"...outstanding 'KidPower' series outlining recipes for healthy lifestyles for kids will especially appeal to grades 3-5, and provides step-by-step healthy recipes kids can easily follow along with plenty of color photos of kids in action in the kitchen." —Children's Bookwatch, 01/05 "With Multicultural Meals kids can take a culinary trip around the world. This attractive, engaging book presents foods from around the world, all updated to be low in fat and sugar. Using photographs of real kids from multi-ethnic backgrounds, as well as colorful images of the food and an inviting text, this cookbook will make any kid want to run to the kitchen and get started. Many of the recipes are easy enough for kids to do by themselves....The book begins with basic explanations about things like food staples and spices, as well as safety tips and a visual glossary of cooking terms. There is a good deal of helpful information throughout the book, including both nutrition and the origins of certain dishes. Also included are a glossary and index." — Jewish Book World, Fall 2004 "Bobbie Kalman's 'Kid Power' series provides kid-friendly, kid-appealing recipes for active kids, encouraging kids to eat right, cook, and learn about food in the process.
