"I find it much more stressful to serve meals these days now that we have little ones. I'm super conscious of unhealthy options, and try to make rounded meals that always include whole grains, fruits, veggies, and dairy. The challenge is coming up with new options every day. There's no doubt this book is a great new resource for our family. " - The Tale of Baby Riser

Format: Paperback
This was a great book that makes you look at eating habits of children in a whole new way! I love the way the book incorporated goals which a parent could easily start with their own child. Especially with the content may be eating too much and this book gives great tips and resources as well as recipes that will help the child in changing their own life. The book was fun and easy to read encourages parents and children to talk to one another about eating in their concerns about food. I highly encourage any individual that is looking for a great book that will encourage their child to change their life to read this, you'll not be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
I'm smitten. In a book that recreates the enjoyment of a really well done science fair project, Marshall's straightforward vision, wisdom, and down-to-earth practicality have cut through decades of my guilts and shoulds. His family are winsome companions on the journey toward eating and exercising sanely.

Marshall's one-month project ended up covering 61 days, each a two-page presentation with accompanying and short online videos. The two pages are so nourishing that I am filled for the day . . . with a recipe, some food information, a bit of a journal by Marshall, a bit of a journal by his mom Alex, and a few other morsels of thought. I wake eager for the next day's entry, and I haven't been tempted to gulp the entire book in a single sitting. Not all the videos have yet posted, giving a pleasant sense of immediacy.

Each member of the Reid family shares the journey from a unique perspective, with lightness and groundedness. Marshall himself is incredible at keeping the pressure off and the sense of a friendly adventure on. Though we are 50 years apart in age, he is one of my favorite teachers of 2012.

Personnally, I found this book kid friendly and easy to follow. My son picked a meal and cooked it with confidence and was excited to feed the family. Professionally, it is a relief to find a tool to convey the message of healthy eating to kids so they can be in charge of their lifestyle a bit more. This book seems to help kids make a decision on what they eat and how they eat it. I really apprecite Marshall's understanding of food costs and educating parents about choices. The best part is this book was written by a kid to kids.

Was disappointed that there was so little actual nutritional information in the book. Might borrow from library but wouldn't buy it again.
