Missy Chase Lapine was like so many mothers, dealing with children who are incredibly picky and won’t eat anything that is good for them. So, how do you get you kids to eat food that is good for them, but let them eat what they like? Simple, you have to be “Sneaky”.
The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals is a cookbook full of recipes that that take kids’ favorites (like macaroni and cheese) and sneaks in things like veggies. They supposedly won’t notice a thing.
Lapine is a mother of two and no one new to healthy living. She has a line of natural baby products, helps publish food and health magazines and is a teacher of Culinary Arts at The New School in NYC. Along with her cookbook she is beginning The Sneaky Chef cooking classes, demonstrations and workshops.
What is amazing is that most of the recipes involve a variety of purees. For example, Lapine has a recipe for brownies with a purple puree of…….spinach and blueberries. Yes….I know….spinach and blueberries? Neighborhood children ate them up.
