The “Supernatural” Star, His Wife Vicki and Their Two Kids Share A Fresh, Fun Approach to Forging Healthy, Grown-Up Eating Habits and Strong Family Bonds in the Kitchen
THE ADVENTUROUS EATERS CLUB Mastering the Art of Family Mealtime
By Misha & Vicki Collins
Misha Collins, star of the hit TV show Supernatural and social media influencer, and his wife, Vicki, are no strangers to family mealtime battles, but they knew that processed foods like chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and macaroni and cheese were setting their kids up for a lifetime of bad eating and poor health. So, they hit on the idea to embrace what they love best — adventure — and invited their kids into the kitchen, encouraging them to play and explore. They share their secrets to success and more than 100 recipes in their first book, THE ADVENTUROUS EATER’S CLUB: Mastering the Art of Family Mealtime (HarperOne; Hardcover; November 5, 2019). Over time, their children developed a more diverse palate and sense of autonomy as they learned to see food as something to celebrate with the entire Collins family benefitting.
In The Adventurous Eaters Club, Misha and Vicki candidly 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 Salad Popsicles, Pink Gnocchi, Shitake Crispies, Wishing Well Soup and much more, The Adventurous Eaters Club provides support, encouragement, and practical advice parents need to turn their kids into adventurous and healthy eaters.
