My recomendation: borrow this book and try before you buy! I was excited to get it. The idea is splendid, by adding vegi purees to your kids normal foods, you can trick them into eating more healthy. I confess that I have only tried a handful of these recipes but my kids don't like them. And I spent hours chopping, cooking and pureeing the stupid vegitables before making anything. And after all that, you add like 1/4 or 1/2 a cup of the stuff for about 8 servings. So, what is that, like 1 tsp per person? Are you kidding? I just did all that work for a tsp of pureed vegis? (to be fair, a rare few of the recipes call for 3 tsp per serving) The kids are saying, "What's wrong with this?" with the accompanying sneer and barely repressed gag reflex. So, no thank you, Jessica. I'll just stick to my old method, hold thier noses while I force the vegis in. Sorry, kids! Eventually they will realize that vegi's are good if you put enough butter and salt on them. I know this. I have faith that they will come to the same conclusion. Now what the heck am I going to do with all those bags of chickpea puree in my freezer?
