Sneaking Veggies into Recipes: Good Idea or Start of Unhealthy Eating Habits?

Some of my "mom friends" have been talking about making recipes from one of two books (I'm sure there are more out there): The Sneaky Chef and Deceptively Delicious. The premise of these books is to get your picky eater to eat more veggies, by adding them (read: sneak them or deceptively and inconspicuously add them) unknowingly into recipes that your kids eat.

My question: is this the start of kids NOT eating vegetables throughout their life (since they are hidden in the recipe), or is it just a helpful tool to get them through their "picky" phase?

Plus: any tips on helping your kids eat veggies and other foods during their "picky" phase...and how long does the "picky" phase last?!
