Wendy McCallum, a mom with a high pressure job, a husband, and
two babies, was trying to do it all -- including making sure her
kids were eating well. When her children turned four, she decided
to leave her first career behind and focus on learning more about
natural food -- and how to get all of us eating more of it,
starting with her own family.
Four years later, she''s ready to share what''s she''s learned.
We can all eat less of the packaged, processed, and prepared food
and instead enjoy real food that is quick, easy, and delicious. In
this cookbook, she offers easy-to-make real food alternatives to
the most popular processed foods -- from Kraft Dinner to Bear Paws.
Every one of her recipes is kid tested and kid approved. The
recipes range from Ain''t Jemima Pancake Syrup to Popeye Pesto to
Free Range Goldfish and This Chalet Chicken.
Wendy offers ideas on how to take the small steps that can
ultimately lead to big changes in how a family eats and feels.
Great presentation ideas and appealing photographs of the dishes
make this book practical and useful. There''s a wide range of
gluten-free, nut-free, and dairy-free dishes for families who have
food allergies to consider.
Wendy McCallum is a great guide for parents who want to make a
shift from convenient but unhealthy prepared foods to
quick-to-prepare real food that everyone will love.
