Vegetarian Food For Healthy Kids
By Nicola Graimes
Packed with simple, fresh recipes that are nutritious and use vegetables in interesting and inspiring ways, the book is set to lure even the most reticent of eaters.
There are ideas for every type of meal including energy-boosting breakfasts; easy snacks; inspiring vegetable side dishes; and the bane of many parents' lives, packed lunches.
Each recipe highlights a super-healthy 'Hero Food', giving information on its health benefits, and also included are step-by-step 'Kids Cook' features, with ideas for delicious dishes children can cook themselves, with just a little help from a parent.
This book has a simple layout broken up into small, easy to define sections with nutritional information and recipes. It also contains scientific facts throughout to help readers make informed choices.
The introductory section states the following:
"Every parent wants the best for their children and top of this list for us is good health. The theory is so simple: just eat nutritious foods, drink enough water and cut out the junk. But we know thats light years away from what happens in practice
The book contains an 'in a nutshell' section for those wanting to gather information quickly and for me the whole book could be summed up with the words 'in a nutshell.' It doesn't really go in depth at any stage and although there were one or two interesting recipes there was nothing that blew my socks off.
Contained within the book are healthy breakfast and snack ideas as well as general day to day recipes. The only one I really wanted to try was the mango cheesecake.
One thing I did like about this book was the way it explains the best sources for vegetarians to get vitamins such as Iron.
All in all I have read better books for vegetarians.
