I was excited to get to review this book as it’s filled with healthy recipes for kids. My youngest has allergies so I am constantly looking for things that he can eat that will meet all his nutritional needs. (Oh, and they also have to be things he will eat!)
I loved the peanut butter and apple wrap. There are also old favorites like Ants on a Log. I can recommend this book for lots of ideas to get kids interested in eating healthy.
I’ve already tried a couple of the recipes and we’ve all had a great time making our after school ‘treats’
Ants on a Log
The health benefits of celery are often overlooked; however, this innocuous vegetable is a powerhouse of vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, and other essential nutrients. By combining fresh celery with the protein of peanut butter and the sweetness of raisins, you end up with a satisfying and delicious snack.
Fresh celery stalk
1. Wash the celery sticks and cut into three pieces.
2. Fill the depression in the center of the stalk with peanut butter.
3. Stud with raisins to make the “ants”.

Unique and creative recipes that kids will enjoy eating, even though they’re healthy recipes.
These recipes have fun names to appeal to your child’s imagination – let your kids tuck into an Edible Forest, devour a Happy Face Snack or dream of turning green when they drink a Hulk Juice.
“Healthy Eating for Kids” was written with the busy family in mind. Most recipes can be prepared in 15 minutes or less, which is less time than you might spend waiting in line for a hamburger and fries.
The recipes in “Healthy Eating” also come in kid-sized portions. If your child is a picky eater and refuses to eat the dinner that you are preparing for the rest of the family, you will be able to whip up a healthy alternative in minutes. On the other hand, if you would like to make a “Healthy Eating” recipe for the whole family, it is simple to do, since it is far easier to multiply the recipe than it is to sort out the portions for just one person.
60 fun and healthy recipes in six different categories, including:
* Lunch at Home
* Packed Lunches for School
* Evening Meals at Home
Each recipe is designed to include the vitamins, minerals, and macronutrients that your child needs to stay healthy, strong, focused, and energetic. We’ve put an emphasis on ideas that:
* Are healthy
* Contain nutrients that are difficult to add to a child’s diet
* Fast and easy for parents to make
* Use ingredients that most households have on hand
* Encourage your child to get involved with his or her own nutrition
