Overview

An internationally recognized authority on eating and feeding, Ellen Satter is a registered dietitian and board certified diplomat in clinical social work. For the first time in book form, Secrets of Feeding a Healthy Family outlines her unconventional and remarkably effective eating advice for adults. More a cooking primer than a cookbook, Satter’s simple and delicious recipes provide a backdrop for cooking lessons, fast tips, night-before suggestions, in-depth background information, ways to involve kids in the kitchen and guidelines on adapting menus for young children. Satter cites the studies to build a convincing case that we can lighten up on fat and sodium restriction without endangering ourselves or our children, while emphasizing her well-known division of responsibility in feeding — parents are responsible for the what, when and where of feeding, and children are responsible for the how much and whether of eating.

What People are saying about this

Dieting Casualty Recovering
Love your book and am having so much fun planning menus and learning to cook! I have never planned menus unless I was on a diet, but I am now and I am enjoying my food and feel safe because I know what is coming next.
Reviewer
When Satter says, "A family is what you are when you start taking care of yourself," it makes it OK to go to the trouble of feeding myself. Secrets was written for me, as well as for people with children
Educator Nutrition
It's wonderful when she says, "The Secret of Feeding a Healthy Family is to love good food, trust yourself and share that with your children." Encouraging people to eat well is far better than laying out all the rules.
