It's not really geared to picky eaters, so don't look for solutions here.

Format: Paperback
This cookbook by the editors of Parents Magazine offers over 100 dishes that the whole family can enjoy, from breakfasts to dinners and desserts. Even though I no longer have younger children at home, I found plenty of recipes my grown-up family can enjoy. The appeal to kids is mostly in the simplicity and presentation of the food with lots of ideas for making it fun (using cookie cutters to create shapes for sandwiches, cheese, and fruit, for example).

The cookbook has lots of color photographs to inspire any cook, and offers recipes for breakfast, lunch, supper (including side dishes), snacks and drinks, and treats/desserts. I liked the suggestion that most kids wake up hungry and aren't as likely to be fussy about what they eat so breakfast is a good meal to introduce new foods. The other thing I liked about this cookbook is that "kid-friendly" means the recipes use basic healthy ingredients that can be found at any grocery store and very few processed foods, which makes it adult-friendly as well. The emphasis is on using whole grains, lean meats, lower sodium ingredients, and fresh fruit and vegetables.

Lunch recipes geared to get out of the peanut butter and jelly, mac and cheese rut include a great Kiddie Cob Salad featuring diced turkey, cheese, chick peas, grapes, avocado, and red leaf lettuce that can be enjoyed as finger food. Other recipes encourage ways to include vegetables and fruit in a dish such as Butternut Squash Casserole that is a version of macaroni and cheese with a healthy twist, and Pumpkin Penne that has canned pumpkin added to the pasta. Some of the salads include the addition of fruit.

I was running out of ideas for my picky eater. Most recipes are probably what you'd make already, but cuter or with slightly healthier variations. It's not really geared to picky eaters, so don't look for solutions here. There's a lot of recipes that left me wondering, "If my kid would et that recipe, why wouldn't I just make it from my own recipe.". It does have nice pictures and good nutritional information, which were helpful.

I purchased this book a couple months ago so I could learn how to cook kid-friendly meals and this really delivers! All of the recipes are easy to make and have ingredients that are easy to find at the grocery store. Unlike a lot of my cookbooks I am still using this one!

I am so pleased with the two recipes I've tried, and can't wait to try more! The low maintenance lasagna (with shredded carrots) and taco casserole were both SO easy and quick to prepare....and provided several meals that the whole family ate! Couldn't be more pleased with what we've tried so far.
