Pretend Soup

My daughter is a very very picky eater ….so picky that even if it’s her favorite food she will not eat it if it doesn’t look right (like the pizza that just looked different because we ordered it from a different restaurant !)

As a last desperate attempt, I got this book and absolutely love it. It is a cook-book for preschoolers that they can “read” themselves. It’s got the same recipe with words for grown-ups and pictures for kids so they can “read’ and cook.

The concept of the book is that kids eat better when they are involved in the food preparation….Wasn’t too sure about my kids “helping” me but it turned out great and not too messy.

The recipes are mostly based on food found around the house and healthy and tasty.

My daughter ate broccoli for the first time when she ate the “bagel face” from the recipe found in this book….YAY !!



  1. Plus you can use the book to help in teaching your kids how to read. Interactivity, in my opinion, is a far more awesome way of having kids learn then just by lecture or experience.

  2. New Super-parents give more time to children.

    Britain has a new generation super parents who are professionalizing the role of running their families like a business , a study has said. They are spending an average of 99 mts now as compared to 25 in 1975. The study is conducted on 800 adults.The parents are having fewer children and having them later in life than previous generations.
    It was also found that having children now viewed as “Lifestyle Choice” rather than a inevitable life satge.It is against the report that children are being poisoned by junk culuture of computer gams televison and preocessed foods.
