Kids of the picky persuasion will balk at being forced to eat, or even look at, a vegetable. The mere sight of something green on my daughter's plate can, quite literally, bring her to tears. And no amount of bribing, coercing or pleading can change the situation. If this is your child, or if you simply want to expand your good eater's already healthy repertoire, two books are guaranteed to cut down on mealtime stress and provide some culinary inspiration. Missy Chase Lapine, author of The Sneaky Chef is very sneaky indeed. Who knew you could hide cauliflower in the ubiquitous mac and cheese? Or turn a bland burrito into an appealing vegetable fiesta? If you're at your wit's end, and out of ideas, The Sneaky Chef offers hope.
