    This is a collection of hands-on healthy eating books that use fun activities, recipes and facts to explore different food groups including vegetables; fruit; meat and fish; dairy; and cereals.

    From the farm to the shop and then on to your plate, these books explain where food comes from and how the various types help our bodies when we eat them. The activities also encourage children to think about food variety and what they should put into their bodies in order to stay strong and healthy.

    Accessibly written, these books also have food fact boxes to provide fascinating information about food in bite-sized chunks.

    In this follow-up to Kids Kitchen are 100 new recipes for both sweet and savoury dishes - and they've all been designed and developed with children in mind.

    None of the recipes use sharp knives or are cooked on the hob, meaning they're safer for children to cook themselves (with adult supervision, of course). Most of the recipes use measuring jugs and measuring spoons and there are photographs to help children know exactly what to aim for.

    It even has dishes for children with gluten intolerances and coeliac disease. Among the recipes that can be added to family meals are up-side down baked potatoes, every-flavour pork chops and cashew couscous, while there are also over 50 baked treats including fresh lemon cupcakes and rainy day banana bread.
