This is a must-read book for parents of little ones! Laid out beautifully, it describes some of the most nutritious foods that should be a regular part of our diets (both children and adults alike). There are accompanying recipes, tips and tricks. It's a lovely book from a visual standpoint - bright photography and a clean aesthetic. I highly recommend this book! Thank you, Quarto Publishing Group and NetGalley!
I've long been a fan of Sally Kuzemchak, who always brings warmth and humor to helping parents feed their children more healthfully, without judgment or hype. This book perfectly reflects those qualities, taking parents on a guided tour of 101 healthy foods, some of which they may never have considered offering their kids, or maybe even tried themselves. With gorgeous photography and an easy-to-read two-pager on each food, Sally offers fresh new information on familiar foods, while demystifying the less familiar ones, like kefir and hemp seeds. It's full of great recipes, preparation tips, and useful advice -- and honestly would be an excellent resource even for adults without kids!
Growing up as a very picky eater, I think this type of guide would have been very helpful for my parents. I love the tips on how to help your kids try different veggies, such as stuffed bell peppers, and the tips on how to prepare or cut certain fruits, such as a pineapple. I think parents will really enjoy learning about the nutritional benefits in fruits, veggies, protein, grains, and spices and seasonings that fill up this guidebook! You need this guide if you're a mom and you're trying to introduce healthy foods into your family's everyday eating habits or if you're trying to learn more about the nutritional value of all these healthy foods in the book. Either way, it's amazing!
I think this will be a great source for overwhelmed parents looking for new ideas on healthy food options for their kids. While it is not an in-depth guide, it is practical and its format is easy to follow, with a list of healthy foods that have brief descriptions about why they are healthy options and a few recipes and tips interspersed, along with a set of convenient Top Ten Lists at the end. Thank you to NetGalley for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
