Parents will do almost anything to get their kids to eat healthier, but unfortunately, they've found that begging, pleading, threatening, and bribing don't work. With their patience wearing thin, parents will give in for the sake of family peace, and reach for kiddie favorites-often nutritionally inferior choices such as fried fish sticks, mac n' cheese, Pop-sicles, and cookies. Missy Chase Lapine, former publisher of Eating Well magazine, faced the same challenges with her two young daughters, and she sought a solution. Now in The Sneaky Chef, Lapine presents over 75 recipes that ingeniously disguise the most important superfoods inside kids' favorite meals. With the addition of a few simple make-ahead purees or clever replacements, (some may surprise you ) parents can pack more fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants in their kids' foods. Examples of Sneaky recipes include: No Harm Chicken Parm Power Pizza Incognito Burritos Guerilla Grilled Cheese Brainy Brownies Health-by-Chocolate Cookies Quick fixes for Jell-O(R)

Dinner time

Kids of the picky persuasion will balk at being forced to eat, or even look at, a vegetable. The mere sight of something green on my daughter's plate can, quite literally, bring her to tears. And no amount of bribing, coercing or pleading can change the situation. If this is your child, or if you simply want to expand your good eater's already healthy repertoire, two books are guaranteed to cut down on mealtime stress—and provide some culinary inspiration. Missy Chase Lapine, author of The Sneaky Chef is very sneaky indeed. Who knew you could hide cauliflower in the ubiquitous mac and cheese? Or turn a bland burrito into an appealing vegetable fiesta? If you're at your wit's end, and out of ideas, The Sneaky Chef offers hope.
