It must have been a case of plagiarism on Seinfeld's part.. I mean, how could two different people have come up with such a magnificently idiotic premise independently of each other? If we follow this to it's logical conclusion, our kids will still be trying to get a balanced, nutritious diet from hot chocolate and brownies long after Mummy (or their Nanny)is no longer hiding the "good stuff" inside. I gotta' say, the sheer magnitude of the stupidity of these two books is utterly appalling.

Lynn, Right on... Slipping spinach into a brownie ..doesn't teach kids to like spinach .. Give 'em the real thing (don't over cook it) and keep making 'em try it .. or if that fails use my mom's trick 'catsup'.. To this day I prefer my spinach with catsup, but a can will eat it without.. like most grown-ups ..

As a single mother of 3 (now all grown - thank the lord!) I can vouch for your method, it would probably work better than you think - and when it doesn't, just hold them down and shovel the veggies down their throat. Who has time to "hide" vegies - either they eat what's on their plates or they don't eat! Obviously, Seinfield has too much time on her hands...probably because of the housekeeper, nannies, etc that pick up the slack allowing her the time to teach her children that they rule the house and don't have to follow any of their parent's rules, except of course the whole thing about lying... I admit to trying a few "devious" techniques to get my kids to eat vegies, but it was more along the lines of using special seasoning methods, etc. Hot chocolate in mashed potatoes - come on! And what kid doesn't like mashed potatoes. Maybe Seinfeld just needs to hire a better chef...
