My son will only eat tomatoes if we grow them ourselves. Each spring we grow a little cherry tomato plant and when they get ripe he picks and eats them up, straight off the vine and warm from the sun. He wouldn't have it any other way.


What a great book. My 4 year old won't eat food that is mixed or touching something else. This looks like a great way to get her to be OK with food mixing.


What a great giveaway! My daughter will pretty much eat anything a long as she is involed with the preparation! She loves to make pizzas with lots of veggies, and smoothies in the blender.

My daughter likes healthy fruits and whole grains, but I'd like to see her eat more vegetables! I think she would enjoy playing with her food first! Thanks for the giveaway!

My son LOVES grains, but getting him to eat fruits and vegetables seemed like such an impossible feat until I started blending them into smoothies. So every afternoon he gets a smoothie treat of fresh fruits and veggies. I'll throw in some flax seed and wheat germ for a nutritional boost too. Thanks for the giveaway.

What a fun sounding book. My 4 yo thinks tomatoes make her "sad." My 2yo won't touch half the produce out there. I'd love to give this book a try!


One of my little tricks for getting my kids to eat fruit and vegetables is to casually leave a bowl of cut up stuff lying out in easy reach. For some reason, a carrot stick presented as 'here's your snack!' has no appeal. A bowl of carrots left on the coffee table with no comment? Will disappear.

I would love to win this book because I always need new ideas for feeding my kids!


My husband and I tell our 3 year old that eating veggies will put hair on his chest and he will get big muscles like daddy.:)

I need this book because lately he hasn't been buying anything we try to get him to eat veggies. I think he would like this approach and be more interested in trying things he won't normally eat.

Well sometimes we have to mix in the vegetables with the pasta so he is eating it before he knows it! Not a great way to do it so I am looking for other ideas.

What a fun idea for a book. Both my boys love to cook (ages 8 and 10). This book would help make it extra fun!


My kids love veggies (most of the time.) But there are a few the won't eat, like lettuce, tomatoes, etc. I would love some new ideas on ways to make these foods fun for them to eat.

I am a Facebook fan.


I have always consistently offered healthy foods (I'm convinced that avoiding sugar when he was younger helped his taste buds appreciate other flavors), but I try and introduce whimsy for even more pleasure!


I subscribe!

We've done some 'playing with our food' with our picky 6 yr old. When it's time for steamed brocolli we pretend that there are sneaky creatures hiding in the forest trying NOT to get eaten by the giant monster (my son). A bit of fun reverse psychology! Of course, the sneaky creature keeps hiding in different brocolli places (library, school, hospital, grandparent's house, etc.) until finally it gets eaten on the very last piece (funny how that works!).

I'd love to learn new fun ways to encourage healthy eating for my son and younger daughter (who could play with their food together while my husband and I enjoy adult conversation). Thanks!


My 2 year old daughter already loves to help me cook in the kitchen. We buy organic produce, shop at our farmers market and make healthy versions of yummy food: pancakes made with sweet potato, banana bran "cupcakes," freezing plain yogurt pureed with fruit for a frozen treat...The biggest thing I do is just offer fresh fruit and veggies and whole grains at each meal and skip the processed, sugary, refined foods altogether. Must be doing something right - she eats peas like candy!

I just love this book! The "mom"-amato is almost too cute to eat! Thanks for your great blog. We've added you to Ecover's blogroll! Keep up the excellent work!

Love it!!! I would love to win this has my daughter has been begging me for a cookbook!!! We would have so much fun with this!!!


What a great book! I always struggle with getting my kids to eat healthy. We've had good luck with my 6yo son, he loves salad and fruit. And he's great with trying new things. But my 3yo little girl only wants bread and crackers! We just keep offering the healthy stuff and hope that it will stick.


We don't live that far from Madison! We are adding that to our list =) We frequently go to the Farmer's Market...can't wait for it to open this year! Thanks for the book idea too!


I have three kids - all which have their own opinion on what tastes good! This book looks like lots of fun!


What a neat sounding book. My kids have a day they pick what they want for supper. They are very enthusiastic about it. They also help with the shopping when we go to the Farmer's Market so they get more enthused about eating what they helped purchase...


This sounds so fun! I have to say I am lucky to have a good eater, who at 19 months would always choose the fruit over the cookie!
