Eat This Not That! for Kids!: Be the Leanest, Fittest Family on the Block!

It's no secret that children are getting fatter: 17% of this country's youth are overweight or obese, and the number of diabetic children has nearly quadrupled in the past thirty years.

Now, to help combat the problem, David Zinczenko, editor-in-chief of Men's Health, and co-author Matt Goulding have created Eat This, Not That! for Kids.

This must-have guide for concerned parents offers detailed analysis and nutritional tips on thousands of the most popular food choices for kids.

Covering the best and worst options available at the most popular restaurants in the country as well as the healthiest—and most harmful—foods in the supermarket aisles, if kids are eating it, this book is probably analyzing it.

Everything Pasta chosen just for you!

A funny thing about kids and pasta..Did you ever notice that
children prefer pasta with just butter and salt?  Or, they only want plain marinara sauce over the pasta?  Most kids hate chunky style sauce of any kind on pizza or pasta.  Make the Italian Sauces for the adults, and please the kids by keeping it very simple for them!  They have not yet learned to appreciate seasonings yet..  A lot of kids would prefer a can of Chef Boyardee to a fancy Italian Pasta Feast!  They will outgrow it, don't worry!

Dinners Make a Difference

(Family Features) - Whether you're sitting down to a macaroni and cheese dinner or a three-course meal, the simple act of eating dinner with your kids has a powerful impact on the whole family.

Almost two decades of research by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University has consistently found that the more often kids eat dinner with their families, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs.
Studies show that kids who have family dinner five times a week are:

  • 45 percent less likely to drink and 66 percent less likely to do drugs.
  • More likely to get A's and B's in school.
  • More likely to think their parents are proud of them.

"The power of the family dinner comes not from the food on the plate but from who's at the table and what's happening there. The emotional and social benefits that come from family dinners are priceless," said Kathleen Ferrigno, CASA's Director of Marketing and head of CASA Family Day - A Day to Eat Dinner with your Children. "Having dinner as a family is one of the easiest ways to create routine opportunities for parental engagement and communication, two keys to raising drug-free children."
Even with busy schedules, it's easier than you think to have a regular family meal. Here are some tips from CASA and Stouffer's:

  • Plan meals together.
  • Make a date - schedule it on the calendar.
  • Cook together.
  • Unplug during dinner and talk.

Save time making dinner with family-friendly entrées such as Stouffer's Easy Express Cheesy Garlic Lasagna. This dish of freshly made pasta layered between mozzarella cheese, seasoned beef and a rich garlic tomato sauce is ready in only 18 minutes. While it's cooking, make a Creamy Parmesan Romaine salad and a simple Fruit Salad for a delicious dinner the whole family will enjoy.
Remember, dinner makes a difference, so be sure to take your seat at the dinner table often. For more tips on raising drug-free kids and creative ideas for family dinners, visit these websites: www.letsfixdinner.com and www.casafamilyday.org.
