Book Description

7 July 2006
In this follow-up to her fantastic "Wonderfoods", nutritionist Natalie Savona selects 60 fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins and seeds that are vital for your child's growth, mental development, energy and ability to fight off illness. In fact, with the addition of just water, your child could thrive on eating just these wonderfoods alone. Grouped in chapters relevant to specific body systems: Energy, Tummy, Allergy, Calm, Skin, Defence and Growth, each wonderfood is introduced by its health benefits and vital nutrients, along with expert nuggets of information. Did you know that the beta carotene and vitamin C in sweet potato can help with conditions such as asthma and eczema? Running throughout the book is an invaluable cross-referencing index, highlighting which wonderfoods can help in more than one area. For every wonderfood there are at least two delicious, easy recipes that will appeal to children and the whole family as well as sample menus and lunchbox ideas. A special symbol highlights recipes that children can help to prepare so that they can feel involved in their own diet and learn to be more adventurous in what they eat. If, from a young age, children experience a wide variety of foods, flavours and styles of cooking they are less likely to be fussy eaters and, most importantly, they will take in the full range of vital nutrients needed to keep them fit well and happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy 10 July 2006
I have only had this book 3 days and already don't know what I did without it. As well as concise easily digestable information in the chapters the recipes are simple and easy to make. Non of the recipes are anything like the Annabel Carmel ones which take at least 3 hours to prepare. I particularly love the names of the dishes. I successfully managed to get both my children to help make and eat Blubbery Fool because of the name. They have refused point blank till now to eat blueberries in any shape or form. The whole family has enjoyed making and eating the Vampire Pate. This book will not be living on my shelf but on the side in my kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy and fun to make ! 31 July 2006
By Cha Cha
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is for whoever, who, like me, loves the idea of cooking something healthy with oat or brown rice or sesame oil and then forgets why they were bought in the first place!! This book gives you lots of great ideas to make meals children will look at and even try or eat!

So far, I have made the chocolate smoothie, my son loved it, my daughter didn't (she's 5, he's 7). My son was extremely fussy until he was 5 1/2 so I am hoping this book is going to turn my daughter into an eating machine!! :)

I cooked the "fish in bed" tonight and they both loved it, I should say we ALL loved that one. For pudding, I had made the coconut rice with nectarines and sesame seeds. I really liked it, the chidren ate the nectarines and the sesame seeds and tried the rice and everybody noticed I had tried to make something special and looked grateful!! :)

The good news is it wasn't much hard work at all and the washing up was easy to do as no fat was used in the cooking.

This book is full of ideas and information and it is a lovely book to look at as well(great photos).

I want my children to eat most things and I like persevering. Not always easy but I won't give up!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book! 13 Nov 2007
I love the way the food book is sorted by food; often when the kids complain about eating a certain item, I'll bring out the book and we'll look up the chapter with the item in question and read about all the healthy properties in it, and why it's good for you. Amazingly enough, it seems to be having a good effect with my teenager as well as the younger kids! The recipes are easy to prepare, and interesting (love the tomatoes stuffed with sardines). I can't recommend this book highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book! 6 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Spotted this little book in our local library and borrowed it. Our grand-daughter often has tummy problems and mild asthma and eczema occasionally turn up. Thought a few interesting recipes might help. I was very impressed so purchased a copy to give to my daughter.........however, so far it's still here so I have now ordered another one for their house!
The book is great, it's only small (but very thick, having 320 pages.) It's packed with tasty and healthy recipes which she is loving. The book is divided into chapters giving info and recipes for/entitled; energy, tummy, allergy, calm, skin, defence and growth. Within these sections there are smaller ones giving the health benefits of individual fruits vegetables, rice, pulses, nuts and meats followed by recipes that include these items.
A shame it seems to be out of print now but well worth getting a second-hand copy (or two)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something every parent should read 13 Feb 2008
By K. Taylor - Published on
This is very much like Savona's Wonderfoods book, just targeted at kids. Again, the theme is utilizing natural foods because of their amazing wealth of nutrients. The categories in this book are energy, tummy, allergy, calm, skin, defence, and growth. Each category includes a handful of natural foods that aid in that benefit and a few recipes in which the food can be used. The recipes are lovely, easily made, and enjoyed by kids (though personal tastes will differ, naturally--my son isn't much for fish). As with Savona's original Wonderfoods book, I recommend this version as much for the education included as I do the recipes.
