We’ve been sitting on this giveaway for 10 weeks now. Why? Amanda & Sarah are having a hard time giving it up! They have been passing the book back & forth trying the recipes on their families with great success. They’ve both purchased copies for themselves, so we have the copy for one of our lucky readers!
I will be honest. The Meal Makeover Moms, Liz Weiss & Janice Newell Bissex’s newest cookbook is geared towards caregivers of kiddos from ages 2 through high school age. This is not a sexy soup/canning & preserving/curing/food history book but a no non-sense cookbook that is chock full with real advice, tips and tricks on how to get your children to eat a healthy diet while not skimping on taste. All 150 easy-to-make recipes have nutritional information (both authors are registered dietitians) and have been tested by their fan base of families (we were almost a taste-test family until Miles’ food allergies were “discovered”). The recipes range from snacks to deserts to crockpot meals to breakfast to vegetarian and more! There is a chapter with guest food blogger’s recipes and 50 tips and tricks from fellow moms on feeding their children.

Recipes from the book:
According to Amanda: “I have enjoyed the book as the recipes are very easy, simple and quick to make. Most of the ingredients listed are things you already have in your kitchen. I also like that they have the break down of nutritional information for each recipe. Many of the recipes are ones your family has probably been making for a long time but with a little twist. For example, their chili recipe I made for the Soup Swap 2011 event. The kids LOVED it! Our family loves chili but I never thought of adding sweet potatoes, it worked, everyone loved it and we’ve already made it again!”
