Release date: 
Wednesday, October 6, 2010

KIDS can get really stuck into learning to cook delicious, quick and healthy meals with the help of a new guide from veggie group Viva!.

Viva! Kids' Cook Veggie is a fabulous 28 page colour booklet featuring 23 recipes, many of which were invented by young veggies and vegans themselves!

Learn how simple it is to eat veggie and why people do - before being taken through step-by-step how to create lots of favourite dishes without meat and dairy products!

Kids can have loads of fun rustling up a whole variety of yummy meals including: bean burgers; fishless fish and chips with tartar sauce; chilli non carne; pizza; sausage and pasta salad, to name a few.

Sweet things include: colourful cookies; carrot cake; pancakes and a big birthday cake.

Editor of Viva! Kids' Cook Veggie, Helen Rossiter, says: “It's never been easier to cook your favourite meals veggie, as our new guide shows. If you want to encourage your family to eat more healthily and ethically, this is a great place to start.

Twins Jazz and Finn, 7, whose chocolate truffle recipe appears in the guide, say: "We loved making our truffles and we hope lots of other kids will like them too."

Libby,7, who submitted the recipe for fishless fish and chips, says: "I love my recipe because it tastes just like fish and chips, but no fish were harmed to make it!"

All the recipes are illustrated with beautiful colour photographs.

Viva! Kids' Cook Veggie is priced at £1.90, plus p+p and can be ordered by calling Viva! on 0117 944 1000 or visiting www.viva.org.uk/vivashop.
