    Book Review

Reviewed by Charity Tober for Readers' Favorite

How to Get Your Kids to Beg for Veggies by Leann Forst is a valuable and informative recipe cookbook for parents of young children. The author starts by explaining the benefits of a healthy, REAL food diet for children and exactly how much of each different nutrient our bodies need on a daily basis. The book is conveniently divided into sections containing breakfast, lunch/dinner and snack/treat recipes. Each recipe has a full color picture, ingredient list, instructions and complete nutritional information. All of the recipes have hidden healthy vegetables ingredients but are very kid-friendly options. For instance, some breakfast choices include a Chocolate Protein Spinach Smoothie and Creamy Peach Oatmeal, while a tasty lunch choice could be a Pizza Pocket Sandwich or Savory Turkey Veggie Meatballs. Snack time slump? No problem, just whip up some Chocolate Superfood Muffins, Beet Brownies or Banana Avocado Chocolate Pudding! I will definitely be trying out some of these recipes with my son very soon!

I enjoyed reading How to Get Your Kids to Beg for Veggies and, as a mom myself, I can really appreciate a book containing tasty AND healthy recipe options for my little picky eater. All of the recipes were listed in a very easy to follow format and I loved that each recipe had a full color picture included. The book contained a wide variety of recipes as well as incorporating many different veggie options. I would recommend this book to all parents of young children, especially those with picky or inconsistent eaters.
