"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."

It didn't really help me feed my kidz any more veggies as they could still taste whatever it was that they weren't interested in.
The theory is awesome. Putting it into motion can be expensive and not very practical, to be honest with you.
My kidz didn't like the Macaroni and cheese or several other dishes.
So for me and my family, it just didn't work out very well. I've found better results by just using budget friendly recipes that taste great.
Also, if you have blood sugar issues like me. blending all those veggies can really make your blood sugar spike. So for me, this one is a no go.
Poor Editing: Quite a few pages and recipes in the kindle for phone, PC, and cloud reader are missing the fractional measurement number for ingredients. See photo - I can't make this recipe unless I consult the paperback version of the book, which I don't own (yet), because I can't tell how much of 4 separate ingredients are required to make it. I've tried reading it on the kindle app for phone, PC, and amazon cloud reader and all share this problem of missing measurements.
Great Content: The content is well presented, organized, and very readable, and informative. I've only had the opportunity to make one of the recipes (brownies) so far, but I look forward to making more. The brownies were a little heavy and fudge-like, which I enjoy, but if you're looking for fluffy cake-like brownies you may need to experiment. I used her suggestion to replace both white and whole wheat flours with whole wheat pastry flour in my batch.
The recipes do not include exotic ingredients that you have to google what is it and then trek to some specialty food store to find it.
The author includes tips and tricks on how to make the recipes (for example: when adding a sticky ingredient like honey or maple syrup, first add the oil then use the same measuring cup to add the sticky ingredient that way the sticky ingredient will slide right off. smh!) She also includes exactly why the "sneaky" ingredients are so nutritious and beneficial for our bodies, so you swell with pride about how much of an awesome mom you are when your kid devours food that is secretly nutritious.
My husband and I will also eat the sneaky food recipes and get some added nutrition without the extra bulk.
Overall it's a great book and I highly recommend it!
