From the Back Cover

Our kids can be great eaters!

After her son was born in 2007, Catherine McCord sought out resources to teach her how to prepare fresh, healthy, appealing meals for young kids—but she came up empty. With culinary school under her belt and a hungry baby to feed, Catherine started Weelicious.com, a website that has since grown into a comprehensive offering of kid-friendly family meals.

Complete with beautiful color photos, tips and tools, lists of pantry staples, feeding plans, and more than seventy new recipes never before seen on Weelicious .com, Weelicious makes it easy to get kids eating healthy foods from their first bite. Catherine teaches parents how to turn their kids into great eaters who appreciate food and are open to exciting new flavors. With Weelicious you will:

• Stop being a short-order cook—whip up unique, delicious, and healthy recipes that everyone in your family, no matter what their age, will love.
• Inspire your kids to eat healthfully without resorting to sneaking or trickery—discover a wealth of great tips for getting kids to eat just by paying attention to how their food is prepared and presented.
• Get kids in the kitchen from day one—introduce kids to a variety of foods and include them in the cooking process to set them up for years of positive eating habits.
• Shop effectively (and make it fun)—bring your kids to the farmers’ market or grocery store for a hands-on learning experience when it comes to meal planning.
• Give kids some choice—strategically allow them to have more input and control over what goes into their bodies so they can “own” their choices.

From first-food favorites such as Sweet Potato-Coconut Puree and The Teething Cookie to family-friendly Veggie Nuggets, Rice Cooker Mac and Cheese, Chicken on a Stick, Shrimp Tacos, and Cheesy Chicken Taquitos to treats like Banana Bread Cake, Raspberry-Cream Cheese Heart Tarts, and Chocolate Velvet Beet Cupcakes, these recipes are perfect for little taste buds and sophisticated adult palates alike—and best of all, every single recipe has been created with health and wholesomeness in mind.

More than just a cookbook, Weelicious is the ultimate cooking bible for families—a resource that will stand the test of time as the family grows!

I'm a fan of the Weelicious blog and decided to purchase the cookbook. There are some excellent recipes here that I rely on heavily when cooking for my toddler. I can't remember if these recipes came from her blog or her book (or both), but the sweet potatoes with lime and maple syrup, cottage cheese pancakes, stuffed French toast, (sweet pea risotto - blog only) to name a few - are huge hits with my family. My goal is to try a couple new recipes a week. I am so grateful for Catherine's blog and now, book. I have found that figuring out what to feed my little one (beyond the same old peanut butter and jelly toast) has been overwhelming, frustrating, even stressful, at times. (There is so much pressure to be a perfect mother.) I appreciate the easy, encouraging, helpful tone of the book and blog. This is starting to sound cheesy, but it really has empowered me as a new mom to see that I can cook a fresh and healthy meal for my daughter without feeling burned out and exhausted. Catherine makes it attainable, without the guilt if you take a shortcut. (Catherine, if you are reading this, thank you so much.)

I do have an observation that a previous reviewer mentioned as well: there are less recipes for the in-between toddler who has moved on from purées but is not quite ready to chomp down on thicker slices of meat, thick panini bread, etc. Every child is different, but from 13 months to now (18 months and counting), I have had to pass over numerous recipes that look delicious but won't work from my daughter right now. She is particular about texture and still likes her foods to be easy to chomp on. A number of the meat dishes, sandwiches, etc., that would involve a lot of chewing probably won't work.

Love this cookbook! I've been a follower of the Weelicious website for a long time- it's a great resource for quick and easy family recipes that appeal to both kids and adults. The cookbook is a lot more of the same kinds of goodies- fun, healthy, simple recipes. I love that Catherine's recipes don't have a long list of ingredients and she doesn't have anything too complicated to prepare. My 11 year old went through the book with a stack of sticky notes and tagged a whole bunch of pages of things he wants to try. We've already enjoyed the Breakfast Quesadillas, Turkey- Pesto Meatballs, Cheesy Chicken Taquitos and Chocolate- Peanut Butter Pudding- all big hits! I recommend this cookbook 100% for busy families who need some new meal ideas.

The advice is good in the beginning of the book about getting kids more involved with the meal planning and grocery shopping.
This takes extra thought/time so it's not a magical transition.

Aside from that, the recipes are pretty blah, some downright awful. My husband and I spend a good amount of $ of high quality/organic produce and food products so we had no issue with finding agave nectar or steal cut oats. As the "baker" in the family, I've now tried several of her recipes and in all honesty, the apple cinnamon sticks tasted like dog food and the slow-cooker oatmeal looked as unappetizing as it tasted. The chocolate chip oatmeal banana cookies taste plain awful and also fell apart on the sheet. I just don't think there's been enough recipe testing and feedback.

On a side note, I'm also not a big fan of her photography in the book-- too many "model" shots at the stove, glancing over the photographer's shoulder with a half smile, rather than images of final product. I think the personal imagery should be shown once or twice MAX in a cookbook and the rest of the book focuses on the food-- that's why we bought it, isn't it?

I've made a sampling of recipes out of Weelicious now. I've mainly tried the breakfast recipes and some of the snack/dessert recipes.

I went ahead and bought this book blog-unread after making the chocolate rice crisp-wee treats, which I found about via the Goop newsletter. These are a rice krispie treat with some nut butter. They are good. But all the other recipes I've tried I haven't cared for that much, or had to tweak to make edible, in my opinion. Also I get annoyed at the author's tone after a while. It's that mom blog tone with too many adjectives and making too much of a deal out of a freakin' recipe (like that it will change your life).

One thing I find is the recipes seem a bit too low in fat. This morning I made the breakfast cupcakes, which you can also make as pancakes (what I did). Basically it is a standard pancake recipe but with a nut butter instead of butter. I was about to add melted butter but decided to make a test pancake before altering the recipe. The pancake was just ok. I went ahead and added 4 TB of melted butter and then they became tasty pancakes with better texture (btw, I think 2 TB would probably be enough to fix them). I find this is true of most of her baked or breakfast recipes -- she tends to omit the standard melted butter or oil that most recipes would include. Maybe she is trying to substitute nut butters for butter, which isn't lower fat, but just messes up the texture.

I also tried the beet heart cookies. More like a slightly sweet beet soft cracker or something. I think part of the problem was in how much beet to add. Her instructions are pretty good (1/2 cup of grated beet) but I guess a weight would be useful here.
