Take mealtimes back with Food Fight for Parents of Picky Eaters. Chef Gigi exposes the habits that inadvertently reinforce picky eating and helps parents navigate the challenging landscape by showing them the science behind flavor and awakening them to the culinary magic of umami–just like professional chefs have done for years. Included are both simple techniques and more advanced tactics to encourage more adventurous eating, as well as over 60 delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes the whole family will enjoy.
“I think that the time Gigi Gaggero took to thoroughly explain the root of picky eating, the science behind it, and the advice she gives is great. My book is highlighted like crazy! She gives practical reasons to why our common mistakes don’t work (ie, bribery, threats, coaxing, disguising foods…), and gives solid advice on how to approach mealtime so it doesn’t seem so daunting.”
“I’m looking forward to trying out more recipes in the book. I’ve started off with breakfast, and have made the peanut butter and jelly smoothie and the breakfast quesadilla. With both of these foods, my 5 year old was apprehensive to say the least; however, because he was able to help me prepare them and because I gave him close-ended choices (as the book recommends), he ended up eating and enjoying both!”
“I liked her thoughtful explanations as to why our previous food tactics aren’t working. There wasn’t any blame, or fault placed, just guidance on how it can be improved, and sensible reasoning behind them. I always tend to use too much verbiage when it comes to explaining new foods. The author guides parents to “not discuss new foods unless the child asks, and if they do, respond matter-of-factly.” That stuck out at me. I’m also looking forward to trying more of her recipes to help incorporate more veggies in my kiddo’s diet.”
