Jessica Seinfeld has done it again. A few years ago, her book Deceptively Delicious was flying off the shelves of the bookstores and onto the kitchen counters of moms who wanted to sneak more vegetables into their kids’ food.
Though her concept of pureeing veggies and adding them to baked goods wasn’t new—savvy parents have been doing it for ages on their own—Jessica’s cover, with a fresh 1950′s retro look, paired with the good word of her husband, Jerry Seinfeld, made her book rise to the top of the New York Times bestseller list.
Yesterday she launched her new book, Double Delicious, with more family friendly, quick meals. It also boasts more whole grains, and more vegetables.
Though many of us here at Babble feel it’s important to also encourage our kids to eat vegetables without tricks, Double Delicious is a great way to cook and bake in a more healthy way.
Among the dozens of recipes include an apple crumble made with butternut squash puree, teriyaki chicken with carrot puree, and cinnamon rolls with about a tenth of the fat of the kind you can buy.
You can check out some of her new recipes shared exclusively with Babble here: “Deceptively Delicious: Healthy and nutritious recipes for kids”
And, in honor of eating healthy (and since her book is titled Double Delicious), we’re giving away 2 copies! Just go to Facebook and tell us: What’s your kid’s favorite vegetable? You have until 12AM EST on Friday, October 29th to enter. Good luck!
