Books to Raise Foodie Kids
This list includes cookbooks: both ones meant for children and one that inspires new ways to present veggies to kids. There are also picture books to help talk about and explore food and food choices. And, remember, it can take kids as many as 10 times of being offered a new food before they accept it as part of their eating palette!   Print this list Print this list
