Cook book for picky toddlers

Ladies- for any of you who have a picky eater in the house- I have the cook book for you! It is called Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld (yes, the wife of Jerry) anyway- it is all about sneaking veggies into our kids diets with out them being any the wiser! Ever since the book arrived from Amazon last week my son has eaten more veggies- without his knowing -than he ever has...the whole concept is combining veggies with like color kids food- for example I added butternut sqush puree to mac and cheese and they loved it- sweet potato puree to pancakes and they were devoured- I even made rice krispie treats healthy by adding flax meal and using whole wheat ceral- it has just given me all of these little tricks to make kids food healthier and has made mealtime a lot less stressful!

I have it too and so far so good....I have also used her idea of putting a "crudite" on the table while making dinner and have been shocked to have them eating it. Lately by the time we get to dinner they have eaten all their veges. (Baby carrots, red peppers, and grape tomatoes are the favorites)
