Handstand Kids Cookbook Review and Giveaway


Handstand Kids Cookbook 
Review and Giveaway


My daughter loves to "help" me in the kitchen in the mornings while I make our daily smoothies and pack my husbands lunch.  She wants to help me every chance she gets but there are few things that she is able to do since she is so young.

I have seen the Handstand Kids series of kid friendly cookbooks at Bed Bath and Beyond during various trips and could not wait to share them with my daughter.

About Handstand Kids:
The Handstand Kids Cookbook Company creates international cookbook kits that introduce children to the culture, language, and cuisine of a new country. Their cookbooks also offer children an introduction to the country's language.

The Handstand Kids Cookbook Company aims to use international cooking to create a global community of children and empower kids to take a stand in their own community. Cooking is a fantastic way to promote health and nutrition, explore different cultures, encourage family togetherness and give to others in need.

The Handstand Kids motto is "Traveling the world, one recipe at a time."

Our Experience:




 Each cookbook kit is uniquely packaged with a cooking accessory.  We received the Mexican Cookbook kit.  It came packaged in a tortilla bag with a child-sized oven mitt (although ours came with a spatula instead of the mitt).

I wanted to start her with something simple so we made the easiest recipe that I could find in the cook book, Cinnamon Sticks.  She had so much fun and can not wait to get back in the kitchen to try out the next recipe.

I found it very helpful that each recipe is clearly labeled with the level of skill needed.  It was also neat that the ingredients are listed in both English and Spanish so that I can teach my daughter the culture and language of Mexico while we are having fun in the kitchen.





**Disclaimer: I was not paid any form of cash for this posting.   I received a cookbook for the purpose of this review .  This is solely the opinion of Over Thirty Mommy. Other people may have different experiences with the products.**
