Free Book Giveaway: Raising a Healthy, Happy Eater

raising a healthy happy eater book

Does feeding your kids feel like a fight? Well take off your boxing gloves, and put on your oven mitts. Raising a Healthy, Happy Eater: A Stage-by-Stage Guide to Setting Your Child on the Path to Adventurous Eating is here to help.

And guess what? The Doctor and the Dad are giving away a free copy of this cool new book – keep reading to learn how you can win!

Raising a Healthy, Happy Eater is a fact-filled resource for parents who need to troubleshoot their children’s pre-existing food problems, as well as for those who simply want to make sure they’re raising a family full of good eaters.

It’s loaded (like a platter full of potato skins) with useful tips for when you’re:

  • wondering how to introduce your infant to solid foods
  • afraid your child might need feeding therapy
  • looking for ways to cope with food allergies
  • needing advice about introducing kids to exotic cuisines
  • sick of ordering only chicken nuggets and mac and cheese from kids’ menus
  • and lots, lots, lots more!

But be warned: with so much information in it, this book is not a quick read.

The authors – pediatrician Dr. Nimali Fernando and children’s food coach Melanie Potock – really know their stuff…and they’ve stuffed it all into a single book. The content covers kids of all ages, containing literally hundreds of tips that address every aspect of children’s eating you can image.

So it’s less like a light snack, and more like an over-the-top Las Vegas buffet.

But if you ever run into any concerns about your child’s diet, having all that information available to you is certainly a good thing.

Just know that you’re not going to be able to read this book cover-to-cover. Instead, we recommend using it as a reference guide to answer whatever food questions you currently have. (And maybe as a paperweight to keep your napkins from blowing away during picnics.)

We’ll write about one of the most interesting things we learned from Raising a Healthy, Happy Eater next week.

But for now, you can buy your own copy of Raising a Healthy, Happy Eater on Amazon right here, or you can visit the author website over here.

We think so! Although the book covers the ages of 0-6 most thoroughly, it includes so many general tips that are useful for feeding kids of any age (picky, vegetarian, or not). Plus, there’s a chapter for school-aged kids focused on lunchtime, including cafeteria and lunch-packing strategies!
