Appetite for Life: the Thumbs-Up, No-Yucks Guide to Getting Your Kid to Be a Great Eater. Stacey Antine, $21.99

From fluorescent yogurt to 100-calorie snack packs, most "kid friendly" food has little nutritional benefit. We've convinced ourselves that in order to get kids to eat it, food needs to be packaged into something fake, colored, and far from its natural source. No wonder kids protest when we ask them to eat their vegetables. They don't come in a box! Stacey Antine knows from experience that the key to raising adventurous, wise eaters is to connect kids to the food they eat. Kids are more likely to try new foods and make healthy choices if they understand where ingredients come from, know why certain foods are good for their bodies and minds, and have an active role in preparation, from gathering ingredients to cooking. In APPETITE FOR LIFE, mealtime is no longer a battleground, but an opportunity for fun and experimentation.

Featuring food the whole family will love (no more separate kids menu!), this book includes nutritious, easy-to-make recipes for all three meals plus snack time, which have been tested and approved by the thousands of kids; family activities like Stacey's Supermarket Spy Kids game; and great-tasting, home-made alternatives to your go-to store-bought foods.

Complementary Feeding: Nutrition, Culture and Politics. Gabrielle Palmer, $18.95

Gabrielle Palmer's groundbreaking book THE POLITICS OF BREASTFEEDING highlighted the controversies surrounding the aggressive promotion of breastmilk substitutes. She now turns her attention to complementary feeding — the first foods that a child eats besides milk.

For most of human existence, children went without industrially processed foods and branded food products. The power and influence of the food industry has increased dramatically in recent decades. Seductive and often unethical modern marketing methods have led to the promotion of unsuitable, unnecessary and sometimes harmful baby foods. Yet not all industrially processed foods are bad and not all 'natural' foods are good. Both poor and rich children may be inappropriately fed.

What lessons can we learn from history? How do cultural and religious beliefs influence the choice of food? Can government initiatives have any effect? How can we provide good nutrition for all infants? This brief, compassionate and thought-provoking new book will be of interest to anyone who is curious about the world, its children and their nutrition, and will stimulate discussion and debate as part of the campaign to create a world where health for all is a true goal.

The Family Cooks: 100+ Recipes to Get Your Family Craving Food That's Simple, Tasty, and Incredibly Good for You. Laurie David & Kirstin Uhrenholdt, $29.99

For families, eating right has become a monumental challenge. Cultural messages convince us that we no longer have time to cook, and food marketers spend billions persuading us that packaged, processed food is convenient, satisfying... and the key to happiness. Half of all our meals are now eaten outside the home. Studies have clearly shown that eating home-cooked meals reduces obesity and develops lifelong healthy eating habits. There is an exciting movement afoot that involves a skillet, a few good knives, and some fresh ingredients: Home cooking is making a comeback. 

In The Family Cooks, author and activist Laurie David inspires parents and kids to take control of what they eat by making it themselves. With her longtime collaborator, Kirstin Uhrenholdt, David offers more than 100 recipes that are simple, fast, "low in the bad stuff and high in the good stuff," and designed to bring kids into the cooking process. The authors also demystify cooking terms and break down basic prep techniques, creating stress-free meals that foster health, togetherness, and happy palates. The Family Cooks is the ideal companion for unseasoned chefs of all stripes, whether they're parenting or being parented.

Research has proven that everything we worry about as parents — from drugs to alcohol, to obesity, and academic achievement — can all be improved by the simple act of eating and talking together around the table. Laurie has written a practical, inspirational, fun (and, of course, green) guide to the most important hour in any parent’s day. Chock-full chapters include over 75 kid-approved recipes; tips on teaching green values; conversation starters; games to play to help even the shyest family member become engaged; ways to express gratitude; the family dinner after divorce (hint: keep eating together) and much more.

Filled with moving memories and advice this book will get everyone away from electronic screens and make a lasting impact on family life.

Feeding Your Child with Autism: a Family-centered Guide to Meeting the Challenge. Mark Palmieri & Kristen Powers, $29.95

Feeding disorders challenge many children with autism, leading to tantrums, food aversions or refusal, or rituals. These behaviors are part of larger autism symptoms such as escape and avoidance tendencies, oral-motor deficits, and sensory issues. Left unchecked, they can threaten an individual's health and functioning, and overwhelm family life.

FEEDING YOUR CHILD WITH AUTISM thoroughly discusses feeding disorders in children and explains the types of supports families can use at home, as well as what professional help they should consider. The authors, experts in feeding issues and disorders, stress that regardless of the type of behavior exhibited, it's important to identify the underlying root cause and tailor a treatment plan using ABA methods.

The book recommends a community-based, family-centered team approach in which behavior analysts, psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, nutritionists, educators, and families work collaboratively during this two-part process.

Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating: a Step-by-Step Guide for Overcoming Selective Eating, Food Aversion, and Feeding Disorders. Katja Rowell & Jenny McGlothlin, $22.95

In Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating, a family doctor specializing in childhood feeding joins forces with a speech pathologist to help you support your child's nutrition, healthy growth, and end meal-time anxiety (for your child and you) once and for all.

Are you parenting a child with 'extreme' picky eating? Do you worry your child isn't getting the nutrition he or she needs? Are you tired of fighting over food, suspect that what you've tried may be making things worse, but don't know how to help? Having a child with 'extreme' picky eating is frustrating and sometimes scary. Children with feeding disorders, food aversions, or selective eating often experience anxiety around food, and the power struggles can negatively impact your relationship with your child. Children with extreme picky eating can also miss out on parties or camp because they can't find “safe” foods. But you don't have to choose between fighting over every bite and only serving a handful of safe foods for years on end.

Helping Your Child with Extreme Picky Eating offers hope, even if your child has “failed” feeding therapies before. After gaining a foundation of understanding of your child's challenges and the dynamics at play, you'll be ready for the five steps (built around the clinically proven STEPS+ approach-Supportive Treatment of Eating in PartnershipS) that transform feeding and meals so your child can learn to enjoy a variety of foods in the right amounts for healthy growth. You'll discover specific strategies for dealing with anxiety, low appetite, sensory challenges, autism spectrum-related feeding issues, oral motor delay, and medically-based feeding problems. Tips and exercises reinforce what you've learned, and dozens of “scripts” help you respond to your child in the heat of the moment, as well as to others in your child's life (grandparents or your child's teacher) as you help them support your family on this journey. This book will prove an invaluable guide to restore peace to your dinner table and help you raise a healthy eater.

It’s Not about the Broccoli: Three Habits to Teach Your Kids for a Lifetime of Healthy Eating. Dina Rose, $18.00

You already know how to give your kids healthy food — the hard part is getting them to eat it. When parents focus solely on nutrition, their kids — surprisingly — eat poorly. But when families shift their emphasis to behaviors – the skills and habits kids are taught — they learn to eat right. Every child can learn to eat well — but only if you show them how to do it. Dr. Rose describes the three habits — proportion, variety, and moderation — all kids need to learn, and gives you clever, practical ways to teach these food skills, including:

  • How to confidently explore strange, new foods
  • How to know when they’re hungry and when they’re full
  • How to branch out from easy-to-like prepackaged kid fare to more mature tastes and textures
  • How to engage in open and honest talk about food

Just Take a Bite: Easy, Answers to Food Aversions and Eating Challenges! Lori Ernsperger & Tania Stegen-Hanson, $35.50

Gag, tantrum, or become anxious if you introduce new foods? If so, you have a resistant eater. Learn the possible causes, when you need professional help, and how to deal with the behavior at home. Learn about:

  • Gastrointestinal, Physical, and Oral-Motor Development
  • Environmental and Behavioral Factors in Problem Eating
  • Sensory and Motor Based Problems Affecting the Resistant Eater
  • Designing and Implementing a Treatment Plan

Outside the Box: Why Our Children Need Real Food, Not Food Products. Jeannie Marshall, $29.95

When Canadian journalist Jeannie Marshall moved to Rome with her husband, she delighted in Italy's famous culinary traditions. But when Marshall gave birth to a son, she began to see how that food culture was eroding, especially within young families. Like their North American counterparts, Italian children were eating sugary cereal in the morning and packaged, processed, salt- and fat-laden snacks later in the day. Busy Italian parents were rejecting local markets for supermercati, and introducing their toddlers to fast food restaurants only too happy to imprint their branding on the youngest of customers. So Marshall set on a quest to discover why something that we can only call "kid food" is proliferating around the world. How did we develop our seemingly insatiable desire for packaged foods that are virtually devoid of nutrition? How can even a mighty food culture like Italy's change in just a generation? And why, when we should and often do know better, do we persist in filling our children's lunch boxes, and young bodies, with ingredients that can scarcely even be considered food?

Through discussions with food crusaders such as Alice Waters, with chefs in Italy, nutritionists, fresh food vendors and parents from all over, and with big food companies such as PepsiCo and Nestle, Marshall gets behind the issues of our children's failing nutrition and serves up a simple recipe for a return to real food.

What to Feed Your Baby: Cost-Conscious Nutrition for Your Infant. Stan Cohen, $19.95

When babies are born, parents are bombarded with information, much of it around infant feeding. Sorting through it all can be confusing and intimidating. In WHAT TO FEED YOUR BABY parents can find clear, accessible advice about feeding their babies in the first year. Pediatrician Stan Cohen considers the nutritional value of each option, as well as the costs involved, so that parents can make truly informed choices. He also discusses the common problems — gastric reflux, gassiness, and colic — as well as less common issues such as allergies, special needs, and prematurity.

Detailed, concise, and thoughtful, WHAT TO FEED YOUR BABY will help parents understand the impact of the feeding choices they make in these early months of their child’s life. (Note: this book is American, so it does not necessarily reflect the costs and lifestyle influences — such as length of maternity leave — parents here in Canada experience.
