Super Food for Superchildren

Delicious, low-sugar recipes for healthy, happy children, from toddlers to teens

By Tim Noakes, Jonno Proudfoot, and Bridget Surtees

  • Paperback
  • £20.00

Delicious, real food for children and families, low in sugar and refined carbohydrates

There is so much dietary advice out there, much of it conflicting, that it can be difficult for busy parents to make sense of it all. Medical doctor and sports scientist, Professor Tim Noakes, chef and long-distance swimmer, Jonno Proudfoot, and dietitian Bridget Surtees, a specialist in paediatric nutrition, cut through the clamour to provide clear, proven guidelines and simple, delicious recipes to feed your family well, inexpensively and without fuss.

Following their phenomenal, record-breaking success with The Real Meal Revolution, the Real Meal team set out to rethink the way we feed our children. The result, Superfood for Superchildren, challenges many ingrained dietary beliefs and advocates a real-food diet for children - from toddlers to teens - that is low in sugar and refined carbohydrates. Their advice is solidly underpinned by a critical, scientific interrogation of the the children's food industry.

By combining the latest peer-reviewed scientific evidence with straightforward, mouthwatering recipes, most of them for the whole family, Superfood for Superchildren shows clearly how to provide your children with the best possible nutrition to help them to grow up healthy and happy.

The Part-time Vegan

Sarah Flower
Authors:
Sarah Flower

Many people are intrigued by the current trend for veganism. This book is for all those who want to 'have a go' - whether it's simply to improve their diet or lighten the load on the planet - but who don't have the time or the inclination to follow a vegan diet full time. There are numerous glossy vegan cookbooks (and authors) extolling the benefits of everything from making nut milks to replicating the taste of cheese. This book is different. The recipes in The Part-time Vegan are straightforward, feature readily available ingredients and are, of course, delicious, because they are based on the best simple, natural flavours that nature has to offer. As well as providing recipes for midweek and weekend breakfasts, lunches and main meals, the book covers why being a part-time vegan is a great approach to health - when we balance vegan recipes with high-quality sources non-processed meat, fish and dairy. After all, variety is key to a healthy diet.
