From the Author
GOT KIDS WHO EAT? You need this book!
People think because I'm a food writer my kids eat gourmet every night. All I can say to that is, Ha! Like most parents, I'm tired, I'm busy, and I don't have time to fight with my kids over whether they eat their broccoliand why should I, anyway? On the other hand, I never want to get to the point where my daughter thinks carrots are alien life forms. I decided to write this book to help other busy parents like me muddle through all the nutrition hype, supermarket displays and mystery containers in the fridge, and prepare nutritious meals with little time and effort.
In this easy-to-read book that offers tons of tips and more than 30 recipes, you'll learn: * What really matters in kids' nutrition. * Why kids don't eat their vegetables, and how you can encourage them to eat more. *How to avoid power struggles at the dinner table. *How to assemble ready-prepared supermarket foods into delicious, instant meals. *How to make "mix and match" dinners that accommodate varying tastes. *How to get kid goo and other stains out of clothes and countertops. *How to shop with kids ranging from preschoolers (distract them), to teenagers (trade shopping duties for car keys). *How to organize your kitchen to make food preparation, cooking, and cleanup easier.

I gave the book 4 stars out of 5 because of the constant suggestion to buy pre-cut fruits and vegetables at the market-- I think this would add up to very high grocery bills over the course of the year. Just use a food processor and shred cabbage (or whatever) that way. I would also have liked to see a few more recipes and snack ideas, but the ones that are included are very good ideas.
If you like this book, I recommend "Keep Your Kids Busy: The Lazy Way." It is a treasure-trove of creative kid projects that I look forward to sharing with my daughter someday!
Thanks for a great book, Virginia, I am preparing "Monkey Bread" for my daughter's Christening party this Saturday!
