Overview

The social media influencer and wildly popular star of Supernatural and his wife invite families to become food adventurers--teaching parents how to help their children cultivate a lifelong, healthy, and joyful relationship with real food.

Chicken nuggets. Hot dogs. Macaroni and cheese. They're easy to throw together after a long and stressful work day and even better, our kids love them. When Misha and Vicki Collins' son, West, was a toddler, he rejected any food that wasn't bland and beige. At first, Misha and Vicki succumbed--anything to end mealtime battles and get West to eat. But the processed fruit packs and buttered noodles they fed him were setting him up for a lifetime of bad eating--and poor health.

Misha and Vicki hit on an ingenious idea, to rely on what they love best--adventure--and invited their kids into the kitchen, allowing them to play and explore. Over time, their children each developed a more adventurous palate and sense of autonomy and learned to see food as something to celebrate. The whole Collins clan benefitted--and strengthened their family's bonds.

In The Adventurous Eaters Club, Misha and Vicki chronicle their story of transformation: how they went from harried parents squeezing processed yogurt into their two-year-old's mouth to parents whose children eat salad as comfort food, and how they created a home where mealtime doesn't involve coercion, trickery, or tears.

Drawing on nutrition studies, child development research, interviews with early childhood educators, and advice from pediatricians and therapists, Misha and Vicki distill the strategies they've found most useful in forming their Adventure eating philosophy into 10 essential food rules. Filled with funny stories, tips that work, beautiful full-color photographs, and over 100 creative, delicious, whimsical recipes little hands will love to eat and help prepare--including Green Eggs & Ham Popovers, Shitake Crispies, Salad Popsicles, and Kale and Bacon Sushi--The Adventurous Eaters Club provides the support, encouragement, and practical advice parents need to turn their kids into lifetime adventurous and healthy eaters.
