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)

Tyler Florence, Chef and Author"As both a father and a chef, I can tell you that it's sometimes easier said than done to get kids to eat right. But I've got to say, the Sneaky Chef series makes keeping your kids eating habits on the right track not just infinitely more manageable, but fun at the same time." Natalie Morales, Today Show Host"Moms and dads if you're at your wit's end trying to get your kids to eat healthy... well, fret no more! Finally, it's "The Sneaky Chef to the Rescue." As the mother of a very picky eater, the only way to get my son Josh to eat his veggies is to sneak it, and Missy's recipes are not only creative and delicious, they are a lifesaver for this often over-worried mom."
