. The first 50 pages are teaching you the manifesto of buying organic, avoiding plastic, etc etc. I'm fine with that message, but this isn't the book to spread it - I came here for recipes. And when they finally arrived I couldn't believe it. Dipping strawberries in yogurt isn't a recipe - it's a pinterest page. I came to this book looking for new ideas for my lunches at work, trying to avoid my staple bulk nuts, carrot sticks, etc. I didn't find anyth ...more

I have a confession. Even though this book is targeted for kids, I wanted to read it in hopes of discovering some new snack options for myself. Working from home leads me to graze all day and sometimes that means realizing I just ate a half a box of crackers. I wanted some easy snack ideas and thought that the "for kids" angle would be perfect. I was right!

A fun cookbook for little ones and adults alike. There are a lot of pointers throughout with beautiful pictures and tips on what to do for little kids and babies when introducing the foods in this book to them. There were wonderful combinations that are set for each season working on what is at the peak of perfection and making all sorts of new and delicious bite sized snacks that are nutritious as well as fun. Each recipe also gives you what nutrients are present in the recipes. These recipes a ...more

Parents who want kids to develop healthy eating habits, make use of locally-grown fresh produce, and offer children a variety of foods will enjoy this sumptuously-photographed snack cookbook prepared by a pair of friends who met as young mothers. Seasonal recipes and ideas for making kids' snacks appealing to the senses as well as packed with good nutrition.

I really liked this book. It provided real food, made with real ingredients, that was made in small amounts. I made a few different recipes and my family seemed to like them!

I LOVE this book. From a picture standpoint anyway. I want to make ALL The Things! I should really give it 3 stars but I'm a sucker for a pretty food picture. The recipes seem overly involved for any working mom of an actual little (after 10 ingredients my eyes cross. No thanks). And I have no freaking clue if they are any good when you actually make them. Looking good and tasting good are two different things. But I hope to give a few of these a try and if I had more time I'd buy it and cook ou ...more

Even though I don’t have children, I really loved this cookbook. The recipes were simple and each one seemed tastier than the last. I really appreciated that these were kid friendly, healthy snacks. Very cool.

Great looking recipes, not very allergy friendly.

I enjoyed browsing this cookbook with my kids. I appreciated that it is organized by season. Although some of the ingredients are kind of specific to the area the authors live in like rhubarb. The pictures are very inviting and got my 3 year old flipping through the book on their own as well as with me.

They picked out several things to try and did eat a little of each of their selections. I would say that the recipes seem to be on the very "healthy" end of the scale so some of the things weren'

Although the intention of this cookbook is making healthy and tasty snacks for your children, I'll probably use it to make small meals for myself. My 3-year-old is not an adventurous eater, but hopefully he'll join me in a few of these treats.

This was a really good book for healthy and delicious snacks. If I had children I would totally make things from this book. As it is I copied some of the recipes from this book to try out. I got this as a request from my local library. I really cannot wait to try some of these out.
