Ever had a cupcake with beet and squash? Or how about a blueberry cheesecake cupcake with spinach? I am going to bake it this weekend and will give you a detailed review, as well as my 4 year old daughters comments.

“Deceptive Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating good Food.” is a new cookbook from Jessica Seinfeld. Her recipes incorporate vegetable and fruit purees in order to sneak in nutritional value and making sure your children will get their daily recommended intake of important fibers, vitamins, and anti-oxidants.

I am blessed with a child who does eat veggies and fruits, but making treats healthier is an appealing idea to me. I eat a broad array of vegetables and fruits myself and still explore unknown ones, while scouting Asian and Latin grocery stores and farmer’s markets. Sarah loves these food trips!

I often decorate Sarah’s plate with slices of tomato, raw mushrooms, bell peppers avocado etc. to add some “extra” and make it colorful and attractive. I am very curious to see how she’ll react to pureed cauliflower in her macaroni and cheese. The recipes are easy, and fast, turning any meal and treat into a paramount health contribution to your family!
