ChopChop Cooking Magazine for Kids Launches New Children's Cookbook
Recently named the 2013 James Beard Award winner for Publication of the Year, ChopChop, The Fun Cooking Magazine for Families, has introduced families to the joys and benefits of cooking together since 2010. ChopChop's mission is to inspire and teach kids to cook and eat real food with their families. Its vision is to reverse and prevent childhood obesity-one of the nation's most urgent issues. But there is no finger-wagging here! ChopChop's message is positive, and the solution is fun.
Now, ChopChop founder Sally Sampson expands the boundaries of the magazine in the new cookbook, CHOPCHOP: The Kids' Guide to Cooking Real Food with Your Family (Simon & Schuster; August 13, 2013; $19.99). Featuring easy-to-follow instructions for wholesome, delicious meals, this book redefines what it means to cook and eat healthfully by bringing kids and adults together on exciting projects in the kitchen. From French toast to frittatas, chicken soup to classic beef burgers, and banana-peach frozen yogurt to mango lassis, these original, entertaining recipes celebrate nutritious eating together as a family.
Cooking at home helps kids stay healthy, builds family relationships, and teaches math, science and geography as well as cultural, financial and nutritional literacy. That's why ChopChop is your family's best friend-it helps kids create a healthy lifestyle from the start, a vital step in preventing and resolving the ongoing obesity epidemic in our country.
In CHOPCHOP you will find clear, easy-to-follow instructions for over 100 super yummy, totally doable recipes, as well as:
- Basic tips for kids just learning their way around food and cooking.
- Helpful hints for parents who want to encourage healthy learning and creativity in the kitchen.
- Lists of essential equipment and ingredients to keep in stock.
- A "seasoning experiment" that will help kids learn about main seasoning elements and how to adjust these according to preference.
Endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and guided by an advisory board of prominent doctors, nutritionists, and other experts, ChopChop's commitment to quality has led to a USDA National Strategic Partnership and attracted positive attention from the White House's "Let's Move" initiative. Best of all, all of the recipes are tested by real kids in real kitchens! CHOPCHOP comes out just in time for Back-to-School lunches and weeknight dinners. CHOPCHOP also makes a terrific gift for the holidays for any family hungry to cook more healthfully. With CHOPCHOP as your guide, your family will enjoy home-cooked meals like never before.
