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.
- RRP £14.99

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.

This time around, Nadiya tells festive stories and presents recipes that complement them. Designed to bring families into the kitchen at the most wonderful time of the year, among the easy-to-bake recipes are cheesy-feet biscuits that go with the story of some odd socks and where they go at Christmas time; pastry to go with the Elves and the Chouxmaker; and a nut roast to go with 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
All the stories have gorgeous illustrations by Clair Rossiter and celebrate the joy of sharing.

This title ties into the enormously successful CBeebies and BBC2 programme, "I can Cook" - showing 3-5 year olds how they can cook fantastic food themselves.

Led by charismatic presenter Katy Ashworth, 3-5 year olds learn how they can make a fantastic range of food themselves - with just the odd bit of help from a grown-up. Now over 50 recipes are available here for everyone to try at home. Lots and lots of step-by-step pictures make it easy to follow the instructions and get great results. And with food ranging from cheesy lasagne and sunshine breakfast muffins, to chocolate and mandarin pudding and chunky banana bread, the whole family can enjoy what the kids cook up in the kitchen.
