I hate this book. Obviously, I'm not trying to be objective, and I'm kind of in a bad mood as I'm writing this :(
I feel like this BOOK is deceptive!
The deal is, if you want to "sneak" healthy stuff into kids' foods (or, into your own food, as I was hoping to do)you have to make an actual major li...

Just reading the recipes made my stomach turn.
You want your kiddos to eat more fruits and veggies? You have to start them at the baby stage.
If you are trying to do damage control and educate your kid's taste buds at pre-school age forward, I still don't see how these recipes could work.

I prefer "sneaky chef" and use those recipes more often so far, but you can certainly get some great ideas here as well.
As a mommy to a 4 year old boy with autism and resulting food sensory (not to mention behavioral and extreme "fear of the unknown") issues, both books are real life-savers. I f...

When I first heard the buzz about this cookbook I was somewhat excited. I'm a cookbook junkie and love trying new things. I checked my local book stores, the book was sold out and had waiting lists! This knowledge only made the book more enticing to me. I happened upon the elusive book(on sale!)...

Seinfeld is so caught up in making sure everything her kids eat has vegetables in it, that she doesn't seem to care what their cholesterol is like! It seems like everything in this book is fried, and she always uses margarine, never butter. Margarine is TERRIBLE for you! Egad! I'm also baffled by...

Things I did not like about this book:
1. Children's cookbooks depress me.
2. Cookbook from the library? Ick.
3. Jessica Seinfeld? You know she really has a staff of gourmet chefs.
4. As with most cookbooks, this one is light on vegetarian and egg- and milk-free options.
5. (Most importantly) I'm not...

First, I feel I should confess that I have a Cookbook Compulsion. I LOVE reading what I refer to as my Kitchen Porn and I do have a collection of cookbooks that I like to peruse just for fun. One of my most treasured cookbooks is my Boston Cooking School Cook Book by Fannie Farmer. I will probabl...

I was curious about this book so I signed it out from the library. I'd read an article in Vegetarian Times a couple of years ago suggesting the idea of adding veggie purees to kids' foods, so I knew the basic idea wasn't all that original, but I liked the general concept and thought I'd check it...

As the parent of a child who eats nothing but pancakes and PB& J (on whole wheat, at least), I bought this book the second I saw it on the today show. Also, chocolate pudding loaded with avocado and only 69 calories shows some promise for me as well!
