We all want our children to lead happy, healthy lives. We know they need to eat well and be active in order to avoid the lifestyle diseases we hear so much about these days, such as obesity and diabetes. Parents want to do what's right, but many are unsure of how to get started. In response to this growing need for information, the CSIRO presents a step-by-step healthy eating and activity plan for families, based on extensive research. Find out: what are healthy foods for kids; how to encourage kids to be active; how to motivate your kids to make changes that will last; how to organise yourself as a parent to make healthy living a reality. Packed with easy-to-follow advice and more than 100 delicious recipes for stress-free family cooking, The CSIRO Wellbeing Plan for Kids is your complete guide to helping your children on the road to a lifetime of good health.

This is a fantastic book, because it addresses a variety of factors relating to raising healthy kids - not just food, like most books of its genre, but also exercise and 'screen time'. It has some great reference tables, such as 'Sometimes foods, once a week foods, everyday foods', as well as talking about what foods fits into the basic food groups and what 'a serving' is for various age groups. It also has practical charts to fill in to chart meals, activities, screen time, and you can download extra copies of these charts from the CSIRO website.

The book is grounded in evidence based material, and has a variety of tasty and easy to prepare recipes for all sorts of occassions, from snacks, to school lunch, to weeknight dinners. The main criticism I'd have is that it only addresses food allergies and intolerances briefly, with very general suggestions for ingredient substitutions, whereas in my experience these are widespread issues, and would make the recipe part of the book less helpful for many parents.

However, overall, this is a great book that I have been recommending to all my friends!
This is exactly the kind of book I've been looking for. Yes, we all know what to feed our kids (more or less), but this book also talks about how to best sort out food issues with a fussy eater, how to train your children's taste buds, portions for differnet aged children and how much activity children need at each age. It is a fab blend of science and down to earth practicality. I highly recommend it.
