ebook review: help yourself cookbook

Struggling to get your kids to eat their fruits and vegetables? Try letting them help themselves!

Experts tell us the best way to teach kids healthy eating habits is to involve them in the process. This irresistibe cookbook presents 60 appealing recipes kids will beg to make themselves, in fun and charming illustrations they will love. Bursting with color, humor, cute animal characters, and cool facts (Did you know your brain actually shrinks when you’re dehydrated? Drink water, quick!), Help Yourself empowers children to take charge of their own nutrition — for now and for life!

My Review:

I was hoping this book would target a younger audience, so I would only wait maybe three years instead of ten to share this with my daughter.
The Power tower and party in a cup recipes are good, and exactly what I expected: healthy beginners recipes that use simple ingredients.
But the Drinks are complicated and I wish most of the ingredients used were easy to find and budget friendly. I can work with vegetables, spices, and nuts but my local grocery simply doesn't stock algae.
As far as format, the Illustrations are cute and adult alerts are convenient. It's bright and colorful and seems like it would target 5 and 6 year olds like I was hoping. But the Introduction to kitchen safety could be redone to be shorter or have bigger words. Or even be in black and white so it stands out and lends itself as an Important Page. If I'm not paying attention to it, why will my daughter?
This is also my First Ruby Roth book and wow, vegan propaganda everywhere. But the book itself is a good concept with fun recipes and could be five stars with a little tweaking.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
