NEW: Snack Healthy, Snack Happy

The new cookbook and cooking videos are focused on healthy, kid-friendly snacking. To support kids’ healthy eating, researchers from the Guelph Family Health Study (GFHS) partnered with the Helderleigh Foundation and George Brown College Food Innovation and Research Studio (FIRSt) to create recipes that help make even the tiniest bites count.

Make Ahead, Big Batch and Slow Cooker

Meal preparation can be especially difficult during the winter when the days are shorter and it’s cold outside. These recipe ideas for make-ahead, big-batch and slow cooker meals will help make meals easier during the long winter months.

Family Friendly Recipes – Kids in the Kitchen

This collection of recipes was created just for kids! Getting your kids into the kitchen early can help you teach them how to choose healthy foods and is a great way to spend quality time together! Research shows that children who are involved in food preparation are more likely to try new foods.

Fill Half Your Plate with Fruits & Vegetables

One of our goals at the Guelph Family Health Study is to help your family develop healthy eating behaviours, including eating more fruits and vegetables. For this recipe book, we have partnered with Half Your Plate to provide you with tips, tricks and recipes to increase your family’s fruit and vegetable intake.
