Healthy Eating for Kids {eBook Review}


I'm always looking for unique and creative recipes that my kids will enjoy eating, even though they're healthy recipes. When I heard about the opportunity to review the book, "Healthy Eating for Kids", I knew it was right up my alley. These recipes have fun names to appeal to your child's imagination - let your kids tuck into an Edible Forest, devour a Happy Face Snack or dream of turning green when they drink a Hulk Juice.

"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.

The book includes 60 fun and healthy recipes in six different categories, including:
  • Snacks
  • Drinks
  • Lunch at Home
  • Packed Lunches for School
  • Evening Meals at Home
  • Desserts
Each recipe is designed to include the vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients that your child needs to stay healthy, strong, focused, and energetic. We've put an emphasis on ideas that:
  • Are healthy
  • Contain nutrients that are difficult to add to a child's diet
  • Fast and easy for parents to make
  • Use ingredients that most households have on hand
  • Encourage your child to get involved with his or her own nutrition
My son's new favorite snack is one of my favorites from childhood, Ants on a Log. However he prefers to use cranberries instead of raisins. The best part about most of these recipes is that your child can help make the snack with you. My son is in charge of spreading the peanut butter with a spoon and placing the cranberries on top (oh, and he's in charge of the eating too!). My daughter has fallen in love with the applesauce with cinnamon tortilla dippers. She helps sprinkle the cinnamon on the tortillas before we put them in the oven to bake and crisp up. We've substituted whole wheat tortillas and sometimes use pear sauce and apple-carrot sauce as well.

If you are looking for an awesome recipe book to entice your children to eat healthier then I highly suggest checking out Healthy Eating for Kids. You can purchase and download it in PDF format on the Healthy Eating for Kids website or directly from Amazon for your Kindle here.

I love cooking with my grandchildren. Teach them when they are young the importance of nutrition for a life long lesson.
Trying to become far more health conscious myself.

Really great ideas. I think the creative names make just as much difference with my picky eater....for example, she will eat "Saturday Soup" but not ham and potato soup. So silly!

Sounds like a great book although I'd want it in paperback, not e-book. Help to feed our kids more healthy is always appreciated.
