Hungry Teens Want to Eat Good Food! Go - Cook Something! is more than just a cookbook. It's a humorous, honest yet serious survival guide and valuable resource for independent kids between the ages of 10 and 17 who are venturing into the once foreign and hazardous territory commonly known as the kitchen. Savvy, hungry young adults, like the young writer, are becoming more independent at an earlier age. Experts note that there are over ten million "latch-key" kids in the USA. Kids who prefer to munch on great delicious foods after school - not just empty snacks that don't fill you up. Kids want quick, easy, no-brainer meals that they can prepare alone without blindly following a boring recipe. This guide prompts kids to think for themselves, plan ahead, be experimental, concentrate on wholesome foods and to customize recipes to their own particular tastes. If you have hungry active children, this book belongs in your home. It is one of the best gifts you can give children today.
