With the goal of encouraging families to eat more fruits and vegetables, nutritionist Largeman-Roth (Feed the Belly) shares simple rules for healthy living and 90 recipes grouped by color. Cold chaser citrus salad, late summer succotash, and other recipes include nutrition information and are mostly easy to prepare. Between recipes, Largeman-Roth lists ingredient profiles with historical facts, nutritional benefits, and shopping, preparation, and storage tips. VERDICT Some of Largeman-Roth's recipes have limited kid appeal, but most offer interesting uses for produce.
