Get Your Kids to Eat Anything - Book Review

Get Your Kids to Eat Anything - Book Review (AD)

When Emily Leary asked for fellow bloggers to review her book Get Your Kids to Eat Anything, I applied straight away.

If you have a fussy eater in your family you understand the struggles, you have tried everything - from threats to bribery, and they just do not work. This book is not only full of beautifully photographed recipes but is a workbook too.

Emily Leary is an award winning parenting and food blogger. She shares her recipes and parenting tips on her blog, A Mummy Too. She also writes for publications and websites such as Metro, Good Housekeeping and Huffington post.

Pancake Art - Step 3

Get Your Kids to Eat Anything is not just a recipe book, it also has a five step plan to guide you and your family from fussy eater to happy eater.

I loved how the recipes fit in with the plan, how easy it was to follow and that there are work sheets to record your successes (and failures). It is not a criticism of how you feed your family, or why your child is a fussy eater. It acknowledges that anyone can have a fussy eater, including Emily the author,  and guides you gently through each step.

The Five Step Plan

  1. Put the unfamiliar into the familiar - introduce elements of unfamiliar colour, flavour or texture into family favourites like lentil bolognese
  2. Educate - Experiment with texture, taste and smell. Understand where food comes from, grow something yourself.
  3. Discover the fun in food - Build a new level of enthusiasm for variety with creative, exciting dishes like Pancake Art.
  4. Step into the unknown -Push food boundaries with surprising flavour combinations, such as Strawberries with Cream pasta
  5. Cement variety - Learn techniques to keep family mealtimes varied long term.

Even if you don't have fussy eaters this book is full of fresh, innovative ideas. Great for those days when you're stumped for something a little bit different, but reassuringly familiar.

Children of all ages (fussy eaters or not) will love the "tasks" such as making sticky sour dough or growing and harvesting their own fruit and vegetables.

Get Your Kids to Eat Anything is available from Amazon and costs £16.99
