As a mom herself, Elizabeth Ward, MS, RD, knows that the last thing busy parents need is a one-size-fits-all approach to healthful eating. In her book, MyPlate for Moms: How to Feed Yourself & Your Family Better, she decodes the Dietary Guidelines and provides great recipes for a balanced and nutritious mealtime, while addressing how to prevent “portion distortion”. This isn’t just a book for your children’s nutritional needs, it has great information for the whole family!
From the Eyes of a Parent:
It was a relief to find a nutrition book that understands that all families are different and has information that I can incorporate into my family’s daily routine. This book is easy to follow and really breaks down the nutrition information to make it simple to understand! Elizabeth Ward’s use of ChooseMyPlate.gov really demystifies how much and what my family should eat.
MyPlate for Moms includes:
- Physical Activity Guide.
- 50 Great Snack and Meal Recipes.
- Nutritional Breakdowns of Food Types.
The Icing on the Cake:
Ward uses the Government approved ChooseMyPlate.gov, which illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthful diet, using the common image of a place setting for a meal!
