STRESS-FREE HEALTHY FOOD YOU CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT SERVING
The Standard American Diet is sadly becoming the source for an array of chronic childhood illnesses. As children’s bodies develop they need a foundation of health that includes the nutrition that they get from eating vegetables. We all want our children to be healthy but many times, our busy lives leave us struggling to put healthy meals on the table in a reasonable amount of time. This book solves the problem of providing quick, healthy meals for picky eaters or anyone struggling with what to serve for dinner.
Leann takes the burden off of moms that want to feed their family good nutrition without the hassle of added preparation, by using veggies in the form of baby food, organic vegetable powders and other tricks, Leann sneaks additional nutrients into family favorite recipes in a snap - making picky eaters a thing of the past and bringing harmony to the dinner table.
Leann Forst is a happily married wife, mother of 2 wonderful children, board certified holistic health practitioner, author, speaker, medical researcher and health education advocate.
After her son became chronically sick with asthma at the age of 2 and she suffered through multiple miscarriages, she refused to accept the notion presented by conventional doctors that her son would live his life on medication and she would not be able to have a 2nd child. She began her quest to learn everything she could about health and disease. She now makes it her life’s mission to share information about how nearly all diseases can be reversed by diet and lifestyle.
Leann speaks frequently at schools, hospitals, organizations and on radio shows. She is also a principal at Groovy Beets Natural Family Health, providing individual and group health coaching. Leann has authored 2 books: “100 Ways to Lose Weight” and “How to Get Your Kids to Beg for Veggies” available on Amazon.

How to Get Your Kids to Beg for
Veggies by Leann Forst is a valuable and informative recipe cookbook
for parents of young children. The author starts by explaining the
benefits of a healthy, REAL food diet for children and exactly how much
of each different nutrient our bodies need on a daily basis. The book is
conveniently divided into sections containing breakfast, lunch/dinner
and snack/treat recipes. Each recipe has a full color picture,
ingredient list, instructions and complete nutritional information. All
of the recipes have hidden healthy vegetables ingredients but are very
kid-friendly options. For instance, some breakfast choices include a
Chocolate Protein Spinach Smoothie and Creamy Peach Oatmeal, while a
tasty lunch choice could be a Pizza Pocket Sandwich or Savory Turkey
Veggie Meatballs. Snack time slump? No problem, just whip up some
Chocolate Superfood Muffins, Beet Brownies or Banana Avocado Chocolate
Pudding! I will definitely be trying out some of these recipes with my
son very soon!
I enjoyed reading How to Get Your Kids to Beg for Veggies and, as a mom
myself, I can really appreciate a book containing tasty AND healthy
recipe options for my little picky eater. All of the recipes were listed
in a very easy to follow format and I loved that each recipe had a full
color picture included. The book contained a wide variety of recipes as
well as incorporating many different veggie options. I would recommend
this book to all parents of young children, especially those with picky
or inconsistent eaters.
