Main description:

Cooking for your Child is a book to encourage and inspire New Zealand parents to create delicious and healthy food for their children. As all parents know however, feeding children is often a relentless and challenging task, and it is with this in mind that Nicola Galloway has researched and written this book. All of the recipes have been extensively tested and selected not only for their nutritional value, but just as much for their ease of preparation and for their appeal to children. The book starts with an introduction in which the basics of nutrition for children are outlined, and which is designed to help parents easily understand how to make good food choices for families. The recipes begin with a chapter on first foods, with information on how to educate a child's palate from the first introduction of solids. This is then followed by chapters on breakfasts, lunches, snacks and party foods, dinners, deserts and drinks. Woven throughout the recipes is a lot of other important and useful information, ranging from how to cope with allergies and food intolerances, to introducing more vegetables into your children's diet.
As concern mounts about the long term consequences of the inadequate diet of too many New Zealand children, Cooking for your Child offers practical and clear advice on how to introduce children to healthy, real food, and how by doing this, parents can positively influence their children's eating habits for the rest of their lives. Heavily illustrated with outstanding images from photographer Daniel Allen, this is a timely and valuable book that deserves to find its place in the kitchens of all New Zealand parents who want the best for their children.
