    An essential cookbook and guide for foodie parents who believe kids deserve better than burgers, pizza, and chicken nuggets

    Dedicated foodies Hugh Garvey and Matthew Yeomans saw no reason to abandon adventurous eating once they had kids. Between them, they and their wives now have four children under five-all of whom eat "adult" fare and gladly try new foods. In this lively full-color cookbook, Garvey and Yeomans share their strategies for raising fearless, unfussy eaters. They don't try to hide vegetables or trick kids into eating healthy food. Instead, they show how to broaden kids' tastes-and put together simple but sophisticated meals that the whole family will love. From Orange and Ginger Soy Ribs to Spinach Mac and Cheese and Watermelon and Feta Salad, the book's 72 recipes have plenty of kid appeal, but are stylish enough to satisfy food-loving parents.
