Kid Approved was the dream of my husbands, made with my girls in mind. This cookbook is a collection of kid favorite recipes from pretzel wrapped hotdogs to chocolate cake and everything in-between. These two-hundred pages are packed full, beginning with dessert because every child wants dessert first to snacks, breakfast, menu plans, shopping lists and birthday party solutions.
This kickstarter will help fund the first ever Kid Approved, Mom Certified gluten free cookbook! I am excited to bring this new gluten free cookbook to real life.
Kid Approved is not just gluten free; it is also dairy free, peanut free, and soy free. Many of the recipes are also corn free. The book is being designed to allow a child with food allergies to eat food like everyone else, that tastes like they remember. We pride ourselves at GF Mom Certified with making safe food with all the original flavors and perfect textures. We do not compromise taste just to make safe recipes. We start with safety and finish with tasty. As a parent I know that bringing healthy food to the table every night can be a challenge. Kid Approved is the solution, your allergy solution.
I started GF Mom Certified for my girls. As a mom with three little girls with severe food allergies and being gluten and dairy free myself, I know firsthand the fear and anxiety a mom faces when trying to feed her children. Food is ingrained in our culture for rewards, celebrations and comfort. The idea of not being able to share with others broke my heart. I wanted my girls to grow up eating the food of my childhood. I love our old family favorites like my grandmother's chocolate pie or Grandma Pecola's sweet potato pie. GF Mom Certified launched after my first daughter was diagnosed with galactosemia at three days old and we needed to keep her alive. I had to learn to prepare food she would eat without dairy and without gluten, after a severe reaction at eighteen months old. I experienced a mother's gut-renching fear. I converted my blog and launched our website to provide gluten and dairy free kitchen solutions to others. These solutions came to be known as "Mom Certified" and "Kid Approved". Our first cookbook was published in April 2012.
Kid Approved will be our 9th cookbook and absolute largest to date with nearly 200 pages. I am so excited to be able to share it with you and many other Mom's & Kids who otherwise may not be able to receive it without this Kickstarter.
