As a new mom and a registered dietition myself I am always looking for great nutrition advice that applies to real life for my family and my clients. This book is filled will wonderful information that targets families and even specifies the needs for specific subgroups like babies, teens, men and women. It even addresses pregnancy needs. After reading this book I started recommending it to my clients that are in charge of their families diet and need a good at home resource. I love that it is written by a registered dietition who is trained to provide tis advice rather than other authors of books that are trying to push a fad diet or quick fix plan. It is simply a "must have" for any family trying to take charge of their health.

Feed Your Family Right! offers the best of two worlds: practical advice from a real-world mom combined with a well-considered, scientifically- grounded framework for success.

Many diet and exercise books assume we all have three hours a day to train and have the knowledge and discipline to eat a perfect diet.

Zied, however, does a terrific job of balancing the everyday demands of work and family with the goal of raising healthy children and being healthy ourselves.

Feed Your Family Right! is a very readable book. I enjoyed reading it, have already put its advice to work and have given it as a gift to my wife for the holidays so that we can both be on the same page!

I'm a registered dietitian in Connecticut, and I've read Zied's book. In fact, I make it a point to keep up with all her work in the media--whether on paper, the Internet, or national TV--because she's one-of-a-kind and truly a gifted nutrition expert. I counsel patients privately, and I encourage them to read Feed Your Family Right! because I know it will help their families. What family doesn't need a positive boost with eating better? Food should be good to eat and healthful. This book will help you with that.

Not every child likes vegetables. Some families are really busy. Most families like to eat in restaurants. Women gain weight with pregnancies. Elisa Zied, a dietician, knows this. She wrote "Feed Your Family Right!" with this in mind. She, too, struggled with her weight, so she can relate to all these issues.

Zied writes in a simple manner that allows everyone to understand the basics of good nutrition. There are charts that break down the information in easy-to-digest form; pun intended. She includes recipes; however, I do not think anyone should tamper with homemade macaroni and cheese. Just leave the fat in that dish.

Certain conditions, such as pregnancy and diabetes are discussed. Practical advice is given. Fitness is stressed. She explains different levels of exercise and their benefits.

Zied mentions a common problem: being too busy to work out. She mentions that although it is best to work out for at least 30 minutes straight, breaking that into intervals is better than nothing.

Portion size is stressed, especially when dining out. She teaches the readers to associate fitness and nutrition with positives. Instead of telling your child not to eat another bowl of ice-cream, because they will get fat, tell them that eating nutritious foods makes them run faster, jump higher.....She also warns against making children eat everything on their plates.

Zied explains to parents that we must lead by example. Having overweight parents increases the likelihood that the children will become obese; therefore, mothers should not feel guilty for exercising instead of cleaning, cooking, playing Legos......

Make fitness fun for the entire family.
