Animal-Inspired Meals and Snacks for Kids, first published as Wild Eats and Adorable Treats, is full of simple, healthy recipes that kids will enjoy because all the meals resemble kids’ favorite animals. The dishes run the gamut, from breakfast delights to lunches and snacks to take to school, and of course dinner and desserts to make at home. The best part is that children will have a blast preparing and eating the dishes, shaped like different animals, such as owls, pigs, sheep, and many more.
Author Jill Mills, who has three sons of her own, incorporates fun facts about the animals throughout so kids can impress their friends with their new knowledge—in the kitchen and beyond!
Lavishly illustrated throughout, this cookbook includes recipes like Porcupine Pretzel Pear Snack, Foxy Fruit Snack, Koala Tree Treats, Gorilla Granola Cups, and more. This is an essential book for any parent struggling to get their kids to eat balanced meals!
