Help Your Kids Learn to Love Vegetables with 101 Easy Activities and Recipes

Yes, kids can learn to love vegetables—and have fun doing it!

A new, foolproof method developed by feeding therapist Melanie Potock, coauthor of Raising a Healthy, Happy Eater, teaches kids ages 3–8 to love vegetables—for a lifetime of good eating. Her program is a simple—and fun—three-step process: the “3 Easy E’s”!

  • Expose your child to new vegetables with sensory, hands-on, and educational activities (Make Beet Tattoos).
  • Explore the characteristics of each veggie (texture, taste, temperature, and more) with delectable but oh-so-easy recipes (Crispy Asparagus Bundles).
  • Expand your family’s repertoire with more inventive vegetable dishes—including a “sweet treat” with every chapter (Give Peas a Chance Cake).

The book features 20 vegetables divided into four seasons. In addition to the easy-to-follow activities and recipes, Potock offers Fun Foodie Tips, plus bite-size advice on kitchen science and parenting in the kitchen.

So long to scary vegetables, hello to friendly new textures, colors—and flavors!

“Feeding therapist Potock has developed a year’s worth of family-friendly recipes along with practical, proven strategies for helping kids learn to become more adventurous eaters gradually. The book features 20 vegetables, organized by season, each with activities and recipes highlighting the three phases to vegetable love: expose, explore, expand.”—Publishers Weekly
