Top 100 Finger Foods: 100 Recipes for a Healthy, Happy Child {Review and Giveaway}- CLOSED




I was able to review a great kids cookbook:
Top 100 Finger Foods: 100 Recipes for a Healthy, Happy Child by Annabel Karmel.

Here is some great information about the cookbook. "Following up on her hit bestseller Top 100 Baby Purees, Annabel Karmel presents Top 100 Finger Foods, a scrumptious guide to creating tasty tidbits that young children can really sink their teeth (or gums!) into. By the age of nine months, many babies are ready and eager to start feeding themselves. Although they might not be able to handle a spoon, children of this age can master the art of eating on their own -- as long as the food they're served is right-sized! Finger foods are the perfect solution.
This essential collection is packed with tempting, nourishing recipes for babies and older children -- from French Toast Fingers and Mini Chicken Sliders to Tuna Muffin Melts and Salad Lollipops -- helping you safely introduce new tastes and textures to your baby and ensuring that your child is healthy, happy, and content.
In Top 100 Finger Foods you will find:
Delicious options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert Creative ideas for making hearty meals finger-friendly Important information on choking prevention and soothing suggestions for your teething little one Quick and easy recipes, using basic ingredients, that your child can prepare with you


Packed with wholesome fruits and vegetables, and innovative fish, meat, and chicken creations, Top 100 Finger Foods will satisfy the appetites of growing children -- and with dishes so tasty, parents will want to join in the fun, too. Eating with your hands has never been so delicious and nutritious!"
I am always skeptical of childrens cookbooks because I feel that more than 50% of the recipes are not realistic of what children would eat. Especially picky children. My two youngest fit into the categories of picky children. I was able to find some fun and very easy recipes that they really enjoyed. I give this cookbook a great review because:
1. The recipes are delicious
2. The layout and picture in the book are beautiful
3. The recipes are easy, allowing my children to prepare them with me
4. On each page you receive information as to if this recipe is appropriate for toddlers or not
Two of the recipes that my kids have really found to love are the pizzas and the apple pies. We have made these multiple times because they are yummy and easy to make.


I would highly recommend taking a look at her website where you can find great recipes, products and lots of other great cookbooks.
