Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Burney (coauthor, Boost Your Child's Immune System), a nutritionist, has blended the most recent discussions of superfoods and children's eating habits into an economical, easy-to-use text. She includes over 160 recipes, geared toward different age groups. Rather than disguising superfoods, as Jessica Seinfeld does in Deceptively Delicious, Burney takes on the difficult challenge of keeping the ingredients' integrity. In some instances, the author might be wise to follow Seinfeld's example: it's not likely many teenagers will find appealing the whole anchovies in her Hot Salad with Balsamic Dressing and Fresh Anchovies. Part 2 contains an excellent discussion of foods for immunity, and one of the more stiking aspects is "food to fight common illnesses" in Part 4. Most have heard of a tablespoon of honey for a sore throat, but what about garlic-infused honey to build the immune system or black currant and strawberry ice pops to boost vitamin C and soothe? Though the recipes are inviting and nutrient rich, one may find difficulty in introducing them to children. Recommended for larger public libraries that already have a focus on childhood nutrition.
