The organization of this book is outstanding: it makes the book extremely useful! This can be your pocket guide for shopping… the author actually compared labels of hundreds of products, and those products are regular store items that most of us find/ shop for at regular stores. The same no frills is reflected in the very useful recipes, which are quick (very key for any busy mom!), and contain common, budget-friendly ingredients, no exotic, hard to find or pronounce products. In one word, while this book does not follow or set any fad trend, it is an amazing resource for any family. All families should cook and eat meals together. This book is a great tool for week-day family dinners, when you want to get that healthy bite to the table as quickly and easily and safely as possible, while still enjoying the whole process! Thanks, Jill West, the consumer now has a handy qualified dietary advice –it’s like going shopping or cooking with your friend dietitian, who can assist you with your choice: which desert should it be for tonight? That being said, while the book does not promote eating disorders by “forbidding” whole groups of foods or categories of products, it does make a strong point: “this is how we do things around here” –eat fruits and veggies and your kids will embrace them too. I grew up in a culture where fruits and veggies are the norm, so never once did it occur to my kid’s mind that you have the “choice” of opting out of the family’s menu!
