Children’s Nutrition: A Parent’s Guide is a new book from the popular Need 2 Know series to give parents, grandparents, carers and teachers of children aged 0 to 18, a helping hand to make the best food choices for their children.
Children’s Nutrition: A Parent’s Guide explains the importance of a good nutritional start in life to ensure long-term health, and provides tailored advice for ages birth to one, one to five, six to 10 and 11 to 18. Full of recipes for delicious, easy-to-prepare meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as tailored menus to help support children with specific health or behavioural issues – parents can immediately put what they’ve learnt into practice.
Choose from ‘First Foods’, ‘Good Start Breakfasts’, ‘Keep Going Lunches’, ‘Tasty Family Dinners’, ‘Snacks and Treats’ and even ‘Medicine Cabinet Meals’ that may help boost your child’s wellbeing when coping with common ailments.
As well as the role of good nutrition in physical health, the book explains how the food we eat can boost children’s emotional and mental wellbeing. It also discusses the importance of eating as a family, and the bonding experience of choosing, cooking and sharing meals.
Angela Falaschi says: “Providing healthy meals and teaching what makes a good diet is one of the ways you can protect and support the children you look after. Our book will show you that it doesn’t have to be difficult, or expensive to create meals that children love and will help them to develop a strong immune system and provide all the nutrients their growing bodies need. We hope they’ll learn how fantastic good food can really make them feel.”
The closing date for this competition is 25th June 2011. Open to UK residents aged 18 years plus only.
