    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.
