Next Wednesday, June 27, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan will host an Eat Play Local Day, with kid-friendly, healthy cooking demos and important health information for parents. As an extra incentive to register for the event, which is free with paid admission to the museum, Cricket Azima, founder of The Creative Kitchen–one of the event participants–has offered up a copy of her book Everybody Eats Lunch. One lucky registrant for Eat Play Local Day will get a signed copy of the book, plus an Everybody Eats Lunch thermal lunch bag. Register for the event here, or read on for a description of Azima’s book.
“Everybody Eats Lunch, is a cookbook that encourages children to appreciate world culture while reinforcing healthy eating habits in a creative way. Each page features a different country, containing colorful removable images of the food to explore; underneath is a recipe for the dish featured. Younger children can play with the lunchbox-shaped book and foods, while older children learn layers of educational content such as social studies, geography, math, nutrition, languages, and telling time.”
