Real Food, Healthy, Happy Children

KATH MEGAW

In Real Food, Healthy, Happy Children, Kath Megaw offers a research grounded yet easy-to-grasp guide on what to feed children at the different stages of their development. A long-term advocate of low-carb eating, her mission is to convert parents and children away from the processed, nutrient-poor foods that surround them in everyday life and to win them over to ‘real’, natural food. Marrying practicality with warmth, science with common sense and the experience of a healthcare professional with the intuition of a mother, Kath’s approach to how children should eat extends beyond the body-centred focus of nutrition.

‘When meals incorporate taste experiences, social interaction and emotional connections, along with high nutritional impact, the result is altogether healthier, happier, children.’

The Low Carb Solution for Diabetics

KATH MEGAW & VICKIE DE BEER

When working mother Vickie De Beer’s life changed forever, she and leading paediatric dietician Kath Megaw set about ‘The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics’ – and, in the process, developed an arsenal of the most effective systems and day-to-day strategies for practically dealing with diabetes.

Part emotive journey, part cookbook and part medical reference, and all bundled up in the care and love of devoted parents, The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics is the fruit of their combined findings – at once personal and professional, and essential reading that effectively ‘closes the gap’ for families coping with diabetes.

Underpinned by the knowledge that time is one of today’s most precious commodities, Vickie’s meals are simple to shop for, effortless to prepare and, above all, packed with all the essential nutrients growing bodies and minds need for optimal health. Grouped seasonally and covering all days of the week, from Monday through Sunday (and not forgetting, sauces, treats and drinks), The Low-Carb Solution for Diabetics offers a wide array of choices for every meal of the day and to satisfy all those hunger pangs in between – a happy solution for both busy moms and even busier kids!
