So my mom saw Oprah a couple of weeks ago and Jessica Seinfeld was on telling everyone about her "idea" to puree food and hide it into kids food. She loved the idea so much that she ran out and bought the book for me. I have not been too excited about it, because my kids love their veggies. Once upon a time they cried when given certain veggies, but for the most part they are really good eaters. I have looked at the book, but not given it a lot of thought until last night.
We had this great dinner of porkchops, squash, steamed broccoli and bread. The kids freaked out about the squash.....this is not new. They used to love squash, but lately you would think it had arcenic in it!! So I finally picked up the book and read...decided to make some whole wheat french toast this morning, with the deceptive ingredient of squash mixed in. They wolfed it down...not even a mention that it was whole wheat bread!! I laughed inside as I schemed a dinner with healthy ingredients without the knowledge. So this evening I will be trying her famous Broccoli chicken nuggets and butternut squash pasta, served with some fresh veggies as well.
I am not entirely sold on it yet....we will have to see if the recipes continue to be hits. I am super excited to try the banana bread for snacks. It took me about 30 minutes to find flaxseed meal in the grocery store today. I am excited to put that on everything they eat!!! lots of good stuff in there. So not to go all granola on ya...but maybe just maybe this will be the start of some good stuff in our house.
