and her co-author, Eshun Mott, wrote Whining & Dining when they realized that both their oldest children were living on the beige diet. Their search for a food-friendly resource resulted in the best-selling Whining and Dining. Part parenting manual, part fabulous cookbook, Whining and Dining has tips, anecdotes and recipes that will move your kids out of their picky phase so you can enjoy dinner together again. Even if your kids aren't picky, the foolproof recipes will quickly become family favourites.
Like many parents, Emma Waverman and Eshun Mott, both food professionals, have dumped plates of food in the garbage, they have lied and cajoled, and they have also capitulated and served their kids only the foods they like. They have seen other preschoolers eating broccoli and tofu as snacks and have silently cried in the corner. They have called ice cream a meal and bacon a protein — more than once — but mealtime doesn't have to be a stressful time of day. It can be a place to connect, laugh and annoy each other while you eat.
Don't miss recipes include: banana oatmeal bread, ginger chicken stir-fry, and homemade macaroni and cheese.
Emma and Eshun believe that there is a way to feed your kids healthy foods that they will eat, and that they will learn to trust their bodies and start choosing foods that are delicious and good for them. Through trial and error, the authors have developed 100+ recipes that are a hit with kids and adults alike. Whining & Dining doesn't pretend to have all the answers, but it will at least make sure that you eat well.
