About The Book



Need help getting supper on the table?

       …. with Suppertime Survival® it couldn’t be simpler.

We provide more than 70 complete suppertime meals, including over 100 delicious recipes. These meals are designed so that even older children can get involved in their preparation: they’re fast and easy, and they’ll appeal to even the pickiest eaters.

Suppertime Survival was the first cookbook ever to help families follow Canada’s Food Guide by providing food group servings for every meal and tips to balance out the meal. While the food guide is different today the idea of providing balanced meals to families hasn’t changed.

With Suppertime Survival, you’ll have time to make supper a family affair—and an occasion to establish healthy eating habits early in life that will last forever.

Taste preferences and eating habits start to form early in life and are strongly influenced by family and peers.  It is important for parents to serve as good role models for healthy eating and to make healthy choices available.

Making the transition from meat-based meals to plant-based vegetable and whole grain-based meals.

Even small changes to include more plant-based foods in your daily meal plans can provide health benefits.  Experiment with plant-based protein foods such as lentils and navy, kidney or black beans.  Include plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains (bulgur, couscous, quinoa, brown rice) in your meals.

What if there is a vegetarian in your family?

Be careful to plan meals that provide adequate amounts of essential nutrients. Accomplish this by including a variety of vegetables and fruits, whole grain breads and cereals, legumes, nuts, seeds, soy and fortified dairy alternatives.
