  • Hamlyn All Colour Cookery: 200 Recipes for Kids

    By Emma Jane Frost
    Authors:
    Emma Jane Frost
    As parents, we all know that children can be notoriously difficult to cook for. Many of us fall into the habit of cooking the same dishes over and over again, simply because we cannot bear the idea of scraping wasted food into the bin at the end of a meal. However, a child's formative years are when they learn to accept and like new foods, and it is therefore of great importance to encourage them with new tastes and different textures as often as you can. Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 Recipes for Kids has been put together with this in mind, but also with the knowledge that children are generally fussy creatures and like their food to be simple and to look good. Each recipe has been photographed to show you exactly what you will be cooking (and what they will be eating), and has of course been tested for child-appeal. To prevent your children getting bored by the same meals, we have also added a creative variation at the end of each recipe.
