Feeding your child wholesome and nutritious meals can be a parent's greatest challenge if you happen to have a picky eater. You may find it easier to let them devour that hot dog for breakfast just so you can tell yourself, "at least they ate!". Sometimes the food looks too healthy for your child, or the colors and textures turn them off. There is a solution to making your kid feel like they are eating the unhealthy food they love while still getting proper nutrition into their stomachs. One of the reasons some kids won't eat is because they are not part of the cooking process, so there isn't a connection with the meal in front of them. Even though cooking with your child can be time-consuming and very messy, it will teach them a valuable skill, and they are more likely to eat what they have cooked. If you allow them to make the decisions of what ingredients to put in the food, that is even better. You will find that your child will want to take part in more meals if they are one of the 'chefs.' Each of the recipes found in this book has activities that your child can do on their own to help out with the preparation. The rule of thumb with each one is "the messier, the better." Cooking is a creative outlet and doesn't follow a neat and clean path, so getting cheese on your face or flour on your clothes is all part of the process. You may want to invest in a special apron and chef's hat for your child to make the experience even more fun.

Does your child decide they don't like a food before they've even tried it? Do they say 'Yuk' to foods they used to eat happily? Would they live off chips and ice-cream and never touch a vegetable again if given the chance? Are mealtimes driving you nuts? It's easy to think that children are naturally just fussy eaters. Yet, without realizing it, we are actually creating many of the problems ourselves with the things we do and say to our children around food. The right thing to do isn't always as obvious or as instinctive as you might think. Common habits like using pudding as a reward for eating the main course, or pestering them to eat their vegetables, actually encourage ? not discourage ? fussy eating! This little book tells you how to start again. It won't give you complicated child-friendly recipes or clever ways to sneak vegetables into meals ? just easy-to-follow, easy-to-remember rules to help re-programme your child into a happy, healthy, adventurous eater. Recommended by a leading NHS Specialist Paediatric Dietician.
As a child Stephanie Lucianovic lived for years on grilled cheese and created an elaborate system for disposing of revolting food involving bookshelves, holiday centerpieces, and, later, boyfriends. She agonized not over meeting her future in-laws, but over the peaches they served her. As an adult, this picky eater found herself in the most unlikely of circumstances: a graduate of culinary school who became a cheesemonger and then a food writer. Along the way, she realized just how common her plight was. It wasn’t surprising to discover that picky eating is an issue for millions of kids, but who knew there are even support groups for adults who can’t overcome it? Yet remarkably little is known about the science of picky eating, and cultural and historical questions abound. Are picky eaters destined to ascend to a higher plane of existence, and what happens when picky eaters fall in love or go to restaurants? How can you tell if you’re a “supertaster”? How does the gag reflex affect pickiness (and what secrets do sword swallowers impart to help overcome it)? Suffering Succotash is a wide-angle look into the world of picky eating, told by a writer who’s been in the culinary trenches. With wit and charm, through visits to laboratories specializing in genetic analysis, attempts to infiltrate the inner workings of a “feeding” clinic, and interviews with fellow picky eaters and adventurous foodies young and old, Stephanie explores her own food phobias and gets to the bottom of what repulses us about certain foods, what it really means to be a picky eater, and what we can do about it.

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.

Written by Liz Weiss and Janice Newell Bissex --- the dietitians behind the popular cooking blog, Meal Makeover Moms' Kitchen --- the book features 150 easy-to-make, family-friendly recipes as well as 50 moms' secrets for getting picky eaters to try new foods. Every recipe in No Whine with Dinner was tested by moms and tasted by kids. With recipes like Smiley Face Casserole, Grab-and-Go Granola Bars, Piping-Hot Peanut Butter Soup, Fruity Chicken Kebabs, Sweet Brussels Sprouts, and Twice Baked Super Spuds, the dietitian duo aims to bring fun flavors and better nutrition to families everywhere. After the publication of their first cookbook, The Moms' Guide to Meal Makeover and the launch of their website, MealMakeoverMoms.com, Weiss and Bissex established themselves as two of the nation's leading experts on family nutrition. The idea for No Whine with Dinner came from a survey of nearly 600 moms who identified "picky eaters who whine and complain" as the number one obstacle to getting their children to eat healthy, well-balanced meals. Filled with beautiful photographs of their recipes --- breakfast, lunch box, soups, slow cooker, casseroles, snacks, and desserts --- and adorable photos of the hundreds of kids who tested their recipes, No Whine with Dinner is a must-have cookbook for families who crave flavor as well as good health.
