My kids think I am an awesome cook because of this book, and they are getting veggies and fruit without even knowing it. My son will not try ANYTHING! I made boxed mac and cheese with pureed zucchini and cauliflower...he said it was the best mac and cheese he has EVER had! I make the pureed veggies once or even twice a week and freeze the rest. And I also didn't listen to her "fresh" veggies. I got frozen veggies for most of it, like cauliflower, peas, broccoli, corn. I actually get the "steamfresh" veggies so all I have to do is pop them in the microwave. I wait until they are on sale. A lot of it we already were doing, for example, wheat breads. This is the first and only cookbook I have ever used!

I was a little disappointed. In a nutshell it is make homemade veggie purees (think babyfood) and hiding it in your recipes.

Pureeing fruits and vegetables is not that difficult to do. I have a one-year-old son, and I made all his baby food from scratch by pureeing things for him to eat. All you really need is a blender. Since we started him on solids during the summer months, I used as much fresh fruits and veggies as I could. Now that we are in to the winter months and not much stuff is in season right now, I use frozen bags of fruits and veggies. By making baby food for my son, I know that he's getting healthy choices, it's a lot cheaper in the long run, and it really doesn't take much to make purees and freeze them. Thanks to homemade food, my son is not a picky eater and I hope to continue giving him healthy food options and will utilize a cookbook like this one in order to make sure all his meals are nutritious.
