What to Cook for Dinner for Picky Eaters



I ran across this wonderful eBook the other day that's full of recipes for picky eaters. My daughters are very picky eaters, my youngest is the worse.... I'll admit that they get their picky food habits from me. I was very interested in what kind of recipes were going to be in the book due to it being written by a chef. I'm a country girl and we never eat too fancy and I was worried that the recipes were going to be too "up-class" for my picky eaters but I was very wrong!

"What to Cook for Dinner for Picky Eaters" has all kinds of easy to make recipes that I'm sure any child would eat. Even if you have to change an ingredient to two.
As I was looking through the book, my youngest daughter happened to walk up and started looking at the book with me. I was very surprised when she asked me to make her some Crock-Pot Hamburger Soup! (The award winner recipe) Jade is the pickiest eater in the house and to hear her ask for something that she has never ate before put a big smile on this moms face!
The recipes in this book are simple to make and the ingredients are everyday foods used in ways that I would of never thought of. 

I also really like the tips and information at the beginning of the book.
It explains how kids don't like to eat foods that they aren't familiar with and if you serve unfamiliar food to your child, make sure you add something to the plate that you know they already enjoy and don't stop after serving it once and your child not liking it. Try Try Again!
"What to Cook for Dinner for Picky Eaters" also has information about how food can cause rashes like Eczema or make them worse. More people have food sensitivities that we realize, sometimes you won't even know that you have food sensitivities until it's pointed out to you. The book can help you with that.
I was very surprised on how helpful this book really is! 

I'll be using this recipe book regularly and I'm looking forward to seeing how my family likes all the wonderful looking recipes. My fiance's wanting me to make some 'Smothered Pecan-Encrusted Chicken with Apple Butter' for supper one day this week and I believe I'll give it try. Chef John's wife was trying to recreate a recipe she eat while they were visiting Boone, NC when she created the Smothered Pecan-Encrusted. I live in Candler NC, right outside of Asheville, not far from Boone! I can't wait to try out that chicken recipe.
This is one recipe book that every parent needs if their children are picky eaters!

  1. That's a good tip about serving food along with an unfamiliar item. Helps the kids feel more comfortable with a new food.

    1. It really does work! My youngest daughter (The one who asked for the Hamburger Soup) is VERY picky and we always try to add an unfamiliar food to her plate. Sometimes she eats it and sometimes she don't but atleast I know that we tried and there will always be a next time :-)

  2. Oh such good tips! Although I have never had a picky eater my nephew is and when it's time to eat, I cringe because I am not used to having to make something "special" just for him-so I know this book and tips would come in handy!
    Thanks for sharing(;

    1. That's the way my oldest daughter is! She use to be a small amount of a picky eater but she will eat anything these days. Like you said, she may complain for a few minutes but she will end up eating it anyways.

    1. Good-Luck with your daughter :-) Maybe she'll grow-up to eat anything! Aslong as your keep her food options open and with a wide variety as a small child then you should have no problems as she gets older. I'm glad your son grew out of the picky eating stage. I never did... Maybe my daughter will soon. Baby steps :-)
