This book doesn't sit in my bedroom, so I can't call it "my bedside book", because it's much more practical on my kitchen counter!
This book doesn't sit in my bedroom, so I can't call it "my bedside book", it's much more practical on my kitchen counter, so I affectionately nicknamed it my "new counter book”.
When becoming parents, some reconnect with breakfast, others see their fruit bowl much fuller than before, and still others adopt a he althier lifestyle. We want a he althy child and we would do anything to get there. Also, we become aware of the impact of food on our own he alth. In short, we seek to develop good eating habits mainly because for our children, we are their first models. Difficult task? Not when you have in your hands an enlightening book like that of Stéphanie Côté, a passionate nutritionist who takes the he alth and well-being of children and food to heart.
His book guides parents to develop good eating habits in their children. Because "feeding your child is much more than filling your plate", parents have eyes full of questions to ask.the grocery store or at me altimes. Stéphanie Côté therefore presents forty ways for parents to promote good nutrition while teaching their children the impacts, consequences and pleasures of nutrition. Advice and practical tips abound. We are surprised to write them down to subtly use them in our cooking. Also, the data and examples, often gathered under the title “Material for reflection”, amaze and help to raise awareness and respect our new “good resolutions”.
We learn that more soft drinks are sold in Canada than milk and juice and that these “liquid candies” contain on average 10 teaspoons of sugar per 355 ml can. Visual examples that are easy to image are preferred (a 50g serving of cheese=3 AA batteries, 75g of meat=a deck of cards, 125ml=a hockey puck, computer mouse or tennis ball), because we remember them well. Marvellous! A complete book, pleasant to read with a never moralizing tone, but rather dynamic and which, moreover, gives us a joyful boost in the kitchen. The author also shares with us about forty delicious recipes to inspire us more and put into practice what we have read.
