It has become common knowledge that childhood obesity rates are increasing every year. But the rates continue to rise. And between busy work schedules and the inconvenient truth that kids simply refuse to eat vegetables and other healthy foods, how can average parents ensure their kids are getting the proper nutrition and avoiding bad eating habits?

As a mother of three, Jessica Seinfeld can speak for all parents who struggle to feed their kids right and deal nightly with dinnertime fiascos. As she wages a personal war against sugars, packaged foods, and other nutritional saboteurs, she offers appetizing alternatives for parents who find themselves succumbing to the fastest and easiest (and least healthy) choices available to them. Her modus operandi? Her book is filled with traditional recipes that kids love, except they're stealthily packed with veggies hidden in them so kids don't even know! With the help of a nutritionist and a professional chef, Seinfeld has developed a month's worth of meals for kids of all ages that includes, for example, pureed cauliflower in mac and cheese, and kale in spaghetti and meatballs. She also provides revealing and humorous personal anecdotes, tear–out shopping guides to help parents zoom through the supermarket, and tips on how to deal with the kid that "must have" the latest sugar bomb cereal.

But this book also contains much more than recipes and tips. By solving problems on a practical level for parents, Seinfeld addresses the big picture issues that surround childhood obesity and its long–term (and ruinous) effects on the body. With the help of a prominent nutritionist, her book provides parents with an arsenal of information related to kids' nutrition so parents understand why it's important to throw in a little avocado puree into their quesadillas. She discusses the critical importance of portion size, and the specific elements kids simply must have (as opposed to adults) in order to flourish now and in the future: protein, calcium, vitamins, and Omega 3 and 6 fats.

Jessica Seinfeld's book is practical, easy–to–read, and a godsend for any parent that wants their kids to be healthy for a long time to come.

  • Not Just for Kids
    Verified Purchase

    Thiis book is really an "innovative approach" to feeding the whole family healthy foods. As a diabetic, I've used the recipes that include whole wheats. When I've baked breads and muffins, I started adding an additional tablespoon or two of vegetables. Sometimes it's noticeable and sometimes it is not. Either way, the food is delicious and everyone enjoys it. The book has a beautiful illustrations. It also contains very informative and useful sections, such as, an explanation about the program, what items are needed in the kitchen, what to stock up in your pantry, how to puree and much, much more. I bought four of these books for my friends who have borrowed mine. They love it and I love it too.

  • Awesome ideas!!
    Verified Purchase

    Get this book if you have kids! It's easy to read a recipe once and then recall it if you don't have the page open. People swear they can't get spinach into their kids until I tell them I fed them brownies with spinach in them during a playdate. This book is great for increasing the veggie load or adding it in for kids that don't like veggies. Our faves are pumpkin pankcakes, burgers with mashed beans, and of course those brownies which are so good, I've been accussed of lying/joking to guests when I tell them what is inside.

  • Great way to add veggies to normal recipes
    Verified Purchase

    I got this cookbook to be able to add more veggies to our meals, We already like veggies but don't venture much from our comfort zone of 2 or 3 kinds. This will add variety and better nutrition to our diet.

  • Great family cookbook
    Verified Purchase

    I love this book! I've tried several recipes so far and they were all very good. My family as well as I really liked them. Mrs. Seinfeld did a great job providing instructions on how to prepare the vegetable to deceive your family and lots of great advise and ideas from herself and others mentioned in the book.

    I never thought I would need this cookbook...then I discovered my 20 month old is super picky. My husband and I also wanted some new recipes to incorporate into our own diets. This is perfect! My son will eat most everything I have made using the recipes. And the price was awesome! Overstock has beaten every other retailers' prices on every book I've ever bought online. Love it!
