Book Description

Naturopath and nutritionist Julie Wood has two children; Antonia Kidman has four. Like most parents, they have encountered one of the most frustrating aspects of parenting: the fussy eater.

In Feeding Fussy Kids the authors have combined their nutritional expertise and parenting wisdom to show you how to boost your children's diets, encourage them to adopt a healthier approach to food and move them beyond their pickiness to understand how good food can make them feel stronger, happier and healthier.

The recipes focus on kids' favourites, such as sausage rolls and chicken nuggets, which are cleverly boosted with fruit, vegetables and other superfoods that even the trickiest eaters won't be able to see or taste; so little chocolate cakes contain a cup of broccoli, a tomato sauce hides five types of vegetable and little sweet treats contain more iron than spinach. These delicious, easy dishes will help you overcome your children's pickiness and ensure they receive the great nutrition their growing bodies need.

Contains:

120 delicious and nutritionally sound recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, desserts, baking and drinks

Tips on creating a healthy approach to eating and strategies for dealing with particular problems

Advice on encouraging your child's involvement with food -- from gardening and shopping to cooking and serving

An education and rewards program to support your child's healthy eating choices

Julie and Antonia have produced the perfect solution for all those parents who want both happy, healthy kids and peaceful meal times.

    Comments about Feeding Fussy Kids:

    Very informative, some good ideas ive had success with. Not fantastic for extremely fussy eaters who really pick apart their food. Not enough pictures! Maybe one picture per 6 recipies. With a fussy eater you need to see the end product before deciding if its a worthwhile recipie to even consider.

    Comments about Feeding Fussy Kids:

    Helpful explanation of why children are fussy and identifies different types of fussiness.
    Some clever ideas on how to get essential nutrients into children.
    Great recipes that are yummy for adults too.
    Inspiration to DIY instead of using packaged food.
    Clearly identifies how food will look/feel plus how long it will keep which is fantastic.
    Some recipes require a lot of effort that you may not have if you're time poor.
    Some recipes use expensive ingredients but on the whole it is fairly economical cooking.

      Love this book. Lots of recipes ideas to help your fussy eater get the nutrition they need. Some things my kids have liked, some things they haven't but it's given me inspiration and a new focus in the kitchen when I was feeling lost for ideas. I've also enjoyed some of the recipes too

        We have a fussy 2 year old who wouldn't eat anything much. But thanks to this book, I feel a much better mum providing nutritious meals. He now eats everything from this book.
