A collection of 50 recipes for snacks and treats that are nutritious and simple enough to be prepared in 15 minutes or less. This book offers tasty (even to kids!) alternatives to the sugar- and fat-rich snacks that nutritionists tell us form far too large a part of the diets of many American children. It provides creative ideas to reverse the unhealthy diet habits of kids who may suffer from obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, mood swings, and tooth decay. These recipes are fun, simple, and fast, and can be the start of a new tradition in family healthy eating.
