In The Wholesome Child, leading pediatric nutritionist Mandy Sacher provides creative and effective strategies and recipes designed to get even the fussiest of eaters to try new, whole foods.

Presented in eight easy-to-follow steps―Swap to Whole Grains, Reduce Sugar, Increase Vegetables, Boost Protein, Healthy Fats, Balance Fruit, Rethink Dairy, and Avoid Nasties―Mandy’s expertly researched and informative guide is accompanied by more than 140 delicious, easy-to-make whole food recipes and menu planners. All recipes adapted for the North American audience using imperial measurements, have been inspired by a genuine passion for healthy eating and tested by real families.
The Wholesome Child provides meaningful answers and proven solutions to the questions and challenges that are raised time and time again in Mandy’s workshops, in parenting forums, and by her clients and friends. It’s an invaluable companion that will help parents support their family’s health journey while bringing fun and enjoyment to meal times.

"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!" —Alexia Brue, cofounder and CEO of Well+Good
