Lapine's first book, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals, became a best seller (and stayed in the news, in part, because of controversy-manufactured or not-surrounding similarities in the recipes in Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious). Her basic trick for sneaking nutrition into children's food is to incorporate a vegetable or fruit puree into a dish so that it goes unnoticed; some mothers of picky eaters loved her first book, while others disliked an approach they viewed as based on deceit. Now she employs the same basic tactics to get grown men to eat their vegetables (and other healthy foods). The recipes, with cutesy titles like Not-for-Chicks Chicken Salad and Stuffed Manli-Cotti, feature icons indicating if they are low in carbs and/or sugar, high in omega-3s, and other health benefits; however, nutritional analyses are not included.
