Reviews Rated 3 out of 5 by sweetleaf from Too much prep I set out to make a potato soup and it ended up taking me an entire afternoon of pureeing, chopping, boilling and dicing. I was exhausted and defeated in the end, only to yield about 6 bowls of soup.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Karimah from Incredible Such a simple yet inspirational little book Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by mojomau from Practical but lots of work Tons of prep to hide the veggies but it works. A good gift for expectant mothers. Rated 3 out of 5 by Karen from Great ideas but lots of prep This book has better ideas then recipes. I think there is too much preparation required for each recipe but I do like the tips and tricks offered. I can incorporate those tips and tricks into my every day cooking without using the actual recipes. I have used several of the recipes in the book.
They are were all delicious. Whe stuck on time I would buy babyfood for the veggies. Rated 4 out of 5 by Tricia from Lots of Preparation! First off, you need to get into the mindset that there is a lot of preparation for the recipes in this book. BUT, the payoff is big. My kids are less picky now but a few years ago, my goodness. However, the conversations can be like this, "did you like those? Some were downright NOT hidden. But if you introduce them at the right time when "greenies" aren't so much of an enemy, you could possibly get away with it.
FYI - I follow her instagram and her website, much respect to her.

Nice, easy, healthy, delicious recipes and sense of humour. I saw it on the Oprah show a while back and it is one way to eat healthy and surprise even the adults that don't eat their veggies to like them. It is one great book! Why does it cost two to three dollars more at Chapters than Amazon who is always less?
Chapters is big enough I think to compete with low prices just as Amazon does. I bought it because I struggling with my teenager, and wished I had something even remotely close to it when she was younger. The only trick is hiding from an older child, especially if the child spends as much time in the kitchen as I do! Extra Content. Editorial Reviews "An elegant plan.. View all 26 comments. Jan 07, Jessica rated it it was ok Shelves: cookbooks. 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. The other con is that most of the recipes take between 45 minutes to an hour, and that's even if you have your purees done in advance. When I'm hustling to make dinner before people start snacking, I do not have time to boil, blend, stir, shape and fry rice balls.
LET'S BE FRIENDS.
On the pro side, however: the turkey meatloaf is in fact one of the best meatloaf recipes I've ever found. Several of the recipes really are great, and she gives you some good ideas for how to plan meals, and how to slip veggies into your regular recipes. For instance: pureed butternut squash or cauliflower can be mixed into macaroni and cheese, and the squash is also great with anything with a marinara sauce.
Cauliflower mashed with your potatoes makes them lighter and gives them a good flavor without being obvious. I would recommend checking this book out from the library, reading through it, and maybe taking some notes, rather than buying it. Jul 10, Elizabeth rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Desperate parents of picky eaters. Shelves: cookbooks. Things I did not like about this book: 1. Children's cookbooks depress me. Cookbook from the library? Jessica Seinfeld? You know she really has a staff of gourmet chefs. As with most cookbooks, this one is light on vegetarian and egg- and milk-free options.
Most importantly I'm not sure I agree with the whole sneaky food thing. Fruits and vegetables are SO good. Kids should just want to eat them if you offer them enough, right? This deception bothers me. The stocking up thing sh Things I did not like about this book: 1. The stocking up thing she suggests. Stocking up never works for me -- I just get so wasteful.
I can only buy exactly what I need that week or I might as well just take our pay check and let it mold in our fridge. Things I really liked about this book: 1. I really liked the nutrition part in the beginning. Who knew kids were suppose to be fed three veggies and two fruits a day? Or that you can leave the peels on the apples for the puree? I actually really like Jessica Seinfeld. All the puree stuff? Every Sunday night?
And the labeled bags? She is totally OCD, in a you-can-totally-be-my-friend kind of way. This book has great, common sense suggestions. Multiple courses. Letting toddlers serve themselves. Veggies with deceptively healthy dip while you're making dinner. A lot of the recipes looked good, too. Mar 05, Kelli Oliver George rated it it was ok Shelves: kitchen-lit. I will probably never actually cook something from Fannie Farmer's selections, but it is still fun to read. I also have my grandma's first ever cookbook she purchased as a newlywed back in the 40s.icgadete.tk
And I own a copy of Average Jane's family cookbook. Also, I totally scooped up Sophia Loren's family cookbook with excitement. The list goes on because I enjoy reading cookbooks. Is it worth the hype? Probably not. However, it is truly a fun, easy cookbook that is worthy of a Picky, Childish Palate.
Dude - EASY.
The recipes are very simple to follow and she does a great job with explaining the steps for preparation. Also, this book won me over with its adorable anecdotes, telling quotes and whimsical illustrations.

I would like to make one, small criticism of this cookbook - the recipes are definitely built for folks who like bland food. I still think most Americans underestimate the toddler palate. We often give Arun food that is too spicy for him.
