Eat This, Not That for Kids

A kid- and family-friendly guide to outsmarting the food industry for a healthier lifestyle.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Eat This, Not That! for Kids is the family-version of the mega popular, Eat This Not That, which focuses on getting adults to make smarter choices when it comes to eating and dining out. With childhood obesity and diabetes rates skyrocketing, authors David Zinczenko, editor-in-chief of Men's Health magazine, and co-author Matt Goulding felt the need to create a pediatric version of their bestseller in order to help parents improve the health and eating habits of their children.

Eat This, Not That! for Kids offers detailed analysis and nutritional tips on thousands of the most popular food choices for kids. Covering the best and worst options available at the most popular restaurants in the country and in the supermarket aisles, the book includes lists on the worst kids meals in America, the not-so healthy, healthy kids' foods, the dos and don'ts of the soda and juice beverage-world and the foods that your children should eat everyday.

Eat This, Not That! for Kids is a guide, rather than a diet plan, for parents who are concerned about the eating habits of their kids.

DIET and NUTRITION

Eat This, Not That! for Kids contains a wealth of information on how to provide smart and healthy choices for your children.

Restaurant guides that rate chain restaurants on their healthy and kid-friendly options are included, as well as colorful and easy-to-read layouts that explain how to pack a healthy school lunch and how to make the right choices in the cereal aisle. The book also contains important information on how to select smart lunches at the school cafeteria and how to cook at home so that the whole family can enjoy healthy, balanced meals together.

EXERCISE
