Jessica Seinfeld behind-the-scenes on Oprah

Jessica Seinfeld behind-the-scenes on Oprah

Oprah.com has a number of behind-the-scenes videos, slideshows, and even recipes from Jessica Seinfeld‘s appearance on the show to share Deceptively Delicious.  Check it out here.

“At dinner tables across America, fed up parents and finicky children face off over a silent enemy…vegetables.

These nightly battles have been fought since spinach, peas and other good-for-you foods first found their way onto plates. Many parents try every trick in the book—from bribery and bargaining to begging—but nothing seems to work.

Thanks to a new cookbook by Jessica Seinfeld, wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld and mother of three young children, parents can stop fighting and start savoring dinnertime!

Jessica’s cookbook, Deceptively Delicious(SM), was inspired by her own family’s veggie wars. Before discovering the secret to delicious, nutritious meals, she says she dreaded dinnertime. “The last thing you want to do is come home and make dinner and have people spit it out or say, “Ew! This is disgusting,'” she says.

Rather than giving up on healthy eating all together, Jessica figured out a way to get her kids to eat everything from beets to broccoli…without any whining!”

Jessica Seinfeld Q&A at Parents.com

Jessica Seinfeld Q&A at Parents.com

Parents.com has an entertaining Q&A with Jessica Seinfeld about her cookbook; check it out here.

“Parents.com:  Who’s your chef inspiration?

Jessica Seinfeld:  My mom and my grandmom. They both worked but somehow got home at 5:30 and made us a delicious home-cooked meal. This is a tradition I wanted to continue. I work, and my husband’s been making movies for the past few years, so I use stuff out of the box all the time, but once a week I make and freeze different purees. Then, even during a busy week, I add them to everything to make meals yummier and more nutritious.”

Amazon.com Review
It has become common knowledge that childhood obesity rates are increasing every year. But the rates continue to rise. And between busy work schedules and the inconvenient truth that kids simply refuse to eat vegetables and other healthy foods, how can average parents ensure their kids are getting the proper nutrition and avoiding bad eating habits?

As a mother of three, Jessica Seinfeld can speak for all parents who struggle to feed their kids right and deal nightly with dinnertime fiascos. As she wages a personal war against sugars, packaged foods, and other nutritional saboteurs, she offers appetizing alternatives for parents who find themselves succumbing to the fastest and easiest (and least healthy) choices available to them. Her modus operandi? Her book is filled with traditional recipes that kids love, except they’re stealthily packed with veggies hidden in them so kids don’t even know! With the help of a nutritionist and a professional chef, Seinfeld has developed a month’s worth of meals for kids of all ages that includes, for example, pureed cauliflower in mac and cheese, and kale in spaghetti and meatballs. She also provides revealing and humorous personal anecdotes, tear–out shopping guides to help parents zoom through the supermarket, and tips on how to deal with the kid that “must have” the latest sugar bomb cereal.

But this book also contains much more than recipes and tips. By solving problems on a practical level for parents, Seinfeld addresses the big picture issues that surround childhood obesity and its long–term (and ruinous) effects on the body. With the help of a prominent nutritionist, her book provides parents with an arsenal of information related to kids’ nutrition so parents understand why it’s important to throw in a little avocado puree into their quesadillas. She discusses the critical importance of portion size, and the specific elements kids simply must have (as opposed to adults) in order to flourish now and in the future: protein, calcium, vitamins, and Omega 3 and 6 fats.

Jessica Seinfeld‘s book is practical, easy–to–read, and a godsend for any parent that wants their kids to be healthy for a long time to come.

Bob Greene, author of The Best Life Diet:
“I found the techniques for adding vegetables to meals extremely creative and the recipes fantastic! Deceptively Delicious is a must have for your healthy kitchen.”

Well known health and wellness blog Basil and Spice reviewed Deceptively Delicious recently.  Click here for the full article.

“Recently, I reviewed Deceptively Delicious, by Jessica Seinfeld, wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld. The author has been plagued with the same complaints all mothers have–“One won’t eat! The other is picky! They say it’s disgusting!” Dinner hour, an unpleasant way to wrap up the day, is one of the largest obstacles mothers face. Rather than resorting to takeout Chinese or chicken nuggets from the freezer, Jessica has become an expert at hiding vegetables and fruits in family favorites, making dining with the children a happier healthier experience.”  MORE
