The St. Giles Preschool Cookbook

2010 - 2011

About the Book

A collection of kid-tested recipes from the parents of the St Giles Parent Participation Preschool.

From the introduction:

A Parent Participation Preschool attracts a certain type of parent.When I told my mother, a retired preschool teacher, that I was thinking about sending my oldest daughter to a PPP, she said "you'll fit right in there" (and I swear there was a muttered, but loving, comment of "with those hippie PPP types!"). And she was right, our family fit right in. St Giles PPP is an amazing, nurturing, loving place. Our youngest is now in her final year at St. Giles, and we're going to miss it next year as we move on to our adventures at elementary school.

One thing that's no different between our parents and everyone else is that we worry about what our kids eat. And we're busy. Oh my are we busy. The recipes here reflect that. Some are quick. Some are for those days when you have enough extra energy to cook something special. But all are great, nutritious, kid-tested recipes. Give them a shot -- these are our family favourites, and some of them are destined to become part of your family as well.
