Many of you that have found your way here probably already know Little Dish as producers of healthy pre packed Children’s meals made with 100% natural ingredients. Well the Founder Hillary Graves, has produced this Fantastic little cookbook with a wide selection of healthy recipes to cook together as a family!
I have had the Little Dish Family Cookbook for a good ten months now. Actually, I was super Lucky and won it in a competition last year, excited was an understatement! I am always on the look out for healthy new recipe’s that I can cook for the family and I knew that Little dish had released this. However, as I like to try and remain thrifty I tend to get my recipe’s of the internet, therefore I refrained from buying it. Winning it was a real Bonus!
I adore this book, its not just about cooking healthy wholesome meals for the whole family. The book actually actively encourages you to get your children involved in the cooking and preparation. Therefore, is especially great for encouraging fussy eaters to try new things.
The book is laid out really well, It has clean crisp design with splashes of colour, accompanied with beautiful, mouth watering photos. To add a little bit of fun, each recipe has a cute little character. He or she advises what your little one can do to help. A fun little bonus with this book is the sticker chart and stickers. Finlay really loved choosing his stickers. Its a great way for your child to see what and how many new skills they are learning, very innovative!
The Book is nicely split into the following sections:
- Lunch & Supper
- Savoury Snacks
- Puddings & Desserts
The book also has very clear contents and Index pages. I cant stand not being able to find what I want in a cook book.
Lets Get Cooking!
As an afternoon activity, I always turn to the back of the book to either Savoury Snacks or Puddings and Desserts. I had my friends little girl also, therefore what better way to spend an hour or so baking with the tiddlers. Together we selected the Delicious ‘Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies‘!
These cookies were really simple to make. They only required a few ingredients, Rolled Oats, Flour, Butter, Egg, Light Brown Sugar, Raising agents and chocolate Chips. The little ones could really join in with this recipe, due to all the mixing and stirring (it was messy!!). As the book suggest they really loved rolling out the mixture into balls and squashing them with forks. A huge bonus is they only take 10 minutes to cook. So we were soon sampling the fruits of our labour and these cookies always get a huge thumbs up from us!
This book gets the thumbs up from us and is most defiantly one of my Favourite toddler orientated cookbooks!
Finally, at time of writing this post this book is available on Amazon for £7.00 – Bargain!
