Children and Food

The Food Our Children Eat
by Joanna Blythman

subtitled 'How to Get Children to Like Good Food'

is an excellent starting place for the family and children where food issues have not become too tricky.

Another - unfortunately out of print - book which I found particularly helpful when I was trying to change family eating away from the divide of children's food and adults' food is

The Unique One-Recipe 3-Meal Family Cookbook
by Sara Lewis

Amazon link here

This family cook book is about making meals for adults, children and babies or toddlers from one ingredient set by extracting food at different flavour and texture levels.

It is not so much the particular recipes which I found helpful as the idea of just cooking one set of ingredients for everyone and extracting baby, toddler and child helpings before sauces, flavourings or spices were added or became too strong for young palates.

That Sugar Film
featuring Damon Gameau
who eats only foods considered to be 'healthy' as an experiment on himself

Amazon link here

Good for introducing the topic of hidden sugar in foods and the health effects of sugar for teens from around age 12 and adults. It is also used by schools in Australia and New Zealand - and I believe in the UK also.
