Healthy Child Healthy World

Need some tips and recipes for getting your kids to eat healthy? Healthy Child Healthy World recently started a new program called "Eat Healthy", that makes food fast, frugal, fun and eco-friendly! With tips and ideas from experts like Myra Goodman, cookbook author and co-founder of Earthbound Farm (the world's largest grower of organic produce), and Raising Baby Green author Dr. Alan Greene, and recipes from celebrity moms such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Meryl Streep and the "Renegade Lunch Lady" chef Ann Cooper, Eat Healthy is a comprehensive, easy-to-read online recipe and healthy food guide. It's filled with easy, delicious (yet kid-friendly) recipes; essential reading and advice about today's most worrisome food issues; food and nutrition videos; and even downloadable pocket shopping guides like "Healthy School Lunch" and "Healthy Formula & Food," so you can always keep the wisdom of Eat Healthy with you.

Other Eat Healthy resources include: Tips to take to the grocery store, including the most and least pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables and the best healthy, kid-approved snacks Eight simple steps for making healthier, greener food choices for your family's diet Quick and easy recipes for eating right on a budget A checklist of fish that is safe for children, teens and all women of child-bearing age How to limit your child's intake of food additives

Eat Healthy is also an interactive space for parents and caregivers to share their recipes and tips, too. Your child's favorite snack could be the answer for another mom in search of fun, healthy mealtime ideas. Your low-cost, eco-friendly storage idea may be just the solution for the dad who just purged all his plastics. Enjoy!
