Published on the 21 March 2019, Get Your Kids to Eat Anything by Emily Leary is a 5-phase programme to change the way your family thinks about food. It’s an achievable ‘how to’ for parents in the battle to overcome picky eating and ‘make new the norm’.
Emily Leary – A Mummy Too
First, I want to congratulate my fellow food blogger Emily Leary on the publication, and rapid popularity, of her very first cookbook! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Emily in person, several years ago, and it’s heart-warming to see her succeed like this.
Emily began blogging the same year I did, back in 2011, and her blog A Mummy Too quickly became the place to go for recipes, tips and video guides for busy working parents who want to get the most out of family life and parenting. Her blogging career has gone from strength to strength, and now she’s got this fabulous book to add to her list of achievements!
How to Get Your Kids to Eat Everything – a 5-Phase Approach
Emily’s unique 5-phase programme looks at the issue of ‘fussy eating’ in a holistic way that links imagination with food, and which situates parents alongside – not in opposition to – their children.
This journey of food discovery will change the way you and your family look at food and will help bring healthy variety into every meal for years to come. It encourages you to ease away from the same four-to-six staple meals most families fall back on, towards truly varied meal plans from day to day, week to week, to the point where introducing your whole family to new flavours, colours and textures is a breeze because new is the norm.
Each phase in Emily’s approach includes a clear explanation of what you are going to learn and achieve, clear advice and commentary plus two weeks of delicious tried-and-tested recipes. There are also hands-on activities to try out with your family, all of which will help bring that phase to life and help you and your family to progress forwards.
Phase 1: Put the Unfamiliar into the Familiar
Introduce elements of unfamiliar colour, flavour or texture into family favourites. Think spinach “meatballs” or lentil bolognese.
Phase 2: Educate
Experiment with texture, taste and smell. Look into the science of taste, understand where food comes from and grow your own.
Phase 3: Discover the Fun in Food
Build a new level of enthusiasm for variety with creative, exciting dishes such as pancake plate art and bright red risotto.
Phase 4: Step into the Unknown
Push food boundaries with surprising flavour combinations, such as strawberries and cream pasta!
Phase 5: Cement Variety
Now it’s time to make sure the habit sticks. Learn techniques to keep your family mealtimes varied in the long-term.
Recipes include the fruit and vegetable lollies above, made with spinach, bananas, strawberries and yoghurt; the curried fish fingers with sweet potato fries pictured above and ideas for a healthier fondue incorporating all sorts of delicious vegetables.
