Personalized Plates for Picky Palates: Moms can Satisfy all With One Recipe, Four Ways

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, 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.

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.

"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
