Have you guys heard of this? My toddler is my good eater, but my preschooler is the picky one, so I LOVE these recipes. You make a bunch of make ahead purees to add to your food and just freeze them. It makes it so easy to get those veggies in and they never know

Here is a favorite of ours:

Power Pizza
Makes 1 large pizza or 4 smaller pizzas
- 1 store bought pizza dough or 4 "Greek style" pocketless pitas (whole wheat preferred)
- 3/4 cup store-bought tomato sauce
- 3 tablespoons Orange Puree (see Make-Ahead Recipe #2)
- 1 to 2 cups low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
- Optional extra boost: sliced mushrooms, onions, sweet peppers, or artichoke hearts
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees and preheat a pizza stone, if using one, or spray a baking sheet with oil.

> Stretch pizza dough, or roll out with floured rolling pin on floured surface, to form a pie and transfer it to the stone or baking sheet. If using pocketless pitas, place them on the prepared baking sheet. Combine tomato sauce with the Orange Puree. Mix well. Spread 1/2 to 1 cup of the sauce mixture across the large pizza dough (use only 1/4 cup of sauce for each pita), then top with about 1 cup of mozzarella (use about 1/2 cup of cheese per pita). Cover and refrigerate at this point, or bake for 15 to 20 minutes until bubbly and lightly browned. Allow to cool a few minutes, then cut into triangles and serve.

i have the book...have to say that I haven't made any of the recipes...they do look interesting and it is a good way to incorporate vegetables and green things that my daughter won't eat...

I love the Sneaky Chef! I try to incorporate hidden vegetables whenever I can. I actually came up with a delicious sweet muffin that has kale in it, and my picky toddler loves it! You can't even taste the kale. Just be sure to chop it up very finely. I posted it in my blog - here is the link if anyone is interested: Kale Lemon Coconut Muffins
