What a big Family of Food in a Small, Small World! It turns out there are several Cookbooks written by people somehow related to the Family of Food. The Sneaky Chef is one of them, written by, Missy Chase Lapine.
I ran across this book while looking for recipes for my kids. The book guides the chef on how to discretely put the nutrition back into food children will eat. As my kids get older, they are exposed to more kinds of food, and they are getting pickier. They are starting to ask for foods that are not so healthy. The kids are doing nothing wrong. Children choose foods that are the saltiest or sweetest based on eons of evolutionary development. Our job is to make sure these tasty foods are as good for them as they can be, especially if it turns out that bad foods are are all they will eat. The Sneaky Chef demonstrates techniques to make many familiar "Bad Foods" into Good Foods.
Providing healthy yet attractive food becomes even more important with older kids that are surrounded by junk foods every day. Which brings me to the next Recommendation... Sneaky Chef: How to Cheat on Your Man (In the Kitchen!): Hiding Healthy Foods in Hearty Meals Any Guy Will Love.
This book may be marketed to wives cooking for their husbands but it looks like a book for the big kid in me! Check out The Sneaky Chef Cookbooks for kids of all ages.
