From the Inside Flap:

You want your kids to eat healthy and stay fit, but as a working woman, you don’t have the time to eat right yourself, let alone monitor every morsel your child consumes. In Healthy Lunchbox, Dr. Rallie McAllister offers you a realistic solution to your working-mom dilemma: Get fit together!

With the expertise of a renowned physician and the sharpened sensibilities of a mother of three, Dr. McAllister imparts wisdom and advice that any mom can manage:

· Learn nag-free techniques for convincing your picky eaters to try new foods.
· Find out how your own weight and eating habits mold your children’s future health, not to mention their waistlines.
· Learn how you can protect your children from the nutritional wasteland of the after-school hours.
· Discover why dragging your kids along to the grocery store or turning them loose in the kitchen might actually be a good idea.

Of all the people in your children’s world, you have the most powerful influence on their eating behaviors. That’s why it’s so important to make fitness a family affair. Healthy Lunchbox shows you how to take advantage of your nutritional clout and transition your family into a healthier lifestyle.

Inside, you’ll find:

Smart snack ideas—Dr. McAllister’s split-second snack ideas are a surefire way to keep snacking healthy. Plan them, don’t ban them!

A grocery shopping guide—Learn to navigate your local grocery store aisle by aisle—and to steer clear of nutritional black holes.

The Breakfast Cereal Report Card—Get the stats on your kids’ favorite cereals and find out if you might be better off serving them a bowlful of the cardboard packaging!
