Eating healthy is the buzzword for Healthy to the Core! This is an apple cookbook for kids with the purpose of making apple recipes healthier. With growing concerns about obesity and diabetes, even among young people, it's important to be mindful of the amounts of added sugar.

Eating real food gets children and teenagers on the road to a lifetime of healthy eating habits and a great start on good health. Help them enjoy apples without all the added sugars. Traditional apple desserts are often loaded with excess sugars and sweeteners. Many apples are quite sweet by themselves.

In this apple cookbook there are recipes using no sugar or low sugar in a wide variety of food categories. If more sweetening is needed, other alternatives to the traditional high-sugar, white flour apple recipes are given. There are no artificial sweeteners used and a very limited amount of convenience foods is used.

Healthy food practices are the basis for the recipes. The author gives the top 10 healthy tips she considers the most important food practices for healthy living. From these she focuses on what she calls THE BIG FOUR:
