Every caregiver knows the trials of feeding a picky eater. Some nights are truly a battle.

One surefire way I've discovered to get my picky eaters to eat is to let them help make the meal. After all, food tastes better when you've had a hand in fixing it. Let your child try their hand with the recipes in this book. A child who becomes the superhero of dinnertime is one who eats super well.

REVIEW By LAWONDER10:
Be a Superhero in the Kitchen is an awesome idea to keepchildren occupied, gving them a sense of independence and accomplishment. From the beginning - with a page on kitchen safety and hygienic tips, followed by simple, limited ingredients recipes, it is completed with desserts !
The book I have, is a hardbound, quality made book with thick pages. each page is beautifully colorful, with very large cartoon-like images along with simple, easilt read recipes...What's not love! With the guidance by an older sibling or adult, the child can safely learn to cook simple meals and become very efficient in culinary skills at a young age.
Written for children 6-10 years of age, the amount of freedom with cooking must be determined by parent or guardian, depending on maturity of child. This is a great step in teaching a child to be conscientious and independent.
The only negative I see, is the meals are not all that healthy, However, they are what most children would enjoy. Occasionally, it is okay for a meal to lack some nutrition.
Wouldn't most parents enjoy some sharing the preparations of meals or the contentment in knowing, if they are late, the child can fix a simple meal?
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating
*I was gifted this book with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
How did you do research for your book?
Research for Be a Superhero in the Kitchen was fun. My daughter and I brainstormed what sounded good together, raided the cabinets/fridge, and figured if we can put an idea into motion. If we didn't have all the ingredients, we made a quick run to the store. We love browsing the aisles and experimenting with ingredients. Sometimes our ideas were not exactly pleasing to the tongue. But when we struck gold, there was lots of cheering.
In the book, there are a few recipes passed down from family members: Fearless Chicken and Noodles, Reckless Rice Soup, Powerful Potato Cakes, Boomtastic Butter Cookies, and KAPOW! Party Punch. There wasn't much research on our part for this. We are just grateful they passed their delicious creations unto us.
Here is the tour schedule.
Meet the Author:
I am a wife, mother of two kids, a lover of comic books, and a home cook. I believe in making mealtime an enjoyable experience through joint cooking and kid-friendly meals. I also believe kids that help with the cooking process are more likely to eat their meals, which leads to a happy, peaceful dining experience. Be a Superhero in the Kitchen is my first children’s cookbook, but I strive to publish more.
