Personalized Plates for Picky Palates: Moms can Satisfy all With One Recipe, Four Ways
Date:5/14/2008

PITTSBURGH, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Young children can be picky eaters, spooked by strong flavors or unfamiliar ingredients, so family dinners tend to be seasoned to the taste of the pickiest eaters. But just because the three-year-old prefers milder foods doesn't mean the rest of family can't enjoy something with more zip. To help parents please all of the diverse tastes of their hungry hoard without spending all night in the kitchen, Mealtime.org has devised an intriguing dinnertime idea that easily creates four dinners out of one.

With One Recipe, Four Ways, moms and dads can start by preparing a basic kid-friendly recipe that makes enough for the whole family. Then, while the food is cooking, they whip up small amounts of simple stir-ins or add-ons from easy-to-use ingredients, like canned foods. In the time it takes to prepare an everyday dinner, they can transform portions of the basic recipe into up to three additional dinners that have a little more zest.

Mealtime.org's One Recipe, Four Ways portfolio includes four easy, nutritious dinners developed by Andrew Schloss. He's a chef, columnist, and author of 13 published cookbooks, including Mastering the Grill (written with David Joachim), which was a New York Times bestseller. Most importantly, Chef Schloss is a father with years of experience cooking for his own brood. Parents can tantalize the taste buds of everyone in the family with recipes based on fun kid-favorites, like Family Fiesta Soft Tacos, Tasty Mixed-Up Mac and Cheese, Tutti-Frutti Teriyaki Chicken and Yummy Yammy BBQ Chicken.

"When parents expand dinnertime options beyond the tried-and-true favorites and encourage their children to try something a little different, they're setting the stage for a life-long appreciation of food," said Chef Schloss. "One recipe that you can prepare four different ways gives parents an easy way to do just that."

Chef Schloss designed One Recipe, Four Ways to solve several of the problems inherent in feeding a family with individual likes and dislikes:

-- Children's tastes evolve and parents never know when they might be

ready to try something new. The food they rejected last week may

become their new favorite, so it is important to keep offering options

beyond their current tastes and introduce new foods to their children

so they'll enjoy eating for a lifetime.

-- Parents are a model for how their children think about eating and food.

If kids see their parents enjoying new foods, they are likely to do the

same.

One Recipe, Four Ways is just one of the many mealtime solutions from the Canned Food Alliance. Log on to http://www.mealtime.org to view the One Recipe, Four Ways creations, along with hundreds of healthy and easy-to- prepare recipes that make healthful eating easy.

"Kids are more likely to eat food they've had a hand in preparing," commented Chef Schloss. "They can help out with dinner by adding in the canned ingredients. It's a great way to gets kids eating nutritious foods, and makes it fun for them too."
