Book Giveaway: “Super Snacks For Super Kids”

by Bettina Elias Siegel on November 12, 2012

Well, I’m really spoiling my readers with book giveaways lately – it seems like we’ve been having almost one per week!  I hope you’re enjoying them as much as I enjoy getting to read all these new kid/food books.

Today I’m giving you a chance to win Super Snacks for Super Kids.  I first learned of this book when its creators asked TLT readers (via my Facebook page) to join in a Kickstarter campaign to make the book a reality.  All proceeds from the sale of the book benefit the Wellness Committee in the authors’ school district of Mineral Point, Wisconsin.

Amazingly, the Kickstarter campaign earned $10,000 in 30 days and the final product is really nice.  This hardback book has over 100 pages of vivid color photography featuring 60 different healthy snack ideas for kids, from Apple Oat Bars to Fruit Pizza. My kids found it on my desk and were thumbing through it, letting me know what they wanted to try.  It’s great to see a community come together to support childhood wellness, and the rest of us benefit by getting lots of new snack recipes!

For a chance to win the book, just leave a comment below by  Tuesday, November 13th at 6pm CST.   You can tell me why you’d like to win or you can just say hi.  I’ll use a random number generator after the comment period closes to select one lucky winner and if you comment twice (e.g., to respond to another reader’s comment), I’ll use the number of your first comment to enter you in the drawing.   I’ll email you directly if you win and I’ll announce the winner on TLT’s Facebook page, too.

Good  luck!

 [Blogger disclosure:  As with most of my book reviews, I received a free copy of this book for my perusal.  However, I never accept any other form of compensation for the book reviews you see on The Lunch Tray.]

My daughter has great eating habits, but we host our friends’ kids at our house frequently, and often have difficulty coming up with foods they will eat, so I’d be interested to find some new ideas for that.

Hi,

I’d like the book because I’ve gone through every snack idea by now and now that the kids are older, they tend to want to eat junkfood (sigh, all my teaching for almost naught) so I’m hoping that some tasty (yet healthful) snacks will distract them from that.
