The Sneaky Chef Review

The Sneaky Chef had a great idea when creating these products. She hid a bunch of vegetables in her pasta sauce so that picky kids would eat their vegetables without knowing. I believe that if a kid does like vegetables, of course you don't need to hide them but if you have a child that refuses to eating vegetables, these products are for you. These products were created by Missy Chase Lapine, New York Times bestselling cookbook author of The Sneaky Chef.

The Sneaky Chef Pasta Sauces are available in Cheesy Red and Smooth Red. Each half cup of sauce has a serving of vegetables. These sauces do not contain any preservatives or unnatural ingredients. Ingredients include tomatoes, sweet potato, olive oil, carrot, red bell pepper, cauliflower, zucchini, onion, celery, salt, garlic, squash and spices. It is very tasty and you cannot tell that there are all of these vegetables in the sauce.

I think that this is a good way to introduce picky eaters to more vegetables. I would give kids this sauce and let them know that the vegetables are in it afterward. I would tell them that they do like vegetables and start introducing some of these vegetables in their diet, especially carrots and sweet potatoes which are sweet and milder than some vegetables.

The Sneaky Chef also makes no-nut butter which is peanut, tree nut and soy free. Although nut butters are very healthy, they are often banned from schools due to a high number of kids having a peanut allergy. This no-nut butter really does taste a lot like peanut butter. I think that on a sandwich with jam, you would not be able to tell the difference. It is made from golden peas and can be used in place of any recipe that calls for peanut butter.
