Teach Your Kids Healthy Cooking Habits With KIDS COOKING for Mommies

BATON ROUGE, LA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2009) - With Mother's Day around the corner, healthy cooking expert Holly Clegg has made it easy for kids to prepare a memorable meal for Mom on her special day and beyond. KIDS COOKING for Mommies offers 50 yummy make ahead and pantry friendly recipes.

Clegg is author of the best selling trim&TERRIFIC™ cookbook series including Freezer Friendly Meals, Gulf Coast Favorites, Diabetic Cooking (ADA) and Eating Well Through Cancer, written in collaboration with oncologist Gerald Miletello, MD.

Easy recipes and nutrition are a hallmark of all of Ms. Clegg's endeavors who has been dubbed the "Queen of Quick."

"Mothers have what feels like a very small amount of time to help their children develop a lifetime of healthy eating habits," Ms. Clegg says. "My goal was to offer real-world, nutritious and easy to make recipes that kids, from toddlers to tweens, can prepare in a time friendly manner."

More than recipes, the Kitchen Wonderland chapter provides insight on ways Mommies can transform kitchens into child-friendly environments and help children understand the importance of nutrition.

"Rainbow Recipes was my favorite part of KIDS COOKING for Mommies -- teaching kids to consider the color of foods is one way we might encourage our younger generation to eat healthy," Clegg says.

"While taking Mom out to dine would be the ideal, in this economy families are taking another look at home-cooking," Clegg adds. "KIDS COOKING for Mommies was expressly created for busy families."

The cookbook is Ms. Clegg's first collaboration with Mommies Line L.L.C. which produces an extensive series of books "for Mommies," intended to present empowering information for the personal use of women readers.

Environmentally conscious Moms will appreciate that KIDS COOKING for Mommies is available as an e-book for $7.95. Hard copies are available for $12.95 at Lulu.com.

A portion of the proceeds from KIDS COOKING for Mommies will be donated to women's charitable organizations.

Getting your kids to eat fruits and vegetables can be a challenge for any Mom. These kid-friendly recipes include essential nutrients: Sweet Potato Fries and Fantastic Fruit Dip.
