Continuing on from last weeks Manic Mondays post....
I checked out the book Deceptively Delicious, by Jessica Seinfeld (yes, married to Jerry) at the library today. I have never been a fan of tricking your kids into eating fruits and veggies because I believe that they will have a hard time learning to eat them, like them or even love them when they are older. I could be very wrong I really don't know. Sam has always been one to eat his fruits and veggies but since he's not eating that much lately and I know that his nutrition value has gone down (yes, he even takes vitamins) I'm going to give this a try.
On Amazon there is one review for this book that has a great suggestion that I may do mainly because I can always use help in the "doing it quick and easy" area. Here is what she suggested: "...one suggestion for busy parents - use organic baby food. I don't have a food processor and I don't have a dedicated block of time to clean, cook and prepare all the purees for the week. For about $.65 (or less) per jar, I can have 1/2 cup of organic winter squash etc. that has already been cleaned, cooked and pureed for me. Plus, it will keep on the shelf until I need it so I can buy extra when they go on sale." Now I can do this!
I'm open to reading suggestions so please leave some comments. Just remember to be nice.
