A while back I wrote a review of the Chickin Feed Nutrition Tracker after seeing the mom-owner on the Rachael Ray show. Well now, in addition to offering a visible representation of what our kids need to make up a healthy diet, she’s now published the Chickin Feed Primer: A useful companion for modern families.
There are so many lovely things about this book:
- It includes nutrition info, but also encouragement to get moving and be creative (because as contributor Amy Handler says, “Imagination is a muscle.”)
- It looks just like a composition notebook (you know the black and white marble ones), down to the binding and the lined pages. It’s adorable!
- The cover tells us parenthetically (for use by chickins of all ages), and that is true. Whether you are trying to get yourself on a healthy regime, or if you are trying to convince your children to eat better and move more, this book will work for you.
- The Recipes! There are great suggestions and recipes for each meal and the extremely-important-to-kids snack time(s) as well.
If you like to read about nutrition, and want to make some easy family-friendly changes, I highly recommend the Chickin Feed Primer. Check out the Tracking Board as well while you’re looking around the site.
