"this looks like a wonderful kitchen/food experience I can share with my grandchildren - and get them to eat it too! I love it when people come up with things that kids can actually DO - and have FUN with all on their own. Great job!!"

"Hate to say it, but not very appetizing, although the items by themselves seem nutritional. I am glad though for any young one to take an interest in cooking, so GL."
