Are you a short order cook? Always trying to figure out what your kids will eat and make it as appealing as possible? I hope not! The best way to get picky eaters to eat or any kids to eat healthier foods is to get them involved in cooking. These cookbooks for kids and children’s books about healthy eating will inspire your little chefs. The Kid’s cookbooks are full of colorful photos, your kids will want to try new things and when it’s their own creation, they are much more likely to eat it up!
I’ve also included some books about the body, or how food affects a body, for your homeschool science curriculum or to teach your kids why clean eating is so important. When your children understand how healthy food benefits the body, they may want more of it. My kids heard carrots are good for the eyes, now I can’t remember if that is fact or myth, but they started wanting more carrots, so I figured it doesn’t hurt. I threw in ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ in this list because it’s one you just shouldn’t grow up without!
Cooking together as a family or getting kids involved in prepping their own food creates healthier habits, independent and innovative kids.
