Trying to raise your Kids to eat and enjoy healthy foods? Good luck! It's a constant battle, especially on a tight budget. Often it seems that the most affordable "happy meal" options are laden with fat, sugar, salt, and chemicals, and almost devoid of nutrients. Think again. Think $3 Meals Your Kids Will Love.

Drawing on advice from a wide range of real moms and dads across America who have children ranging in age from toddlers to teens, Ellen Brown presents 250 tried, true, and tasty recipes-from snacks, soups, pasta, pizza, and all-American favorites to Hispanic and Asian dishes and guilt-free desserts. None take more hands-on time than listening to the evening news-and all cost less than $3 per serving for your whole meal.
