Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Looking at family eating habits as a whole, pediatrician and obesity expert Margaret Kocsis, M.D. presents a comprehensive approach to meals for kids, teens and adults in ‘Savvy Eating for the Whole Family: Whole Foods, Whole Family, Whole Life.’"

"Dr. Margaret Kocsis, a noted pediatrician provides a safe, easy-to-follow action plan to get families from babies to seniors on the path to healthier eating."

"'If you eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables, a variety of whole grains and at least two servings of low-fat dairy products, you probably don't need a supplement that day,' says Dr. Margaret Kocsis. 'If, like most Americans, you eat three or fewer servings of produce or eat processed foods rather than whole grains, a multivitamin a day is good insurance.'"

"... a guidebook for those who are confused and frustrated by the plethora of diet books on the market - fad diets that ultimately don't work long-term and that leave us fatter and less healthy. Clearly there is something wrong with the way Americans eat. . .To combat the diet gimmicks and junk-food habits, Dr. Kocsis has developed a safe, easy-to-follow action plan to get families, from babies to adults, on the path to healthier eating." 100 original recipes

    Tasty, healthy and practical

    This book is down to earth with practical tasty advice. It includes a recipe index in the back to quickly find a dish. Even a 30 day meal plan if you need help getting started. Each chapter has a concise summary at the end to keep you focused and not overwhelmed. The medical/nutrition questions are covered in a question/answer lay out which keeps the facts clearly understandable. What a great combination!
