Let me start off by giving you a little background as to why I chose this book. I'm a busy mom with a 2 year old that has some minor developmental delays. He doesn't like the taste/texture of certain foods, just like he doesn't approve of putting his feet flat on the floor. EDIS and I have goals in place to help him overcome a number of challenges. One of them is nutrition, that I started on well before his IFSP was in place. I'm not a crazy no-sugar-at-all mom, (i have a chocolate addiction pretty bad). I just want my son to eat better.

I love this book because it has great tips and strategies on how to make packaged foods (or any food) healthier. I'm not getting into the debate on hiding fruits and veggies in your child's food. If you don't like it, fine. Don't do it. I understand it can't be done forever. That's why I have a system. My son is 2. He has no concept of why he needs to eat fruits and veggies. He loves apples and will go get them out of the fridge by himself. All he knows is that they taste good. He has no idea that they are full of vitamin C, fiber, potassium, phenols, and are low in calories. With that being said, my system is to start of by hiding the veggies in purees, then increase them noticeably, then move to chunks, and then eating them all on their own. I have said this to many people. I am educated mother on my child's nutrition. I offer him fruits/veggies a number of times (it took him about 5 times to even try a kiwi), I let him help, I let him pick items out in the store, and I try to educate him on various fruits and veggies and praise him when he chooses to eat some.

In reference to the book, it has increased our awareness of what is in food. I am now lowering our sugar and sodium intake.

If you are new to The Sneaky Chef and aren't sure where to start or which book to get first, I'd start with this one. She has streamlined the make-ahead purees and eliminated the lemon juice, for example, in the white and purple purees. New to this edition is make-ahead healthy pancake, cookie, and cake mixes, which, in addition to the recipes in this book, you can substitute as ingredients in other cookbook recipes you may have - a definite plus as you will know what is in the mix!!

She also includes quite a few tips for maximizing your time with shopping for groceries, stocking your pantry, and cooking.

Does the idea of cooking alot of recipes seem overwhelming? Then, here's what I would do:
Read through the first section. Then, make your purees. Once that is done (which you can do with a friend or two-she tells you how to have a pureeing party), skip to chapter 7, Quick, Healthy Fixes For Your Favorite Packaged Foods and, try these. Once you've built confindence in these, THEN go back to the other chapters and try some other recipes. And, be sure to try the Elvis Breakfast Ice Cream. Some recipes such as the Shrimp Teriyaki Kabobs, Miso Noodle Soup, and Coconut-Crusted Chicken are sophisticated enough to appeal to the adult pallet (for those who are trying to get ADULT "kids" to eat more veggies too.

Although, there is no index, the Table of Contents is thorough enough to be used in lieu of an index. If you want more sophisticated recipes for adults, try The Sneaky Chef: How to Cheat on Your Man (In the Kitchen!): Hiding Healthy Foods in Hearty Meals Any Guy Will Love

I needed fast, tasty, and healthy. This one delivered all! I made Speedy Brownie Cookies and had my brother-in-law, the ultimate chocoholic, taste them. He had no clue that they had healthy ingredients. My 7-yr-old son, also a chocoholic, called them "crazily awesome." I will be using this one forever!!

I enjoyed this cookbook. I don't use a lot of convenience foods or packaged foods but this gave me some great tips on making things healthier such as adding pureed vegetables, pomegranate juice, flaxseed, wheat germ etc to meals for added nutrition. I liked the recipes in the cookbook and more important my kids have been enjoying the recipes I've used.

This time it's even faster and easier, with smart short cuts and quick fixes using the better store-bought foods. Missy even gives you a master shopping list ("Sneaky Staples")to take to the market, with tips on how to do everything faster, including getting through the checkout line. Of course there are lots of recipes that are super simple and quick. We love the Ridiculously Easy Ravioli Lasagna, Chicken Fries, and 60-Second Mini Chocolate Cakes. And you have to try the new versions of Sneaky's Breakfast Ice Cream! The Sneaky Chef's foods taste too good to be healthy - and you get the whole family eating more veggies, whole grains, and fruit. Can't beat that. Even when the kids know you're adding "good stuff" in, they love it anyway. Thank you, Sneaky Chef. You've done it again.
