Weelicious - 140 fast, fresh, easy family recipes[The winner of this giveaway is Trisha. Thanks to all who entered - I wish I had one for each of you! And thanks to William Morrow for sponsoring it. You may purchase Weelicious at Amazon ]
Very cool cookbook by Catherine McCord, founder of the website Weelicious.com.
Loaded with gorgeous pictures that will motivate you to try these unusually healthy but tasty recipes - all perfect for pleasing the eye and palate of adults and children. Simply brilliant strategy for getting your child used to eating good food:
Our kids can be great eaters!
After her son was born in 2007, Catherine McCord sought out resources to teach her how to prepare fresh, healthy, appealing meals for young kids--but she came up empty. With culinary school under her belt and a hungry baby to feed, Catherine started Weelicious.com, a website that has since grown into a comprehensive offering of kid-friendly family meals.
Complete with beautiful color photos, tips and tools, lists of pantry staples, feeding plans, and more than seventy new recipes never before seen on Weelicious .com, Weelicious makes it easy to get kids eating healthy foods from their first bite. Catherine teaches parents how to turn their kids into great eaters who appreciate food and are open to exciting new flavors. With Weelicious you will:
• Stop being a short-order cook--whip up unique, delicious, and healthy recipes that everyone in your family, no matter what their age, will love.
• Inspire your kids to eat healthfully without resorting to sneaking or trickery--discover a wealth of great tips for getting kids to eat just by paying attention to how their food is prepared and presented.
• Get kids in the kitchen from day one--introduce kids to a variety of foods and include them in the cooking process to set them up for years of positive eating habits.
• Shop effectively (and make it fun)--bring your kids to the farmers' market or grocery store for a hands-on learning experience when it comes to meal planning.
• Give kids some choice--strategically allow them to have more input and control over what goes into their bodies so they can "own" their choices.
From first-food favorites such as Sweet Potato-Coconut Puree and The Teething Cookie to family-friendly Veggie Nuggets, Rice Cooker Mac and Cheese, Chicken on a Stick, Shrimp Tacos, and Cheesy Chicken Taquitos to treats like Banana Bread Cake, Raspberry-Cream Cheese Heart Tarts, and Chocolate Velvet Beet Cupcakes, these recipes are perfect for little taste buds and sophisticated adult palates alike--and best of all, every single recipe has been created with health and wholesomeness in mind.
More than just a cookbook, Weelicious is the ultimate cooking bible for families--a resource that will stand the test of time as the family grows!
You know you want this cookbook! William Morrow has set aside one for a MommyLife reader. Leave a comment for a drawing 10/12!

I try to quit buying cookbooks - my collection gets too large, but they are just so tempting. I would love to have this cookbook to help my kids (and me!) learn to eat better.
