A unique, timely, real life cookbook, Kids Cook the World encourages children to think about what they eat.
Bursting with delicious flavours from countries across the world, the book includes a foreword by the
world’s greatest chef, Ferran Adrià.


  “Kids Cook the World is a beautiful and inspiring family cookbook.”

    “Books like Kids Cook the World allow food to have an important social value.”

  "Big up to all the young people who helped to create this fabulocious book! It's fantastic when young people get into the kitchen and express themselves through flavours and recipes; and with this book, I'm certainly inspired!"

    "Kids Cook the World transforms the world into a creative, solidarity playground set in the kitchen."


  Kids Cook the World aims to instil a passion in families for good, wholesome healthy food as well as a passion for life. Author Sean Mendez explains, "The freedom to experiment, make a mess, burn food and cause spillages was all part of a wonderful learning experience for these young people. This book is about more than just creating tasty food. It’s about celebrating the different cultures within their own community and building confidence in children that will benefit other areas of their lives.”   All funds made by Solidarity Sports from sales of this cookbook go directly to our community work, inspiring vulnerable children to live healthy lifestyles.

Nearly 200 people attended the Kids Cook the World UK Launch on Saturday 24th September at Whole Foods Market, Kensington. It was a great success with many of the families and children who participated in creating the recipes coming along to the event. Books signed by the children sold out within one hour! Here is what some of our high profile guests had to say:

"It was a great honour and pleasure to share the event with you all. It was very moving."

As part of Google's 'Optimize Your Life' initiative - which aims to make Googlers the healthiest and happiest employees in the world! - we were invited to a Kids Cook the World party at Google London. Solidarity Sports and Google children cooked together and recreated 7 healthy recipes from the book. They also vigorously cycled away to make fresh smoothies on blenders powered by bicycles! We would like to say a big thank you to all the Google team for a truly memorable event!

"Your kids were just awesome - so much fun and they all just rolled-up their sleeves and went for it. It was a magical experience and easily one of my favorite ‘Optimize Your Life’ events."

Oli Husemeyer, Head of 'Optimize Your Life' in Europe, Middle East & Africa

"A fantastic day! We'll use some of these delicious recipes in our kitchen."

Adrian Evans, Google Executive Chef

"I had a very fun time. I did not know they invented a bicycle with a smoothie maker on it and I want one for my birthday."
