”While parents hope their children will eat healthy foods, the reality of hectic schedules, confusion about the latest nutrition news, and power struggles at the kitchen table can lead to frustration,” she writes. That’s an understatement.  In addition to recipes, Ms. Antine offers strategies to help parents “be the facilitators of health, not the no-fun rule enforcers,” and provides sample weekly menu planners that include breakfast, lunch, dinner, and morning and afternoon snacks. There are even week-at-a-glance gluten-free and vegetarian menus. Among my favorite features are charts that compare the book’s homemade recipe to store-bought, specific brand versions of things like chicken nuggets, chicken soup, mac ‘n’ cheese, Fruit Roll-Ups, and chocolate milk.”
