Please don't be put off by the title in any way - this book is packed with great information and ideas for feeding growing kids of either gender. There is health information (nutrition, caloric needs, etc.) as well as brilliant strategies and teen-friendly recipe ideas. Some of the best ones are about getting the teenage boys to fend for themselves (in a healthier way than they might otherwise) by providing the "tools" - fresh fruit, sandwich makings, ingredients for smoothies - so they can make fast afternoon snacks that will get them through to their next meal.

Also good are the scaled up, easy recipes for when you end up feeding not only your own teenage boy, but a bunch of their friends, too! (Teammates, band members, etc.) I have recommended this book to my friends whose kids are entering the adolescent years - it's great for the teens to read, too!

Excellent for the family! Oct. 18 2007
By Leigh - Published on
Format: Paperback
I wish my family had this book when I was growing up. The recipes aren't just for teenage boys; they're healthy and easy recipes for the whole family. There are good tips scattered throughout the book on making kitchen life easier, as well as insight into how teenage boys should eat. There are also great tips on how to get guys to eat healthier, like put healthy food where they will find it! Excellent for anyone who is looking to help her family eat healthier, even without teenage boys.

Good ideas for "boy food" Sept. 27 2011
By Bookworm - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Much more than a collection of recipes, this book gives practical information and advice on making yummy, healthy food that teenage boys (and the rest of the family) will enjoy (or come to enjoy, if they're currently more focused on takeaways and snack foods).

It covers everything from what to stock your cupboards with, ideas for saving time, food you can prepare in advance so that hungry teens have good stuff to eat after school, and creative ways to encourage them to eat healthy, fresh food. Good ideas for how to involve boys in making food, whether it's tasty snacks and "minimeals", or the family meal,and how to help them develop useful skills for looking after themselves.

The recipes give ideas for everything from breakfast, lunches, and drinks to snacks and meals, with a refreshingly broad range of options and ingredients. Great ways to try some new cereals and grains, and ideas to give a different flavour to some familiar (and possibly boring) family meals. I can recommend the Any Day Muffins, and I love the idea of getting them 90% ready the night before and cooking them quickly in the morning! What a start to a school day...

I was expecting something different when i purchased this book. It was way too many recipes and not enough info on the numbers, i.e. Calories a day ,weight, etc. my grandsons are too thin and i wanted a book on calories a day, and lists of healthy foods to put on muscle, it was not in it. My opinion only.
