The unhealthiness of juvenile diets has generated new concern about excessive fast food and nutritionally suspect mass-produced meals in children's daily fare. Dieticians Bissex and Weiss have written The Moms' Guide to Meal Makeovers specifically to show just how to go about enhancing the nutritional value of everyday home cooking. Despite the title's somewhat sexist assumption (Are dads by nature uninvolved in, ignorant of, or averse to their offspring's good nutrition?), the book presents relatively simple ways of bettering recipes' nutrition by substituting lower-fat and lower-sodium ingredients and by always paying attention to labels. Each recipe has a table comparing fat, protein, carbohydrate, sodium, and fiber levels of both the standard and improved recipes. Mark Knoblauch
