NATIONAL BESTSELLER TV star Misha Collins and his wife, journalist and historian Vicki Collins, show families how to be mealtime adventurers so that kids might have a lifelong relationship with real food Chicken nuggets. Hot dogs. Macaroni and cheese. These are just some of the greatest hits we offer kids at mealtime. Misha and Vicki Collins totally get it. When their son West was a toddler, he began refusing anything that wasn't bland and beige. At first, they succumbed, anything to end the mealtime battles. But with sinking hearts they realized fruit snacks and buttered noodles weren't just void of nutrition, they were setting him up for a lifetime with a limited palate and a reliance on convenience foods. So, as a family, they decided to lean into what they love best-adventure-and invited their kids to be playful and exploratory in the kitchen. Now, in The Adventurous Eaters Club, Misha and Vicki share how they created a home where mealtime doesn't involve coercion or trickery, and where salad, veggies, fresh soups, and fruit are the main course. Combining personal anecdotes and practical tips with over 100 creative, delicious, whimsical recipes little hands can help prepare The Adventurous Eaters Club offers readers all the support, encouragement, and practical advice they need to make lifelong adventurous eaters out of their kids.
Here, Jenna Helwig, author of Real Baby Food and Baby-Led Feeding and the food editor at Parents magazine, shares 100 recipes to nurture your baby's development and cultivate wholesome family mealtimes. Best of all, making baby food in a multi-cooker or slow cooker gives you the gift new parents need most - time: You simply put the food in the pot, set the time, and walk away. Here are some of the great reasons to make your own baby food using a multi-cooker: *You're in control: You're not limited by the varieties on supermarket shelves and can customise foods for your baby. *It's easy and convenient: Most recipes require just one pot, and the machine does all the work for you. Many of these recipes are ready in 30 minutes or less. *The timing is flexible: Many of the recipes can be made fast or slow using either a pressure or slow cooker - flexibility that's priceless when you're juggling irregular schedules. *It's economical: Making your own is much less expensive than buying the same amount of jarred baby food. *It saves time: Make and store big batches, and you'll have dinner at the ready for weeks. From starter foods to family meals, recipes include DIY staples like yogurt; single-ingredient fruit and veggie purees; finger foods like Purple Sweet Potato Patties, Blueberry Banana Bread, and Chicken Nuggets; and toddler-friendly meals like Cauliflower Mac 'n' Cheese, Meatballs, and Savory Steel-Cut Oats. All recipes are vetted by a registered dietitian and include nutritional information to help ensure healthy mealtimes.
