Feed Our Small World: a Cookbook for Kids, a Book Review

Disney presents a charming collection of recipes for children ages 3-7 in their latest It's a Small World series offering. In conjunction with FEEDprojects, Disney presents 26 recipes geared towards introducing kids to the joys of cooking, eating and thinking about the world. The book is broken down into four sections of recipes and is bound to have a few selections that will make even the most finicky eater happy. 

The artwork and styling of the book are part of the It's a Small World series in which Disney has partnered with other organizations to provide food, sustenance and other needs across the globe. The artwork was done by Nancy Kubo and was inspired by Mary Blair's iconic style

The recipes are based on traditional fare from different countries. There is also a fun fact with each recipe Enjoy this fact about cheese (I know you will):
Did you know that cheese sweats? As it ages, the proteins in cheese release moisture. It's all part of the process that makes cheddar and other hard cheeses so flavorful.

About the cookbook project:
Vitamin A not only helps prevent kids from losing their eyesight, it helps malnourished children fight off killer diseases such as measles and pneumonia. Sadly, millions of children do not have access to basic health care and nutritional supplementation. For these children, this one nutrient can make a big difference. This cookbook was created in collaboration with Disney Press and FEED Projects, a company with the simple mission to create good products that FEED the world.
A donation was made in support of the book to help FEED with the Vitamin A project.

Disney Publishing Worldwide provided a review copy of this book.
