New York Times best-selling author Vani Hari inspires you with over 100 recipes and everything you need to feed your family in a way that will foster a love for REAL food for life.
The multimillion dollar food industry has used their vast resources to target parents, convincing them that it’s difficult to feed their children good food. But here’s the truth: parenting is difficult, but feeding your children simple, healthy, real food shouldn’t be.
In Food Babe Family, Vani dispels popular myths about feeding our kids; offers more than 100 delicious recipes that make it simple to put healthy, real food on the table; and helps parents start children on a lifelong path of making good food choices.
From Pumpkin Muffins to Taco Salad Cups, Zucchini Pizza Bites, “Chick-fil-A” Chicken Nuggets and Waffle Fries, and even Homemade “Oreos,” Food Babe Family proves it’s not only possible, but fun to eat real food without artificial dyes, high fructose corn syrup, and other nasty ingredients.
Includes tips and tricks, such as how to:
Navigate the food in schools and daycares
Deal with "picky eaters"
Make mealtime fun for kids, without the processed foods
Eat out hassle-free and healthfully at restaurants
