Lea’s book helps parents to monitor the growth of their children, to think about what ‘being healthy’ really means to their family and how to buy and prepare the right types of foods to build sustainable energy, maximise growth and improve mental and physical performance.

Issues such as determining which cereals are the most sustaining?; which fat contains the most polyunsaturated v’s trans fat content?; which snacks and takeaways contain the least fat and sugar? are just some of the topics covered.

Menu plans, shopping and label reading information along with recipes will help parents to build structure back into their child’s eating. For parents wanting more practical tips and product information each chapter ends with links to appropriate articles on Lea’s website.

Healthy kids, happy lives will be available from May 15 th in NZ bookstores and online from Amazon we hope you will find this a helpful resource now and if sports nutrition also interests you then look out for Lea’s next book From Playground to Podium due out later this year.
