When I picked up Lynne Rossetto Kasper and Sally Swift’s book The Splendid Table’s How to Eat Supper, I didn’t realize that it was a cookbook based on a Public Radio show. All I cared about was the gorgeous spoonful of a bright golden yellow potato, onion and almond concoction (“Almond-Turmeric Potatoes” p. 289) pictured on the cover. I am a huge fan of Public Radio, though, so when I finally settled into a comfy chair at home and made this discovery, I was pleasantly surprised. I’ve never heard a food show on the radio before (WBHM doesn’t carry it) but it makes me happy to know one is out there.

It’s Not About the Broccoli addresses something every parent has to deal with multiple times a day when your child asks for food. Parents are often inundated with how to books and instructional videos on parenting issues, and food tends to be a top contender among them. It’s Not About the Broccoli gives parents simple structural guides to help children develop healthy eating habits. This book is not about sneaking healthy foods into your kid’s diet or tricking them into liking veggies. Dina Rose is all about communicating with your kids, teaching them how to taste food (and not to immediately reject it!) and strives to take the stress out of mealtime.
