“I love to cook, create, sparkle in the eyes of the little ones, confides Bérénice Bompart, who lives in Alsace but comes from the Toulouse region. I realized that parents or patients faced the same problems when it comes to food diversification or when food for the little ones is denied. As a professional I wanted to give advice and help parents. †

Education according to taste

Each recipe is thus accompanied by nutritional advice, but also by the list of activities that can be entrusted to the children, depending on their age and their abilities. Peeling, cutting, weighing, decanting… the apprentice chefs participate in all phases with a dual purpose: preparing a family meal and developing good eating habits.

“When you’re small, you have a neutral taste palette. For me, all children have their place in the kitchen, even from the top of a high chair. Educating them about flavors means that they become adults who will taste everything later on,” continues the professional.

Bérénice Bompart has selected original recipes with titles with gourmet or friendly names. It offers “soft cookies with cauliflower and cheese”, “popsicles with chicken”, “mini waffles with carrots” as well as sweet preparations for balanced desserts. Children with food allergies are not forgotten with recipes designed for them.

“When you’re a parent, you should never give up. Flavors are constantly changing, she reassures. By guiding them through the kitchen, they will begin to taste. They are not asked to eat everything, but only to taste, to manipulate resources.”

raw products

For the recipes, Bérénice Bompart “has racked her brains to find attractive, original and simple things – so that the parents don’t spend two hours in the kitchen – and that it is balanced. †

Because balance is also one of the objectives of this book. The author promotes the use of raw products but also whole wheat flour or unrefined sugar.

“Anything that is refined provides few nutrients for our health,” emphasizes Bérénice Bompart. Ultra-refined flours are digested very quickly. Suddenly you are hungry much faster, tempted to snack and it is the open door to overweight, obesity, diabetes, different kinds of diseases. †

For hospitalized children

Last April, a study by Public Health France revealed that the incidence of obesity and overweight among the youngest in France has risen sharply since the start of the health crisis.

“During the birth, the children spent a lot of time in front of the TV, not to go out, not to exercise, the dietitian analyzes. Stress also plays on weight with snack cravings. But there was a positive point: the idea of ​​working with raw products and getting back to cooking. People are back to work, but they can continue to cook at home with the children. The idea is to say that we can treat ourselves to simple products. †

Bérénice Bompart has turned to others and has chosen to donate part of her royalties to an association that improves the daily lives of hospitalized children. “A no-brainer” for this mother. “I’ve always told myself that if I could do something on a grander scale, like a book, I’d donate what I earned for hospitalized children. I’ve spent most of my career in hospital and it made sense to me to keep helping people with what I do. †
