With just a few simple rules to follow, any parent, no matter how busy and stressed they may be, can provide healthy food for their family day after day, and have more time left over, not less.

The book includes over 100 recipes as well as weekly menus and detailed shopping lists. These are the keys to saving time and money. Specialised recipes cover lunchbox options, vegetarians and vegans, gluten-free, parties and picnics. In addition, informative yet accessible text explains to parents the basics of proper nutrition and invaluable ways of 'marketing' healthy food to kids so that they choose vegies over KFC!
