Lair's (coauthor, Feeding the Young Athlete) cookbook has something for each member of the family, from the small child to the adult with a sensitive palate. Its basis is in whole foods, a refreshing change from new cookbooks chock-full of prepared and convenience foods. Though the recipes incorporate only whole-food ingredients, they do not ignore the modern necessity of the quick and easy-to-prepare meal. An outstanding recipe is the French Lentil and Potato Stew, a hearty and healthy weeknight soup with subtle flavors. The book offers advice on how to raise healthy eaters and what staples to have on hand in the pantry, as well as a solid dose of food politics. It's fabulous for the young mother or father who wants to start a baby on healthy solid foods but also helpful for those wanting to integrate whole-food recipes into their usual repertoire. Highly recommended as an addition to any public library's cookbook collection.
