For this recipe book, our focus is preventing food waste, while helping parents and children eat lots of fruits and vegetables.  We partnered with our friends at the Guelph Food Waste  Research Group, The Helderleigh Foundation, and George Brown College’s Food Innovation and Research Studio (FIRSt) to create this book. Love Food Hate Waste Canada, an initiative of The National Zero Waste Council, has also generously shared their food waste reduction materials to bring this book to life.

Whether foods in your household are discarded because of a busy schedule, a picky eater, or a lack of enthusiasm for leftovers, the recipes and tips in this book are good for your health and your bank account.
