    I had the opportunity to review all three of Paul C. Reisser's


    I had the opportunity to review all three of Paul C. Reisser's new 'Guides for Busy Moms'. Overall I was very impressed with this series but the ‘Guide to Family Nutrition’ was a little bit too nuts and bolts for me though. It looks at the science and nutritional side of foods and their makeups which was interesting and informative but not something I think I'll pick up again and again to reread. In chapter 4 it delves into the matter of controlling our weight and problems that may be faced with eating and diet. This chapter and chapter 6 on diet for children that weren't so scientific in their presentation. As a mom I was most hoping to get more of the practical application of all these facts, maybe in the form of recipes, or a list format of foods to avoid, what to look out for on labels, substitutions you could make. The information is in there but it is presented in such a way that I feel this book is probably the least successful in being a quick and easy go to reference. I feel like I would have to read through parts to find just what I was looking for or to even figure out what it is I'm looking for.
    I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Publishing for the purpose of this review.
