Stick To A Better Diet—Even Around Your Kids
"The secret is being super-organized," says Jessica Seinfeld, wife of Jerry, working mother of three, and author of the new book Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food. Two of the strategies she uses to work healthful foods into her- and her family's-life:
- Eat a quick breakfast every morning.
Most often, Seinfeld microwaves a bowl of oatmeal and tops it with fresh blueberries, so she knows she's starting off the day with something nutritionally sound.
- Sneak in the nutrients.
She blends steamed vegetables (broccoli, peppers, carrots) in a food processor, then mixes them into kid-friendly dishes, so she can enjoy them too. Some favorites: pancakes with sweet potato purée and mac and cheese made with reduced-fat cheddar and cauliflower purée. Good-for-you recipes kids and adults will love
