From the Publisher:
Low GI eating has advantages for everyone-including healthy, growing children. By raising blood glucose and insulin levels more gradually and evenly (which means food is more filling), low GI diets reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity. An essential guide to raising and nourishing children of all ages, The New Glucose Revolution Low GI Family Cookbook has ideas for healthy meals for every time of day, from breakfast to dinner to dessert. You’ll also learn strategies to help kids make smart food choices, how to plan balanced diets and substitute high GI foods with low GI alternatives, and information for feeding kids with food allergies or sensitivities. With low GI varieties of family favorites like mac ’n’ cheese and spaghetti with meatballs, this cookbook also includes many other tasty, kid-tested recipes, including, baked crispy fish pieces, French toast with strawberry and banana topping, cheesy vegetable patties, frozen berry yogurt popsicles, homemade popcorn, and easy tomato tuna pasta. Providing your family with the nutrition they require can be a challenge when you’re confronted with a range of ages and preferences. But with The New Glucose Revolution Low GI Family Cookbook, you can feed your whole family nutritious and enticing meals while learning the healthy eating habits of the GI-for a lifetime of health and vitality.
