Description

Product Description

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.

A book written by an American housewife who never (1) learnt to cook or eat well, with (2) obsolete and WRONG nutritional advice, (3) weird proportions and (4) totally useless from the point of getting your kids to eat vegetables.

1. The author admits they never go out to restaurants. Probably never tried anything better than diner food. What she cooks for her family is even less inspiring than school cafeteria. I was hoping to find some good recipes that would incorporate pureed vegetables well, but there is nothing I would feed to my family who know better than chicken nuggets, burgers and cheese sticks.

2. Almost every recipe calls for low fat this or low fat that. The author states that you have to use "low fat or nonfat dairy" which is an old advice dating back to the 1960-ies, disproved by recent scientific research. (Full fat dairy is now recommended for children and adults). She also uses flavored yogurts (sugar!!!) and margarine spread!!! (horror!)

3. Even just by looking at some recipes I can see the proportions are off.

4. The amount of vegetable puree in each recipe is so miniscule, it’s negligible from nutritional point of view. ½ cup of vegetable puree per dish for 4 people means that each person will get 1/8 cup of vegetable. That’s one tiny floret of cauliflower or a teaspoon of peas. If, according to the author, a person has to eat 1.5 to 2.5 cups of vegetables per day, your child will have to consume about 16 full servings (say, of mac-n-cheese) a day. )))) Good luck.

Also, most of the nutritional value in vegetables comes from vitamins. Some recipes call for 3-4-5 hours of cooking (stewing), which would totally destroy any good stuff that originally was in that ½ cup of (already cooked) broccoli puree to start with.

Overall, the concept of adding vegetable purees to your dishes is great, and the idea of freezing and storing puree in small jars is good. I would go for 1-1.5 cups of puree in dishes like pasta sauces.

Otherwise the book is useless and in many cases just bad obsolete advice.

Received my order intact, in a timely fashion, wrapped in "kraft" paper and scotch-tape. The whole experience was retro. Had forgotten book was originally published in 2007. How far we have traveled technologically, and graphically. The book arrived as promised and publisher on the ball with shipping and timing. Could not be more pleased with this vendor. Book is as I remembered and full of sage advice with the exception of some dated dietary ideas. Mostly, just "what the grandma ordered".

All this is a basic recipe book (no glamorous or easy to use recipes) that recommends what pureed veggies you should use. Save yourself some money and puree veggies, freeze in ice tray containers and add a few to whatever you''re making for dinner. Taste to make sure you haven''t made the pureed veggies noticeable and serve. That''s pretty much what this book will tell you.

I have children that are extremely picky. I can''t figure out how in the world to get them to eat vegetables, or better yet, try them. So for now, I''ll sneak them in their food. My favorite is the grilled cheese with a layer of pureed squash or pumpkin. Or the mac and cheese with the same. The kids don''t notice (unless you over do it). I feel better that at least they are getting a better intake a vitamins and minerals without an argument.

This little book has revolutionized the way we eat in our home. I am so thankful that I found it.

First of all, lots of reviewers are very passionate about the whole philsophy of how we feed children. There are many who feel strongly that "hiding" vegetables isn''t a good idea and that children should eat vegetables "as they are." I respect that opinion-- but that is NOT a fair review of this book. That is a separate philosophical issue that you should resolve in your own home and for your own family.

Deceptively Delicious states openly, on the front cover in fact, that its purpose is to get children to eat good food. That''s it. So, to review this book, I think its fair to focus on how well it meets its stated goal. In other words, I''m going to review the specific recipies and the strategies:

RECIPES:
I have made every single recipe in this book. They are mostly "YUMMY!" with a couple that are just okay. The standouts, by far, are: spagetti with meatballs, chicken nuggets, soup, macaroni and cheese, chocolate pudding, burgers, and grilled cheese.

THE STRAGETIES:
I am a mother who works full time, and I am an average cook. No special kitchen skills. I make my purees on Sunday nights after the little one is asleep, while I chat in the kitchen. It does take an investment of time and a willingness to grocery shop and prepare food. However, the stragies have truly revolutionized the way I think about food and children. I still offer "traditional" vegetables in "pure" form, but I also have changed my thinking about what goes into my child''s body and how to best nourish him. Every dish, no matter how simple, contains wholesome ingredients and that makes me feel good.

Bottom-line: there are lots of reviewers who may judge these "deceptive" strategies, but I''m willing to bet my kiddo has eaten more broccoli, cauliflower and carrots this week than most kids eat in a month!

My toddler actually has no problems eating vegetables, but it''s nice to find creative ways to increase intake whenever possible. I''ve only used a few recipes so far, but I love this book for its organization and presentation. The information is organized so clearly and the style of the book looks like old Betty Crocker manuals from the early 1900''s (but without the rampant sexism! Win!). All of the relevant information you could want, from charts on how to prep vegetables; how to stock your pantry and kitchen; nutrition guidelines; tips from other parents; I could go on and on. Every household with toddlers and children should have this book.
