ChopChop is the cooking magazine for adventurous, culinary-minded kiddos and the adults who eat with them. In fact, depending on the household, parents may want to get their own hands on recipes for Spinach-Ginger Slushies or Oven-Roasted Broccoli (both delicious and packed with healthy ingredients). While some foods may be a harder sell to young palates (e.g., a savory take on oatmeal that takes it out of the sugar-and-spice category), the Kale Salad and the Herby Roast Chicken were big hits in our house. Most of the recipes are easy and straightforward, and the production values are great-tons of tempting photos accompany the directions. Each seasonal issue is built around a theme; recent topics include global stews, vegetables, and family dinners. Short articles on topics such as food science and kitchen safety, along with kitchen vocabulary, are regular components, and interviews with healthy eaters-including First Lady Michelle Obama-round out the content.
