Format: Paperback
With over 150 delicious recipes, you will want to try some of these recipes for yourself. Kids and adults alike will enjoy recipes for Berry Delight drinks or chicken patties in a soft tortilla. There are appealing and quick alternatives to fast food and non-nutritious snacks.

The authors Michael van Straten and Barbara Griggs have experience in the area of nutrition. Michael van Straten is a well-known medicine practitioner in the UK and is a practicing naturopath and nutritional consultant. Barbara Griggs has been studying and writing about complementary medicine for the past 25 years and is the health editor of Country Living magazine.

In this collection, you will find weekly menu plans for every stage of childhood, from conception to the teenage years. An interesting link between diet and allergies, behavioral problems and eating disorders is also helpful for parents dealing with these complex issues.

Nutritious food is now possible with Superfoods for Children. Delicious nourishing dishes can be made for your child to encourage healthy eating habits. There is a comprehensive guide to 130 top ingredients that form the building blocks of healthy eating for children. Vegetables, fruits, dairy products, grains, nuts and seeds, meats, fish, herbs and oils are then used in delicious recipes.

They do say that butter is better than margarine...ok, they get 5 stars just for that comment! I also appreciated the extra section on "Danger Foods." These are foods which used to be occasional treats but have now become part of our children's everyday eating. The authors explain why these foods are not healthy and in detail! I guess some of the items they discuss are not good for adults either.

Some recipes serve 4-6, while others serve 1 or 2.

The concept of this book was good. but the recipes are poorly written, sometimes with steps apparently left out. Even if the recipes are followed as written, the final product does not come out properly. In addition, my kids would not eat any of the recipes I made from this book. (Although my husband & I liked some of them). If you are looking for a children's cookbook I would look elsewhere.

Interesting book to read but recipes are complicated, time consuming and if that's not enough the 3 we tested tasted horrible. Food for little fingers is a much better book for both toddlers and youngsters.

Format: Paperback
Despite the comments about the recipes (none of which I have tried), I liked the book - especially the organization of it, the way the foods are listed with their important vitamin/mineral/etc. I think it is a very good book to have for any mother or father, as a source of reference, even if the recipes aren't used b/c at least you know what food is providing your child with what nutrient. I checked it out at the library, read it and wanted it immediately. My mother saw it on my coffee table, read it and also wanted it just for herself.

Format: Paperback
The book is very informative(so far) as a basic ingredient review, but there are glaring errors on page 114-115 (paperback version)in the section entitled 'kitchen hygiene'. While cooking food to the correct temperatures to prevent foodborne illnesses is certainly important, cooking roasts to 290 F; burgers to 320 F and poultry to 360 F, will yield a totally inedible and revolting product. Likewise, reheating leftovers to 330 F will not aid in economical use of leftovers. (The correct temperatures should be approximately 140F, 160F, 180F and 160 F, respectively). Should you need exact numbers or a specific reference, almost any other cookbook will have data on proper cooking temperatires, as will your local health department.
