I was given a copy of Food Fights by Laura Jana and Jennifer Shu. I knew right away it was going to be a funny, smart book giving parents insightful information about feeding their children and yet they would arm themselves with humor and stories along the way. The byline is: Food Fights: Winning the Nutritional Challenges of Parenthood Armed with Insight, Humor and a bottle of ketchup! Oy, only a mom would write that. When my 2nd son was born the only way we could get him to eat meat was with ranch dressing. Oh, and telling him that every single meat was chicken. Roast beef, nope chicken. Hamburger, nope chicken. Moms of children all get the food fights that go on when your children are very young. Here’s a how to book on handling it with the grace and dignity of a mom.
What the book Food Fights does it teaches you to pick your battles. Is it worth it to fight over x? These smart doctor moms know. How do you handle throwing food? Should you give heaping helpings? (uh…no!) How to eat out with your small kids or grocery shop! Should your kids go to nap with a bottle? (not unless you want them to have cavities) They even give us the what to do with a child who has lactose intolerance. Oh how I wish I had this book when my first born was a baby! I have lactose intolerance and never diagnosed it til my son was in the 7th grade and noticed he had issues too. Doh!
This is a must have book for any new parents. So in addition to What to Expect When you’re Expecting they should also have a book on how to handle Food Fights. Want to win one? Enter the rafflecopter below and good luck on winning it! Here’s a short excerpt:
