The recipes bring the films and its characters to life for little ones, from spaghetti with Lady and the Tramp to Hawaiian pizza with Lilo & Stitch.

There’s over 100 to choose from, with simple instructions so little ones can get involved too.

The list of ingredients on each page includes clear pictures of the item – great for helping children identify certain foods – as well as illustrations of the Disney character(s) it relates to.

Mallet trained at the prestigious Ferrandi culinary school in Paris before venturing into photography. He now combines both his loves as a food photographer.

“This book is the fruit of times spent in the kitchen with my two daughters, Jeanne and Paula,” says Mallet in his foreword.

“Ever since they were small children, they have been giving me ideas for easy recipes, and for this book they had fun inventing recipes to suit the Disney heroes and heroines who are much more familiar to them than to me.

We regularly cook together as a family; it is a fun way to get them to eat everything, even spinach, broccoli and turnips…”

Available from 18th October, you can pre-order the book now for £17.99.
