The Heart Foundation has published a free cookbook titled Kids in the Kitchen, a collection of fun family recipes suited to children of all ages and abilities. The new cookbook is designed for Kiwi kids to work alongside their parents or caregivers in the kitchen, at a time when many schools no longer teach the important life skill of cooking.

Kids in the Kitchen is free to download: Heart Foundation Kids Cookbook.pdf
