Here are 150 mouthwatering recipes along with all the advice you need to keep your family healthy and energetic.

Eating together as a family makes for stronger families and more responsible children. Hope Ricciotti of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and her husband chef, Vincent Connelly, tell you their secrets for making family meals a time of joy and good eating. Dr. Ricciotti gives the latest nutritional advice for babies, children, and adults, so you know what your family's needs are. She includes advice on how to get the whole family up and exercising. Easy and fast-to-cook recipes (such as Pan-Fried Chicken Sandwich with Avocado and Jack Cheese) make meeting everyone's nutritional needs a delicious delight. The authors suggest how to entice even picky eaters (Oven Baked Tacos) and provide recipes where vegetables can be put as side dishes for children or combined for a more sophisticated dish, suiting everyone's tastes (Rice Noodles with Peanut Sauce and Broccoli). They finish off dinner with luscious desserts, such as Real Chocolate Pudding.
