Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food

ninit

Of course I saw Jessica Seinfeld on The Oprah Show and the next day I was rushed to go to Page One to buy the book. Lucky me, it was only 1 copy left. I love the book. The pictures inside are so pretty, helpful, and fun.

Despite the controversy surrounding recipe claims, Deceptively Delicious offers detailed information about both the recipes and the benefits of the major ingredients. I like the idea of sneaking vegetable purees.

For example, my son, Aldebaran really loves eggs but he hates spinach. So I made Green Eggs (with spinach), taken from the recipe in page 62. Guess what? he loves it!

It’s all about strategies, Mama. Let’s add vegetables to lots of kids’ favourite meals. So we don’t need to forever beg them to eat their vegetables.

    I was one of the first people that got the book as well. Even though so far Ayla never had trouble eating vegetables, she loves it as much as chocolates. It’s meat she dislikes. The book is definitely worth a try. If only I can fix my food processor.

    Hehee… pernah bikinin Brownies Bayam-nya utk murid2 & para sepupu yg masih SD… seandainya mereka tahu itu dipakein bayam&wortel, belum tentu mereka makan se-gahar itu :P

    didn’t know about this book though i already learn the tricks the hard way. untungnya sih naia justru malah suka ama sayur & buah, jadinya gampang. biasanya kalo ada yang dia gak suka, gue bikin jadi pasta sauce trus dimakan ama pasta, karena dia sukaaa banget ama pasta.

    Duuhh udah lama pengen buku ini sejak nonton Oprah tahun lalu, browsing-browsing dapetnya di amazon.com. hiks, belum pernah belanja online sampe ke luar negeri.
    Sebenernya ini versi “baru” dari buku yang sudah keluar duluan, isinya hampir sama, judulnya The Sneaky Chef, di Indonesia adanya dimana ya? ada yang sudah beli?
