Cookbook benefits non-profit organization dedicated to influencing

children's eating habits through education

PARKER, Colo., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of its 35th anniversary, the Wheat Foods Council today unveiled Food for Thought from Parents to Children, an educational cookbook featuring recipes from celebrity chef and mother of three, Chef Gale Gand, and parents across America. The cookbook, available at http://www.wheatfoods.org, showcases wheat-based recipes and addresses the importance of nutrition education for children, emphasizing a parent's role in a child's healthy diet.

A portion of cookbook proceeds benefits Spoons Across America, a not-for-profit organization that works to positively influence the eating habits of children through hands-on education. The cookbook is available for $3.50 and can be purchased online at http://www.wheatfoods.org.

"Considering more than 15 percent of children in the United States are obese, we believe parents need to take a more active role in their children's diets in order to instill healthy eating habits," said Marcia Scheideman M.S., R.D., president of the Wheat Foods Council. "This book arms parents with information and guidance that will enable them to communicate with their children about the foods they eat and their ability to affect their health."

Food for Thought from Parents to Children features 30 recipes developed by parents throughout America and five exclusive creations from Chef Gand, award-winning pastry chef, cookbook author and Food Network personality. Nutritious, wheat-based recipes, in the categories of breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts, are accompanied by educational facts about the featured foods including nutritional content, portion sizes and food origin. Also included is a guide that parents can use to ensure time
