We are big advocates of getting kids in the kitchen early, in fact, one of our kiddos has started a cooking blog which we will be launching soon! I remember being in the kitchen at a very young age making chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake and all kinds of goodies. Sure, I made mistakes and thought I could substitute baking soda for baking powder, but hey, that’s how we learn!
For fans of Dora and Diego, Nickelodeon has come out with a very cool cookbook – Dora and Diego Let’s Cook.
Dora and Diego teach kids to make awesome (and healthy!) recipes-and learn Spanish along the way.
Just in time for the tenth anniversary of Dora the Explorer-the top-rated preschool program on commercial television-comes Dora and Diego Let’s Cook, a cookbook from Nickelodeon that gets kids safely exploring and learning in the kitchen. Guided by Dora and Diego, kids will help measure, stir, shape, and decorate 50 exciting and super-tasty recipes like Pirate Adventure Pizza Coins and Incan Quinoa Pudding-all while learning Spanish words and phrases.
These simple, delicious recipes emphasize healthful ingredients children need fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy and include a range of Latin dishes, like Benny’s Breakfast Burritos and Fiesta Trio Frittata. The book includes
* 50 recipes featuring Dora, Diego, and their friends plus 50 full-color photos
* Spanish words and phrases that let kids learn a new language while they learn about cooking
* “Kids Help” icons flagging steps in every recipe where kids can lend a hand with tasks like washing fruit or mixing batter
* Useful intro material on health and nutrition for preschoolers, plus the basics of how to get kids involved in the kitchen, including kitchen safety
Dora and Diego Let’s Cook turns getting kids involved in the kitchen into an exciting-and educational-adventure.
Get those kids in the kitchen!
