Yes! You heard right, an I Quit Sugar Kids Cookbook! (And we’d love YOU to contribute.)

  • Got kids and struggling to keep them sugar free?
  • Finding it tricky to navigate children’s birthday parties and events?
  • Want to spend time baking with your kids but stuck for healthy fun recipes?
  • Got a fussy eater who won’t eat his greens and looking for new ideas?

We’re putting together a sugar-free Kids Cookbook, and we’ll be tackling all of these issues and more!

You might like to get on board and contribute. Got a sugar-free kids recipe, or a very clever tip/trick you’d like to share?

Here’s how:

For recipes:

  1. To submit your recipe, simply email
  2. Include the header: KIDS EBOOK RECIPE
  3.  Your recipe:
  •  needs to be fructose free (no honey, maple syrup, agave)
  • include low-fructose fruits only
  • must be tested twice
  •  needs to be supplied with an image

We’re looking for recipes in any of the following categories:

  • lunchbox options
  • ways to get more greens into your children
  • healthy versions of fast food meals
  • party foods (cakes, cupcakes, treats, drinks, party bag options)
  • easy baking with young kids
  •  breakfast foods – clever, simple ideas
  •  kid staples (like baked beans on toast, or mac ‘n cheese)
  • healthy snack options for morning/afternoon tea
  •  frozen treats - ice creams, sorbets, frozen yoghurts and homemade ice blocks
  • desserts

We can’t promise that all recipes will be included, but we will be paying $50 for each recipe that makes the cut.

We’ll also include your name, and a link to your website and/or social media profile. As a contributor you’ll also have access to our affiliate program, which means you’ll be able to earn a little extra from the Cookbook if you promote it through your own website or social networks.

For clever tips and tricks:

  1. To submit, simply email
  2. Include the header: KIDS EBOOK TIPS AND TRICKS
  3. Your tip or trick needs to be just one or two lines, with your name and the tip or trick.

We’re looking for clever tips and tricks we can scatter throughout the Cookbook, for example:

“Amy’s tip: use two slices of apple with peanut butter in the middle as a nifty mid-morning “sandwich” snack.”

We can’t promise that all clever tips and tricks will be included, but we will be paying $20 for each one that makes the cut. We’ll also include your name, and a link to your website and/or social media profile with your tip or trick.

All recipes, tips and tricks need to be submitted BEFORE August 25.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Note: Writing your ideas in the comments below will not be counted as a submission.

    This is an AMAZING idea!!!!! Mums generally put their kids health before their own and struggle to make healthy options the kids won’t spit out. Plus this is where the education on sugar and taste bud changes need to start. I really commend you on putting this together and sourcing your followers for recipe ideas. Awesome stuff!

  • Kelly

    I am soooo excited that you are doing this. Brilliant idea, Bravo x

  • VE

    I would like to know of a healthy chicken nugget or beef sausage which is kid friendly. I can make my own nuggets but they don’t get eaten because the are not reconstituted meat (and mince is no good) and I can’t find a fine ground kiddie sausage that’s not full of crap. Anyone found any brands that are “natural”.

  • Shelly

    Why did I only read about this one now with three days to go!! Having been sugar and gluten free for five months myself, I have found it a challenge to fully convert the kids but I certainly have a few great recipes up my sleeve!

  • Sonia

    What a brilliant idea…as a mum I struggle with what to make kids that are generally fussy eaters. Kid’s today are surrounded by so many sugar tempatations everywhere, and just about every kid snack you pick up from the supermarket today is laden with sugar. If you can add some Gluten Free options for those with intolerances & alternative party food that would be great. Maybe add a page for the kids to read on why sugar is not good for them and what it does to their bodies. I think it’s important that we also need to educate our kids on making better food choices. I look forward to sharing this book with my kids.

  • Lisa

    This is awesome. I have two little girls who, like me, eat really healthily the majority of the time, but also have a sweet tooth. We love to bake together, but I really want for all of us to eat much less sugar. Very excited for this book to come out!

  • Karen

    Fabulous idea! Are you still looking for ideas or is it too late? My kids and I cook tasty Build your Burgers with lots of healthy choices for toppings.

  • Sue

    This sounds great! I am looking for nut-free recipes to send to school.

  • Madonna

    This would be a life saver! My kids are Gluten, Dairy & Sugar free, it is so difficult to come up with exciting alternatives to compete with some of the rubbish other kids seem to take to school… especially since i am pretty hopeless in the kitchen!
    Thank you for ‘putting it out there’ :)
