Alongside the classic recipes for muffins and a great birthday cake, you will also find nutritious ideas such as fish en papilotte, adventurous stir fries, vegetable slaws or homemade granola. 50 recipes will teach the basic skills and offer variations to build on those skills. With easy-to-follow step-by-step photography, a fun graphic style to the food facts and kitchen safety, plus loads of basic info on how to shop, plan and balance your diet, this is the book to get kids cooking properly for life.
