Every family's essential cookbook and invaluable reference for eating tasty, healthy meals based on the new Canada's Food Guide.

Fast food and packaged meals have become a way of life for many busy families. While these foods may seem convenient, they come at a price: childhood obesity and type II diabetes are on the rise, while children are being deprived of the benefits of real food.

Now, from the co-author of The Baby's Table and a respected pediatrician comes a user-friendly book for the whole family. This book covers the finicky toddler to the ravenous teen and all the stages in between. Here are 150 easy and appealing recipes that everyone will enjoy, featuring great ideas for healthy school lunches, snacks and family meals.

What's more, it's the only book based on the new Canada's Food Guide, published in 2007. The Good Food Book for Families will help Canadians understand and use the guide to its fullest. Also included are sidebars addressing topics including food allergies, the best foods for brain development, vegetarian diets, omega-3 fatty acids, and what to do when your teen wants to go on a diet.

In a world where supersized portions and highly processed foods have become the norm, there's no better time for this book.

Great book! Lots of information, and helps break down Canada's food guide by age and nutrition needs! Brenda Bradshaw is an elementary school teacher living in Vancouver, BC and Dr. Cheryl Mutch is a consultant pediatrician with an interest in children's nutrition! Great resource, well organized! Definitely a worthwhile read!
