by Jennifer Tyler Lee —
Like many parents, Lee struggled to get her kids to eat healthy, balanced meals.
The answer, she discovered, was making it a game: “We will try one new food each week. You pick.”
She called it the 52 New Foods Challenge.
In this week-by-week guide, Lee gives parents practical tips to dramatically change the way families eat.
Her helpful advice and simple rules will show them how to start eating healthy.
Each week offers a healthy new food to try, from artichokes to zucchini, and includes easy recipes and fun activities to work on as a family.
These range from learning to cook to enjoying the farmers’ market to even experimenting with growing your own food.
With more than 150 simple, healthy recipes and advice from acclaimed nutrition experts, parents will learn how to enjoy mealtimes, plant the seeds of change at the family table and incorporate healthy habits every day of the year.
Guaranteed to inspire a child’s creativity and confidence in the kitchen, the book is perfect for busy parents who want to stop stressing over mealtime and find a creative, playful solution to make this family ritual relaxing and fun.
