Tons of fun ideas!
The two authors opened a cafe filled with healthy and fun meal choices for children, called Bean Sprouts. Now they also also have a cookbook, Bean Appetit, that includes recipes from their restaurant. Bean Appetit is full of brightly colored illustrations, "Table Talk" conversation starters and entertaining activities for kids, in addition to delicious recipes.Was this review helpful?

I really enjoyed the ideas in Bean Appetit for helping kids to become mini-entrepreneurs, from lemonade stands to selling bags of muffin mix or potted herbs that they started themselves. All of the meal ideas are creative and easy for kids to be a part of assembling them. The Mama Mato is a cute little mama made from tasty items like a tomato, olives, basil, cheese and spaghetti. The Pumpkin Pie Milkshake with vanilla frozen yogurt, pumpkin puree and cinnamon was one of the yummy dessert suggestions. And Campfire Crunch takes the standard snack foods -- grapes cheese, carrots and pretzel sticks -- and transforms them into a delightful snack!
Bean Appetit is not only a cookbook, but it also gives plenty of engaging ways to build a healthy culture and environment for children, starting right at home!

terrific for picky preschoolers!
saw this book mentioned on Good Morning America - such a great approach to getting kids to trying new tastes without hiding the good-for-you ingredients (bad idea IMO). My kids are having a blast trying the fun recipes and recipe steps (i.e. making sounds like an alarm clock while making a breakfast dish). Online says appropriate for kids 7-10, I'd say more like 3-7. Yummy!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
