Readers’ Favorite Book Review 5-Star Rating
Teaching young children to eat healthily is an ongoing experiment and for many parents, it’s an uphill battle. But it doesn’t need to be a challenge. Heide Linde Horeth, in her recent gem of a book, 4 Ways to Yummy Children’s Vegetable Cookbook: Garden-to-Table Veggie Love, provides helpful suggestions to make this ongoing learning experience not only healthy but an adventure, pure and simple. As the author writes in her introduction, this is one way for eaters, young and old, “to reconnect you to the healthful world of 'rainbowlicious' vegetables.”
There are many things that affect a person’s interest in the vegetable food group; taste is only one of these things. What a vegetable looks like, smells like, feels like influences all of us. Texture is definitely a key point to consider, something many of us overlook, but texture does influence our opinions of what we like and don’t like to eat. Heide manipulates these senses and creates a whole new way to approach introducing vegetables into a young person’s diet without a battle. The author introduces many different vegetables and encourages the reader to study this vegetable with their young children, to learn to appreciate the vegetable’s valuable benefits.
The book is well laid out with illustrations and charts to encourage the reader to consider all options with various vegetables. The author also points out the importance of including the young eater in this study, so the young person can appreciate everything that each vegetable has to offer, not just in nutrients, but also in taste, texture, smell and so much more. A valuable tool for young mothers who seriously want their children to eat healthily.
