Format: Paperback
This book is really great! I like it because it addresses my questions as a Vegetarian, but isnt strictly so. It's for everyone. Most of the books out there dont go so far as to tell you about nutrition, and mainly give recipies and are mostly for meat eating diets. My son hates vegetables, and is a picky eater and I found that this book helped me with those issues instead of glossing over it and then providing recipies with veggies and things he wouldnt like anyway. The recipies are really good, and easy to prepare. Healthy and tasty, to boot.
I reccomend this book to anyone, no matter your diet. Its easy to read and very informative. If you have a baby, I would reccomend 'Super Baby Food' by Ruth Yaron to go with this.
These to books are awesome if you want your children and yourself to eat health consiously.

As a parent, I had no idea where to start in terms of my children's nutrition and or researching dietary guidelines. This book is a great start. It also covers information on pregnancy, child athletes, and eating disorders. This is a must, for any parent.

This is a fantastic resource on raising a family on a plant-based diet. It has great info for pregnant women and for new babies on up. It is a little bit old, but still filled with evidence-based science and does not have any opinions based on the emotions/beliefs of the author like some other books out there. I found that very helpful: here are the facts, you decide your own opinions. Very great, highly recommend!

This book has good information on nutrition for pregnant women, babies, children and teenagers. It has a chapter for athletic children and teens. This actually works for me because I have a teenage daughter who is a swimmer. The book has delicious recipes very easy to prepare.

Lots of good information that unfortunately is not readily available through normal sources. Information from pregnancy right up through teen years. Could help parent avoid doing something that would promote Type 1 diabetes in their child, as well as many other lifelong diseases. Even has a chapter(11) for the athletic child.
