A dear friend and wonderful woman, Deborah French, has published her second book which I was honoured to endorse. It is a cookbook for children with special needs, but truly is a must for all parents to have in their kitchen. Many parents theoretically believe that their children should be part of meal preparation, but when it comes to the crunch, don't know how to navigate it. Deborah's book walks you step-by-step through all aspects of food preparation, food and kitchen safety, recipe reading, balanced nutrition and joyful eating in such an eye catching way. I am excited to have it on my bookshelves and will certainly be using it with my children. Please see the link below for more information about the book.
Remember, the earlier children are involved in the kitchen, the better. Being able to create beautiful, nourishing dishes really raises a child's self esteem and levels of sensual comfort. It helps these little growing people develop a palate which rejects processed, adulterated food-like-products, guaranteeing an entrance into adulthood which involves an earthy and joyful relationship with real food.
