Overview

No one has helped more families find time to fit home-cooked meals into their daily routines than Rachael Ray. Now with the help of Yum-o!, the organization she founded to help kids and adults develop a healthier relationship to food and cooking, she has put together the ultimate family cookbook, which includes recipes that both kids and their parents will love cooking–and eating–together!

Rachael knows that every family wants to make the best possible food choices–and get the very most out of their food-budget dollars. The recipes here feature more whole grains, use less fat, and make the most of fresh fruits and vegetables so they are as good for you as they are delish, and they’re all quintessential Rachael–fun and creative.

You’ll also find notes on how to get even very young kids involved in the cooking process; great ideas for everything from breakfast to the lunchbox to dinner; wholesome snacks; and loads of new double-duty dinners that let you cook once, then eat twice or more.

With lots of full-color photos and tons of helpful tips for making mealtime the very best part of the day, Yum-o! is a must-have for every busy family.

In the introduction, Rachael Ray writes: 'The goal of Yum-o! The Family Cookbook is to make eating healthier as a family easier, more affordable, and fun.' And it IS a fun and colorful cookbook that is also loaded with practical advice. Full color photographs abound, with kids and food as the centerpiece. The cookbook is designed to get young kids to look at it and get into healthy eating. Very well done. The book is divided into three parts: healthy breakfasts, lunches & snacks, and dinners. Many of the recipes are classics that have been embellished to make them more nutritious. For example, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich adds banana, honey and turkey bacon slices on whole wheat. There are sections called Great Ideas. One is to designate a shelf in the kitchen and a shelf or drawer in the refrigerator for easy to grab snacks. Ray provides a list of healthy snacks, too. There is a list showing how greens differ in nutrition. Dinners look great and are appealing to both kids and adults. For example, cornflake-crusted tilapia with sweet and spicy watermelon salsa and mega turkey nacho dinner. This is a terrific cookbook for families with young kids who want to eat nutritional, tasty and easy to make meals. From the author of the award winning book, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet.

I have every book she has written and they are all wonderful!  To the person who gave 1 star...do you eat at McDonalds?  Do you eat boxed stuff every night?  Do you notice that you are the only one who rated the book that low.  Perhaps you are the boring and UN inspired one?

My kids like most of the recipes so far. I've had to cut back on certain spices that don't sit well with them (smokey paprika, was not a hit with them at all...). Other than that, we love the food, and once everything is prepped, all the recipes are extremely easy to make. One thing I really like is that the ingredients all fit within my budget! Am looking forward to using this cook book a lot as my kids continue to grow, and getting them more involved with dinner time.

I love her shows and her books. The way she reaches everyone at different ages and makes it simple that everyone can understand. My grand kids always want to watch her (beats some of the shows on TV for kids) and then we have that recipe for our next meal. And of course they remember the way to make it and do most of the preparing themselves.

Rachael Ray is a breath of fresh air. She is not a chef but she loves what she is doing. She is very entertaining and has great recipes! She cares about people & with this book, she is helping chilren too. If you don't happen to like her, don't watch her. You have another 100 or so channels to watch.
