"I'd always thought food was pretty straightforward: you're hungry, you eat; you're not, you don't. Then I became a mother." So begins Betsy Block's humorous, life-changingbook on the ultimate of all makeovers: improving the familymeal. But how is her plan even possible when eleven-year oldZack's favorite food is Halloween candy; little Maya is sopicky that she'll only eat cut squares of white bread; and her husband's idea of a gift is an electric fryer?Determined not to give up the good-food fight, Betsycomes up with a creative ten-step makeover plan. She consults experts, visits farms, and shows how she and her family manage the pitfalls, struggles, and triumphs of eating well when busy schedules, surreptitious lunch trades, snack machines, permissive grandparents, and willful temptations intervene. With helpful charts, food lists, recipes, tips, and suggested culinary and farm programs for kids, "The Dinner Diaries" chronicles one family's intrepid ten-month challenge to change the way they eat-one forkful at a time.
