The newest book in Pantley’s bestselling No-Cry series will get kids to eat their veggies—and enjoy them!

“Elizabeth Pantley has once again penned a brilliant guide for parents on a common childhood theme. With savvy tips and tricks to usher our kids into the joys of eating, it is a sanity-saver!”
—Christine Louise Hohlbaum, author, The Power of Slow

“The No-Cry Picky Eater Solution eases parents’ fears and provides practical, simple solutions that really work.”
—Stephanie Gallagher, The Iron Chef Mom, http://www.theironchefmom.com

“It’s simple and doable, and it works.”
—Missy Chase Lapine, author, The Sneaky Chef

Nearly 85% of parents say they have a child who is or has been a picky eater.  Feeding a picky child three meals plus snacks –every day—creates horrific family stress.

Parents want their kids to eat well—but they don’t want the frustration of mealtime battles. In the end, it’s chicken nuggets…again. Enter parenting expert Elizabeth Pantley, whose new book, THE NO-CRY PICKY EATER SOLUTION: Gentle Ways to Encourage Your Child to Eat—and Eat Healthy (McGraw-Hill Professional; October 2011; Paperback, $17.00), will help parents feed their  children healthy foods without the stress, fights and tears.

Pantley reassures her readers that picky eating is rooted in normal childhood behavior, and acknowledges the tremendous amount of stress this causes for parents. She worked with the parents of 294 very picky eaters to arrive at this collection of fun, easy and amazingly successful tips to overcome the pickiness.

As with her other bestselling No-Cry books, The No-Cry Picky Eater Solution offers respectful, effective solutions to the problem, along with a healthy dose of reassurance and motivation. Pantley draws ideas from new research and from her readers around the world for getting children to eat nutritious food. The book is sprinkled with quotes from real parents and photos of their once-picky children enjoying their fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins.

As a bonus, the book also features recipe contributions from popular family cookbook authors who share an assortment of their favorite healthy, child-friendly recipes. Featuring fun names and photos of kids enjoying the food, any picky eater will be begging for more! The recipe collections includes such culinary treasures as:

Sneaky Chef Brainy Brownies and Fabulous Fried Rice by Missy Chase Lapine (The Sneaky Chef)
Starry Night Stew and Lord of the Apple Rings by Jennifer Cardin (Toddler Café)
Leaf Us Alone Brussels Sprouts and Happy Hummus by Lisa Barnes (Petit Appetit)
Grow-a-Garden Dip and Sweet Potato Veggie Nachos by Barbara Berry (Green Princess Cookbook)
Best Ever Granola and Pink Potatoes by Joan Ahlers & Cheryl Tallman (So Easy Toddler Food)
Mexican Lasagna and Fruity Chicken Kebabs by Liz Weiss and Janice Newell Bissex (Welcoming Kitchen)

Parents are increasingly aware that picky eating can lead to weight and health issues. With movements such as Jamie Oliver’s “Food Revolution,” Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, and Oprah’s “Family Dinner Experiment,” it is clear that childhood obesity is a major ongoing crisis that parents are set to battle. And with all the anxiety wrapped up in battling with a picky eater, parents need help to get children on the right path to a lifetime of healthy eating. With Pantley’s advice, parents and caregivers can help any fussy eater have wholesome meals while bringing peace and joy back to the dining table.
