Review:

This updated edition of Owlkids’ first book offers interesting, delicious, varied menus and trusts children’s abilities to prepare and cook them...The [Chick and Dee] cartoons are sure to be enjoyed by the little ones who may also be drawn to try new foods because of them. (Canadian Children’s Book News)

Our Test Kitchen manager took this lively book home to her two daughters and they gave it rave reviews. (Canadian Living)

In a busy world where many kids are eating lots more takeout food and prefab meals than when their parents were young, Eat it Up! is a big silver bullet to the bad-food monster. (Chronicle Herald)

Containing nearly five dozen kid-tested recipes, Eat It Up! does almost all the things that an excellent recipe book for children should do. (CM Magazine: Canadian Review of Materials)

Learning to cook is important for children. On the practical side, there are so many mental and physical skills cooking helps children to acquire. Then the all-important part of cooking: getting to eat and share the results with families and friends. Eat It Up! adds another essential dimension to cooking: fun. The book is brilliantly colored, with food photos and step-by-step illustrations that make this book easy to follow as well as lively. Unlike some books that pander to children's love of sweets, Eat It Up also draws on savory favorites, our cultural diversity and healthy eating practices to offer young users a great introduction to a lifetime of independence and pleasure in the kitchen. (Elizabeth Baird, Executive Food Editor Canadian Living)

The zany spirit of the cartoon personalities may contribute to a messy kitchen, but the diversity of recipes should lead to some happy eaters. (Publishers Weekly)

Unlike many cookbooks launched into the juvenile market, this one is truly kid-oriented...The recipe instructions spell everything out, even the most basic techniques. Best of all, the food choices are appropriate for young diners...The visual elements of the book are excellent, and the color photos of food are especially effective...Eat it Up! will have wide appeal as a first cookbook for both girls and boys... (Quill & Quire)

An excellent book to introduce children to cooking healthy meals and snacks...The products are so well presented and appetizing that kids will want to make every one of them. (Resource Links)

Some recipes are truly fabulous and kid-friendly... (School Library Journal)

...simple, easy, and yummy recipes. (The Family That Reads Together blog 2011-12-09)
