"I loved Mandy Sacher's new book. . . . As a pediatric nutritionist and mother of two, Mandy works with families to improve their eating habits. She goes beyond the usual tips to offer genuine insights into helping your family eat better." —New Idea "SO much more than a recipe book. . . . Simple advice, simple recipes, all wrapped up in one gorgeous, easy-to-read, inspiring book." —Tubu Kids "The Wholesome Child will be my new go-to book for families with allergies! As a dietitian, I see the gap for families seeking a wholesome, allergen-free way to cook and nourish their growing family. This book is not only easy to read, but easy to apply. The 8-step plan along with colorful photos will empower new families to eat less refined foods and use alternative grains and a variety of fruits and vegetables with their families. Personally, our family is a huge family of warm lunches, so I thoroughly appreciated her Top 10 Thermos Meals." —Wendy Jo Peterson, MS, RDN and co-author of Born To Eat and the Mediterranean Diet Cookbook For Dummies "Mandy Sacher’s The Wholesome Child is a must-read for all parents navigating food choices. Mandy helps parents understand healthy food and equips them with approachable, delicious recipes. And The Wholesome Child contributes to the wellness revolution by helping us raise children to feel good about food and their bodies, which is preventative medicine at its best!" —Alexia Brue, cofounder and CEO of Well+Good
