Parents want what is best for their children in all aspects of their lives. Good nutrition and the development of healthy eating habits and healthy weight is front row center during the preschool years. Achieving these goals requires that parents take time to learn about nutrition, think about themselves as role models and then implement what they know and practice what they preach! This book helps parents to promote healthy eating by discussing topics such as development of good eating habits, overweight prevention, vitamins and minerals, trans fatty acids and other food facts relevant to the preschooler. The recipes are preschool kid-tested and incorporate the types of foods preschoolers like while providing the vitamins and minerals they need to grow, play and learn.
