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 "Three 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 bite-size advice on kitchen science and parenting in the kitchen.
