Groovy Green Livin Cookbooks for Kids

Cookbooks are everywhere in our house. Why? Because my son loves to cook. He’s constantly asking…no begging to bake or whip up some kind of fabulous snack.

It’s so important to let your kids be active participants in the cooking processespecially if they show an interest. If they cook it they’re more likely to eat it and hopefully love it. Having cookbooks for kids around the house will make the process that much easier. Of course their age will dictate how much or how little they can participate.

  1. So great that your son loves to cook! We have a bit of interest here but not a ton. Pretend Soup is such an adorable book! 🙂

  2. Thanks for the list. I want my kids to help in the kitchen, I just haven’t made it a priority yet. I already know they enjoy it, now I just need to make it happen!

  3. Thanks for your great post. List Rocks!

  4. Learning to cook is so important especially when you go to college. Most junior high schools have cut out home eco which I think is absurd. What a great list. I will share it on FB.

  5. I didn’t realize most schools cut out their home ec programs. That’s unfortunate. I remember that class well. Can’t say that it made me an amazing chef, but I learned a thing or two!

  6. Thanks so much Amit!

  7. Your kids are the perfect ages to help out Marsha. Especially the older two! Get them in there!

  8. He really does love to cook Micaela. The other two could take it or leave it. He’s usually motivated by sweet treats! Try that with your guys.

  9. I have my kids Betty Crocker cookbook from when I was little and always buy extra copies of it when people are selling it. The recipes are not very modern but it reminds me of great times as a kid making dinner for my family.
