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.
