Most parents start out wanting to raise healthy eaters. Then the world intervenes. In Kid Food, nationally recognized writer and food advocate Bettina Elias Siegel explores one of the fundamental challenges of modern parenting: trying to raise healthy eaters in a society intent on pushing children in the opposite direction. Siegel dives deep into the many influences that make feeding children healthfully so difficult-from the prevailing belief that kids will only eat highly processed "kid food" to the near-constant barrage of "special treats." Written in the same engaging, relatable voice that has made Siegel's web site The Lunch Tray a trusted resource for almost a decade, Kid Food combines original reporting with the hard-won experiences of a mom to give parents a deeper understanding of the most common obstacles to feeding children well: - How the notion of "picky eating" undermines kids' diets from an early age-and how parents' anxieties about pickiness are stoked and exploited by industry marketing- Why school meals can still look like fast food, even after well-publicized federal reforms- Fact-twisting nutrition claims on grocery products, including how statements like "made with real fruit" can actually mean a product is less healthy- The aggressive marketing of junk food to even the youngest children, often through sophisticated digital techniques meant to bypass parents' oversight- Children's menus that teach kids all the wrong lessons about what "their" food looks like- The troubling ways adults exploit kids' love of junk food-including to cover shortfalls in school budgets, control classroom behavior, and secure children's loveWith expert advice, time-tested advocacy tips, and a trove of useful resources, Kid Food gives parents both the knowledge and the tools to navigate their children's unhealthy food landscape-and change it for the better.

Thoughtful, practical, and fearless
With meticulous research and easy, conversational prose, Siegel makes an irrefutable case for changing the broken food system that feeds our children.
Siegel is a leader and a veteran in the movement to feed our kids well, and Kid Food is a primer on what we'll need to do to get that done.
Siegel does more than explain why 'carnival food' is now the everyday norm; she lays out the specific ways to approach food more positively at home-and in the larger community-to foster change.
Gorgeously written, heartfelt, and deeply compelling. Everyone who cares about kids must read Bettina Siegel's fabulous Kid Food.
Fascinating and enlightening. I will never look at a kid's menu or baby food pouch the same way again-and I'm infinitely grateful for it.
Kid Food will help you see how the Food Giants have co-opted our eating habits, and how changing the way kids eat is our best shot at leveling the playing field.
Fascinating and funny. A must-read for anyone who cares about our children's future.
Powerful, encouraging advocacy. Kid Food equips parents with the wisdom and strategies they'll need to raise and feed healthier kids.
