In 2013, Jessica Rosman launched the Kindy Kitchen series, a collection of rhyme and recipe books that were created to help children build an emotional connection to fruit and vegetables.

The books were illustrated by award-winning illustrator Nettie Lodge.

In 2014, The Healthy Kids Association used two of the books in their annual Fruit and Veg Month program, which went to hundreds of schools in NSW.

Since then, Kindy Kitchen has been re-worked into one fabulous and mouthwatering cookbook, with all the original stories plus many more new recipes. The new Kindy Kitchen cookbook is published by ABC Books and was released in Australia in November 2015.

The Kindy Kitchen cookbook was released in the U.S. in May 2016.
