My Review:
I wish I would have read this book sooner! My oldest girl is an EXTREMELY PICKY eater and after reading this book, I realize that I have been doing everything wrong! This book has taught me so much about kid’s nutrition and made me understand how I should be going about getting my kids to eat healthy.
I liked how it was written in plain English and easy to read format. The author is very good at explaining the strategies and giving examples of how to get your kids to eat better. I feel so much more informed now after reading it and will definitely be referring back to this valuable guide. The recipes in it are easy to make and fun and I can’t wait to try more of them.
If you have a picky eater, then you need to read this book! To purchase or learn more, please visit Nutrition with K website.
