The multimillion dollar food industry has used their vast resources to target parents, convincing them that it's difficult to feed their children good food. But here's the truth: parenting is difficult, but feeding your children simple, healthy, real food shouldn't be.
Food Babe Family is much more than your average family cookbook.
In this book, I show you all the ins and outs of our life as a Food Babe Family, walking you through how I feed my children (and myself!) on a daily basis. I dispel some great myths we have been fed about feeding children and help you spot ridiculous product marketing. You will learn how to navigate many sticky food situations that you will undoubtedly encounter at birthday parties, restaurants, and while traveling.
I give you the play-by-play on how to pack yummy school lunches that your children will love. I list out healthy store-bought swaps for ultra-processed snacks so that your children don't feel like they're missing out.
You'll find more than 100 delicious recipes that make it simple to put healthy, real food on the table that the entire family will love. From Pumpkin Muffins to Taco Salad Cups, Zucchini Pizza Bites, "Chick-Fil-A" Chicken Nuggets and Waffle Fries, and even Homemade "Oreos", let me prove to you that it's not only possible, but fun to eat real food without nasty ingredients.
Food Babe Family is jam-packed with all the tools, information, and recipes you need to feed your children in a way that will foster a love for real food and set them up for a life of healthy eating.
Our children are the future. Setting them up with the tools they need to thrive in a world that is overloaded with fast, easy junk food full of health-wrecking ingredients is a practice that's worth its weight in gold.
Named as one of the Most Influential People on the Internet by Time Magazine, Vani Hari is the revolutionary food activist behind foodbabe.com, co-founder of organic food brand Truvani, New York Times best selling author of The Food Babe Way, Feeding You Lies, and Food Babe Kitchen. For most of her life, Vani ate whatever she wanted - candy, soda, fast food, processed food - until her typical American diet landed her where that diet typically does, in a hospital. Despite her successful career in corporate consulting, Hari decided that health had to become a priority. Her newfound goal drove her to investigate what is really in our food, how it is grown and what chemicals are used in its production. The more she learned, the more she changed and the better she felt.
Encouraged by her friends and family, Hari started a blog called foodbabe.com in 2011. It quickly became a massive vehicle for change. She has led campaigns against food giants like Kraft, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Subway and General Mills that attracted more than 500,000 signatures and led to the removal of several controversial ingredients used by these companies. Through corporate activism, petitions, and social media campaigns, Hari and her Food Babe Army have become one of the most powerful populist forces in the health and food industries. Her drive to change the food system inspired the creation of her new company called Truvani, where she produces real food without added chemicals, products without toxins, and labels without lies. Hari has been profiled in the New York Times and The Atlantic, and has appeared on Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, CNN, The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and NPR. Vani lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband Finley and two children. Visit her online at: foodbabe.com
