Book Description

*[One of the recipes in this cookbook is a Top Recipes Android App Editor's Choice Award Winner!]

Are you tired of endless mealtime battles?

Worried that your child isn’t getting the right nutrition? Do you feel like you will be serving the same meal to your picky eater for eternity?

All of that is about to change…

What to Cook for Dinner for Picky Eaters: Chef John's Family-Favorite Main Dish Recipes, by Chef John Newsome and his wife, Anne, is your ticket to getting your child to eat more, eat better, and try new, delicious foods that the whole family will love.

Each of the 23 delicious main dish recipes, ranging from a quick and easy macaroni and cheese recipe (with an ingredient many may have never thought to try) to a little more sophisticated pasta recipe, was developed by Chef John and was given the thumbs up by the Newsome’s own in-house picky eaters. The recipes will give you a variety of meats and flavor combinations to try with your children.

Also included in the book is some little-known information about what may be causing your child’s picky eating, as well as useful tips to getting kids to try new foods from the Newsomes and professional advice from their nutritionist, Suzzanne Myer.

What to Cook for Dinner for Picky Eaters is the all-in-one resource that families with picky eaters won’t want to be without.

"I always say this when I find something that I love- Where was this book 8 years ago when my son was a picky eater? I enjoyed What to Cook for Picky Eaters! The introduction itself contained valuable info for new parents and parents of older children like me...

The recipes in the book are not only easy but will appeal to kids of all ages. My favorite recipe is the Kicked-Up Crockpot Cubed Steak. I know my son will love it and I love the convenience of using the crockpot for low stress cooking. I work outside the home, so crockpot recipes for picky eaters are a dream come true. I am going to make this one on Sunday!" ~ Pamela

"As I was looking through the book, my youngest daughter happened to walk up and started looking at the book with me. I was very surprised when she asked me to make her some Crock-Pot Hamburger Soup! (The award winner recipe) Jade is the pickiest eater in the house and to hear her ask for something that she has never ate before put a big smile on this moms face! The recipes in this book are simple to make and the ingredients are everyday foods used in ways that I would of never thought of." ~FaerieMommy

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly formatted and the recipes look OK June 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The What to Cook for Dinner for Picky Eaters by John and Anne Newsome is a cookbook written with good intentions. Unfortunately their cookbook goes awry from the get-go.


The book is poorly formatted. No interactive table of contents that I could find. Followed up with an almost blog-style of writing and formatting. If you are in a rush, or if you have young children tugging at you when trying to fix dinner, this is not the cookbook to use as it's difficult to read and find recipes.

The authors do recommend seeking advice from a pediatrician, family doctor or nutritionist as a disclaimer. Later in the book the authors write about contacting a Nutritionist, Suzzanne Myer, based in Washington State who offered a telephone food consultation concerning the Eczema problem with one of their children. The authors did not list Myer's credentials (is she a registered dietician for example?) in their book so as a reader I was left to wonder about the veracity of the author's writing. Also, the authors chose to capitalize Eczema and Nutritionist and I suspect both words should have been in lower case as they are not proper titles or nouns. For example: You should capitalize Atopic dermatitis as this is a type of eczema. There are many forms of eczema including Atopic dermatitis.

Before I go too far afield in this review, some of the common allergy triggers found in children are caused by eggs and nuts. The authors have chosen to include recipes using both.

As others have already mentioned, the e-book is poorly formatted, with no active table of contents, table of contents is broken into two parts, with the first half appearing at the beginning of the book, and the second half at the end of the book.

The recipes seem tasty enough, but if you have kids who will eat these recipes, you don't have picky eaters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy a different book June 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are really struggling with having a picky eater, I would not recommend this book. It is basically the authors saying "our kids were picky but they like these few recipes, so try them". Other than a few recipes the minimal suggestions are common sense, and they seem to encourage the use of meal replacement drinks for kids. Glad I got it for free...

2.0 out of 5 stars Well intended. March 7, 2013
By Faith
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is well intended, but I don't see picky eaters eating many of the recipes in this book either. Plus, a lot of them are pretty detailed. To me, kid friendly meals should be easy to make, and easy to obtain ingredients for.

A fabulous resource for moms and dads alike who want to feed their children well. Much more than just another recipe book, this book tackles the all too common issue of picky eaters and how to overcome it. I strongly recommend this book. No special ingredients or skills needed. And get ready to smile when you see that your kids enjoy dinner like never before!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, easy and nutritious recipes for real families December 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great resource for busy parents who want to fix nutritious meals for their kids, even the picky eaters. Written by parents who not only have formal training in cooking but who have real life experiences in feeding their own children, who have food sensitivities. The recipes are easy enough that even those of us who aren't really cooks can follow, with normal ingredients already on hand. I also liked how the authors address the "picky eater" issue and what to watch for and how to overcome it. Highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to cook nutritious meals in a hurry!! Looking forward to trying some recipes myself!

Found few recipes my picky eater wouldn't complain about. Although I think that they all sound great. Keep up the good work.

The book was a fast read, but didn't really give much information. The recipes were not really my family's style. Good thing I got the book for free.
