4 Ingredients Kids


  • Hello, moms and dads! Welcome to 4 Ingredients Kids! As we all know, a child’s appreciation of delicious, healthy food begins at home. If you like to eat great meals, they will too! If you enjoy cooking, they’ll want to get their grubby little hands in the kitchen as well. And the more they get involved in food preparation, the more likely it will be that they at least try whatever scrumptious bites are brought to the table. If any of you are familiar with my previous books, 4 Ingredients, 4 Ingredients Gluten-Free, 4 Ingredients Christmas, or 4 Ingredients One Pot, One Bowl, you know that I’m all about clever cooking and entertaining. Who wants to spend all day preparing and cleaning up after a meal when you could be eating, playing, and enjoying life with everyone you love?

4 Ingredients Kids features eighty quick, easy, and delicious recipes that require only four ingredients and are designed to excite kids (of all ages!) and to encourage participation in the kitchen. (Special note: Salt, pepper, and water are not included in the four ingredients.) In these lovely pages, you’ll also find sections on healthy eating habits, kitchen safety and hygiene, and loads of party ideas, all tested and approved by my three little boys, Morgan, Hamilton, and Flynn.

To put this book together, my invaluable 4 Ingredients team and I turned to social media and asked you, our wonderful readers, which recipes kids in the big wide world love, which ones parents currently have in their repertoires, most-requested meals, and which dishes your kids have made themselves. The most popular recipes, the ones mentioned over and over again, are what comprise this cookbook. Think Spaghetti Cupcakes, Partysicles, Dinosaur Eggs, Pizzadillas, and Taco Popcorn. Think smiles, fun, and full tummies for even the fussiest eaters. Think fewer ingredients, fewer utensils, less cleanup, and more time spent with family.

Kids are 30 percent of our population but 100 percent of our future. It’s up to us to arm them with the skills to nourish their bodies. Teaching our kids how to eat well and how to cook shouldn’t be a chore—it’s a gift. My hope is that 4 Ingredients Kids becomes a happy, go-to guide for your home and loved ones.

With love,

Kim
