Barbara Schaffer despaired of ever teaching her daughter Jennifer to eat healthily. Jennifer insisted she hated vegetables and fussed about any meals that did not feature her favorite foods, which included calorie bombs like french fries, hot dogs, hamburgers, and fish sticks. Jennifer’s weight was rising steadily, and she was oftentimes tired and dragging by the end of the school day.

Barbara had tried everything from pleading to insisting that Jennifer stay at the table until the last soggy carrot was eaten, to no avail – until she bought a copy of "Healthy Eating for Kids." It was with some trepidation that Barbara packed the first recipe she tried – a Gobble Gobble Sandwich – into Jennifer’s school lunch. What if she didn’t like it? What if she wouldn’t eat it and went hungry the whole day? But to Barbara’s great relief, the first thing that Jennifer said when she walked in the door after school was, "Mommy, lunch today was great!"

Soon, Jennifer was actively involved in picking out her own healthy meals, and even learning to cook the simple, kid-friendly recipes herself. Meanwhile, she found herself feeling more energetic, more cheerful, and doing better in school, thanks to her nutrient-packed diet.

Why did "Healthy Eating for Kids" make such a big difference in Jennifer’s life, where other attempts to improve her eating habits failed? The secret is that Healthy Eating concentrates on creating meals that are not only nutritious, but which appeal to a child’s palate and sense of fun at the same time. In this book, you’ll find food ideas that are:

Teaching children to eat healthily is not just a matter of pressuring them into eat good meals now and then. It is a long-term goal that will stay with them their entire lives, if taught properly. Healthy eating should not be about deprivation or dieting – it is about making the right choices to ensure that the foods a child eats are nutrient-dense and satisfying.

"Healthy Eating for Kids" makes proper eating an adventure that children will actively enjoy. What child wouldn’t love to put together and devour an Edible Forest or a Happy Face Snack? For children, nutrition is an added bonus on top of finding new foods they love. For parents, seeing their kids gobble down fresh fruits and vegetables in the place of potato chips and cookies will be a great reward.

Food is not the only source of bad nutrition for kids. Children today are gulping down massive quantities of carbohydrates and calories in sodas and other syrupy-sweet drinks. "Healthy Eating" contains recipes for ten delicious, nutritious, and low-sugar drinks that will satisfy your child’s thirst in a healthy way. Kick off the morning right with a Citrus Sunrise or help your child’s body grow strong with intriguing green Hulk Juice.

Once upon a time, stay-at-home mothers had the time and the focus to create three balanced meals a day, including nutritious side dishes. But in today’s world, there are many more single-parent homes and families where both parents work.

Meanwhile, children are also busier than ever before, with more homework, more after-school activities, more rushing from here to there. In today’s hectic world, who has time to cook, especially when it is far easier to fall into the trap of picking up a quick meal at a fast-food restaurant or pizza joint on the way home.

"Healthy Eating for Kids" was written with the busy family in mind. Most recipes can be prepared in 15 minutes or less, which is less time than you might spend waiting in line for a hamburger and fries.

The recipes in "Healthy Eating" also come in kid-sized portions. If your child is a picky eater and refuses to eat the dinner that you are preparing for the rest of the family, you will be able to whip up a healthy alternative in minutes. On the other hand, if you would like to make a "Healthy Eating" recipe for the whole family, it is simple to do, since it is far easier to multiply the recipe than it is to sort out the portions for just one person.
