No Whine with Dinner Makes Mealtime Fun for Moms and Kids

Do you ever wish you could invite a registered dietitian into your kitchen during mealtimes to peer over your shoulder and help you modify your favorite meals into healthier options for your family?

If you do, then Janice Newell Bissex, MS, RD and Liz Weiss, MS, RD, of the award-winning website Meal Makeover Moms, have the perfect solution with their latest cookbook, No Whine with Dinner (M3 Press, 2011).

The book contains 150 recipes that were tested by their own families and offers advice on choosing “healthy basics” from the grocery store – from fresh fruits and vegetables to convenience foods like jarred pasta sauce and salsa.

“We don’t believe in ‘kid food,'” said Bissex and Weiss in the book’s forward. “All of our recipes are made with color and flavor in mind and incorporate nutritious ingredients into their essence.

Recipes like Quick Apple Sausage Quesadillas, packed with protein and flavor, have weeknight appeal while Carrot Patch Cupcakes lets you indulge in dessert while taking in a boost of vitamin A.

When Bissex and Weiss conducted a reader survey of over 500 moms nationwide, picky eaters who whine and complain were identified as the number one obstacle to getting children to eat healthy, well-balanced meals.

Parents will appreciate the real-life tips from moms and dads about how to get your picky eater to try new and nutritious foods, such as “put parsley on everything” so your kids get used to eating greens on their food and “choose a ‘try it’ food every time you shop” to encourage kids to eat outside of their comfort zones.
