Jessica Seinfeld Embroiled in Plagerism Flap
The controversy simmers over allegations that Jessica Seinfeld’s new book, Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food, folded in recipes from The Sneaky Chef by Missy Chase Lapine. And it’s creating quite a stir.

But it’s not like playing hide and seek with kid’s food is new thing, right?

Do you sneak healthy food into your kid’s meals?
