Picture Books With Food Themes

Picture Books With Food Themes

The second annual #FedbyBooks February is coming up! I host this month long celebration on Instagram along with @thebookishcookier to feature the intersection of books and food. Everyone is invited to join by sharing food you’ve paired with a book, food you were inspired to make because of a book, or books you’ve enjoyed that include food themes. To help you find fun books with food themes I’m typed up several lists. This one features all picture books.

You can check out the other lists here:

Middle Grade and Young Adult Books With Food Themes

Adult Fiction and Non-Fiction with Food Themes

There are so many wonderful picture books with food themes, that I can’t include descriptions and pictures of all of them, but you can click the links to learn more about any you are interested in. (Disclosure: many of the links are affiliate links which means I receive a small commission if you purchase through the links at no additional cost to you.)
