Board-certified holistic health practitioner and speaker Leann Forst has published a new cookbook, How To Get Your Kids to Beg for Veggies: Quick & Easy Hidden Veggie Recipes the Whole Family Will Love, focusing on hidden veggie recipes for picky eaters.
In Forst’s opinion, the standard American diet contributes to a variety of chronic childhood illnesses. “Processed, high-sugar and fatty food shave led to an epidemic of childhood obesity and increased risk for developing heart disease, diabetes and hypertension,” she states.
Forst says children’s bodies need a foundation of health that comes from the nutrients gained from vegetables. Unfortunately, many parents face obstacles to putting healthy meals on the table everyday, or finding healthy foods that will please the family’s picky eaters.
With her quick and easy cookbook, Forst lightens the burden on parents that want to feed their family nutritiously without the hassle of complicated and time-consuming preparation by providing methods disguising healthy ingredients in popular foods children enjoy.
The book is available at GroovyBeets.com and Amazon.com. A book signing event is scheduled for noon, Aug.8, at Barnes & Noble in the Stonebriar Mall, in Frisco. For more information, call 214-673-4788 or visit GroovyBeets.com. See ads, pages 25 and 41.
