LJ Reviews 2008 April #1

Burney (coauthor, Boost Your Child's Immune System ), a nutritionist, has blended the most recent discussions of superfoods and children's eating habits into an economical, easy-to-use text. She includes over 160 recipes, geared toward different age groups. Rather than disguising superfoods, as Jessica Seinfeld does in Deceptively Delicious , Burney takes on the difficult challenge of keeping the ingredients' integrity. In some instances, the author might be wise to follow Seinfeld's example: it's not likely many teenagers will find appealing the whole anchovies in her Hot Salad with Balsamic Dressing and Fresh Anchovies. Part 2 contains an excellent discussion of foods for immunity, and one of the more stiking aspects is "food to fight common illnesses" in Part 4. Most have heard of a tablespoon of honey for a sore throat, but what about garlic-infused honey to build the immune system or black currant and strawberry ice pops to boost vitamin C and soothe? Though the recipes are inviting and nutrient rich, one may find difficulty in introducing them to children. Recommended for larger public libraries that already have a focus on childhood nutrition.—Kristen Mastel, MINITEX Lib. Information Network, Minneapolis
