I have been looking for a new cook book that has healthy recipes that are kid friendly. I cant find any! All the healthy cook books I find have foods that the kids wouldnt touch, take too long to make or too many ingredients. We are a busy family, and want to feed the kids healthy foods that they will actually eat let alone be able to pronounce. Any suggestions?

Great question! Making dinner is anxiety producing ...and I don't want to be a short order cook making different dishes for everyone in the family!

I buy a lot of 5 ingredient 15 minute cookbooks- weight watchers and cooking light put them out- a lot of time I find them at the checkout with the magazines, or with the magazines at a big bookstore. All the recipes are not kid friendly but many are. Like sandwiches with a twist on them, you could easily leave out an ingredient that is too 'scary'. One of my favorites is chicken sandwiches marinated in light soy sauce with grilled pineapple and fresh basil on it. Since my daughter is just 3 I put stuff in front of her, if she doesn't eat it I may make her an egg or a sandwich or something. They say it takes over 10 exposures before kids will accept a food. don't know if that helps!

That does help! Thank you! I have often seen those little books at the checkout, but I didnt know if they were worth it.
