From The Publisher:
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 com
Chocolate cake laced with beets, Blueberry Oatmeal bars with carefully hidden spinach, and Pancakes fortified with sweet potatoes are just a few of the crafty recipes in this cookbook inspired by the desire to feed children vegetables without lengthy dinner-time battles. The author, Jessica Seinfeld, is the wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld. With full-color photographs and nutritional advice.
Great book to make typically unhealthy food in a healthy manner by adding healthy ingredients. Very good for kids who dont enjoy eating their greens, etc. This way you can give them food they enjoy and 'deceptively' throw in the healthy stuff.

I bought this book to not only help me get my picky teenagers to eat more vegetables, but to get their picky mom to eat them too. I have the taste buds of a 5 yer old it's true. I really try to like vegetables so much, I know I should, but I don't. I've made myself eat just a little even though I don't, so I thought maybe this book would get me to eat more. Well the whole family are eating more since buying this book. I've tried 3 recipes so far and we loved them. We've had Italian Meatloaf with carrots on page 79, Macaroni and cheese with butternut squash page 104 & Burgers with cauliflower on page 111. Everything was great we really enjoyed it and I am really happy that we are eating more veggies. What's really good about this book also is every recipes has a picture, the pages can be wiped off & everything is wrote out step by step making it super simple. I would recommend this to everyone.
