Eating healthily is now recognised as one of the best ways of keeping in good shape and ensuring a happier, longer life. Children who eat a healthy varied diet are more likely to be full of energy, suffer fewer illnesses and concentrate better at school. Children grow rapidly between the ages of five and twelve, so they need a good supply of nutrients, especially protein, calcium and iron.

Healthy Meals for Healthy Kids focuses on a way of eating that is about adding healthy foods to your diet, rather than denying yourself the things you love. The recipes in this book are about striking a balance between healthy eating and foods that children enjoy. Eating well shouldn't mean boring meals or denying treats, but providing a diet that is healthy and varied, as well as delicious. The chapters cover healthy breakfasts, lunches and snacks, main meals, pasta and grains and desserts and cakes. Each recipe has a nutritional note, highlighting the benefits of a particular ingredient, and there will be useful tips and variations throughout
