The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kid's Favorite Meals

From the Author of The Sneaky Chef: How to Cheat on your Man in the Kitchen. This book will teach you how to sneak nutrient rich fruit and vegetable purees into the foods that kids love.

These healthy and delicious recipes couldn't come at a better time: Two new studies, published in New England Journal of Medicine, warn that obesity in children today is likely the result of a significant increase in coronary heart disease among adults in the near future. Fortunately, a report in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association noted that when kids improve their eating habits (including lowering their intake of saturated fats and increasing their consumption of fruits, berries, vegetables and whole grains), they can lower the risk of hear disease later in life.
