The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook
Great gift idea for kids' birthdays, holidays
or school vacation!
What better time to start teaching healthy-eating habits than when kids are ready to start cooking! The nutrition and health experts at Mayo Clinic have teamed up with the publishers of the bestselling Fix-It and Enjoy It cookbook series, to create a special cookbook kids are sure to love.
The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook offers 50 tasty recipes that are fun to make and fun to eat. The days of turning their noses up at foods that are "good for you" are over! To help them get started right away, the book includes healthy versions of foods that are already hits with kids everywhere: pizza, chili mac, French toast, quesadillas, sloppy Joes, chicken fingers, chocolate pudding and more.
They'll also find great ideas for those special occasions kids love to cook for — recipes like raspberry chocolate scones for mom's birthday, cowboy chili for Father's Day, pizza-flavored popcorn for family movie night, or spaghetti pie and frozen dream pops for sleepovers. The book includes recipes for every course and food group, with sections emphasizing fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and treats (snacks and desserts). Each recipe has a color photo to help kids say, "Let's make this one!"
The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook is much more than just a fun and colorful recipe collection. It teaches the basics of good nutrition with a short, illustrated introduction written at kids' reading levels. There's a brief kitchen equipment list of about two dozen items, plus a dozen safety tips, all to help make the kitchen kid-friendly.
In addition, specific safety tips are included with recipes as needed, to remind kids when to ask for adult help (such as when working with knives or hot water). The editors have even included subtle tips to help kids "unlearn" old kitchen habits that aren't healthy, such as adding salt to the water when cooking pasta.

More about the Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook
We all know how unhealthy foods have been marketed to kids for decades, from sugary cereals and sodas to high-fat, high-sodium junk food. We know about rising levels of diabetes, a disease which often begins in childhood or with dietary habits learned at an early age. And we've heard the dire warnings about childhood obesity.
One of the greatest gifts you can give the kids in your life is helping them establish healthy-eating habits from the start. The Mayo Clinic Kids' Cookbook is a great way to teach kids about healthy eating. It works because it's fun! Kids will have a great time making a meal for the family, for guests, or just a snack for themselves.Every recipe focuses on foods kids like to eat. Our dietitians and editors have thought of everything, from the building blocks of sound nutrition and enticing serving suggestions to kitchen organization and safety.
