Parent Must Read:Food Fights Review & Giveaway

*Closed*

Parents deal with allot of things on a daily basis, but meal times can be another story. Meal times either go extremely well or extremely bad. Parents often want to feed their children healthy meals but children will decide on what they want to eat. With that in mind I would like to introduce you to Food Fights: Winning the Nutritional Challenges of Parenthood Armed with Insight, Humor, and a Bottle of Ketchup by Laura A. Jana MD FAAP and Jennifer Shu MD FAAP. This book was written based on their experiences as mothers and pediatricians.

I was sent a copy of this 2nd edition Food Fights book to review. I was trilled with the insight I received from this book and  every parent should have one. Knowing what to feed children is one thing. Getting them to eat is quite another! In Food Fights, 2nd edition, the authors tastefully blend the science of nutrition and pediatrics with the practical insights of parents who have been in your shoes―offering simple solutions for your daily nutritional challenges. Whether you’ve got an infant, toddler, or young child, Food Fights promises entertaining, reality-based advice on:

▪ How to pick your battles (and arm yourself accordingly)
▪ Whining and dining, throwing food, and other dietary distractions
▪ Heaping helpings, TV dinners, fast food, and other nutritional minefields
▪ Eating out, grocery shopping, and travel
▪ The 5-second rule

What I liked best about the book is the advice on how to get you and your child to establish healthy eating habits for a lifetime. I have Food Fights just in case I should ever have any questions on how to feed a picky infant, toddler, or child someday. I am now better equipped to tackle those challenges. I loved how comical Food Fights was to read and the practical advice that was given. Since it was written by pediatricians who are also moms and have dealt with these types of scenarios themselves, I felt confident in their advice. I could see how simple their tips would be to implement during meal times. However there was one part on milk that I didn’t agree with. If your child won’t drink milk, add sugary flavors to it for a nutritionally sound diet. I would never put in a flavored syrup that contains high fructose corn syrup. That’s just my opinion, but I know some parents that if its not flavored milk there children won’t dare to drink it, so I can see their point. As a parent you won’t always agree on what other parents agree on but its refreshing to see other parents view points.

Overall I feel that if you are a parent I recommend reading this book. If you would like to read this book you have a chance to win a copy of this book! Enter below using the Rafflecopter widget. The book is also available for purchase on Amazon or at your local bookstore, it retails for $14.95.

Picky eating have been one of the biggest challenges I’ve faced as a mom. My oldest two kids regularly eat raw spinach (without dressing) for a snack. They live for fruits and vegetables. It’s just natural…they love healthy food. Then my youngest comes along and has never tasted a vegetable that didn’t make him carry on like he was dying. I thought I had it all figured out (and was really patting myself on the back) and then I realized that, in reality, I know nothing and was just lucky with the first two kids! I’m going to pick up a copy of this book! Thanks for the review.
