Food Fights Book Review and Giveaway

As parents we frequently deal with all kinds of battles whether they be battles at bedtime or fights over dinner. And believe me I have battled both. However while I currently have no help with bedtime battles, I still fight them nearly daily with my 9 year old I can make a suggestion for food fights with kids that frequently happens.

The book Food Fights by Laura A. Jana, MD, FAAP and Jennifer Shu, MD, FAAP is about(taken from the description):

In Food Fights, 2nd edition, the authors tastefully blend the science of nutrition and pediatrics with the practical insights of parents who have been in your shoes―offering simple solutions for your daily nutritional challenges. Whether you’ve got an infant, toddler, or young child, Food Fights promises entertaining, reality-based advice on:

▪ How to pick your battles (and arm yourself accordingly)

▪ Whining and dining, throwing food, and other dietary distractions

▪ Heaping helpings, TV dinners, fast food, and other nutritional minefields

▪ Eating out, grocery shopping, and travel

▪ The 5-second rule

▪ Drinking and dozing, juice, soda pop, and other classic drinking problems

▪ Sick kids, vitamins, body weight, allergies, constipation, spitting up…and so much more!

This revised second edition also includes new chapters on healthy breakfasts, what’s lacking in snacking, and supermarket sanity, and serves up important guidance on making sense of package labels and choosing foods wisely. Add the cornucopia of resources such as recipes for success, a nutrient primer, and phone apps that help families stay on a tech-savvy track to good nutrition and this new and improved edition of Food Fights is guaranteed to leave you satisfied.

I really love the book because while my sons normally will eat anything my youngest occasionally decides that he randomly doesn’t like something so the tips in the book really helped me to get him back on track with his eating. I really think this book is great for first time and even 3rd time parents because there is always something to learn.
