We've found that the more you involve your kids in cooking, the more likely they are to try new dishes. And, if you want to expand your family's palate to more global flavors, Handstand Kids' International Cookbook Kits can make it easier and more fun.
So far, there are three cuisines featured in the series: Chinese, Italian, and Mexican. Each kit comes packaged in a (somewhat stereotypical) container that represents that country's cuisine. Inside, you'll find a cooking tool (like a chef's hat or hot mitt) and a unique cookbook that introduces language and culture along with traditional foods. And getting kids interested in another culture might be the ticket to opening their minds to new tastes.
The company is highly community-minded, supporting various charities and offering kids ways to contribute. They also host a blog that features free recipes and food-themed ideas often.
Each kit runs $25, and you can also purchase additional cooking accessories on their site.
