Little eaters are known for being picky. There’s a world of food out there, but how do you get kids excited about it? Well, books can help! A lot. The following is a list of some of my favorite children’s books about food.

The first book you met was probably a board book. It may have been GOODNIGHT MOON or PAT THE BUNNY. We love these books for their childhood nostalgia.
