Susan McQuillan, RD (New York, NY) is a registered dietitian, cookbook author, and foodwriter who has contributed to magazines such as Woman s Day, Family Circle, American Health, Prevention, and Cooking Light and has appeared on the Today show and the Food Network.
"Parents and kids alike will have a wonderful time in the kitchen with this delightful collection of over 50 kid-friendly recipes. Registered dietician McQuillan and the stars of Sesame Street compile a wide range of dishes, from classics like Chicken Nuggets, Fish Sticks and Macaroni and Cheese to more exotic fare such as African Peanut Butter Soup and Bert's Tutti Frutti Turkey Salad, which gets a boost of flavor from curry powder. Recipes are simple and straightforward, and each has at least one step a child can perform. Parents will like the fact that the book offers plenty of healthy alternatives to junk-food snacks and dishes traditionally high in fat; lowfat yogurt, for example, substitutes for mayonnaise in tartar sauce and sour cream in stuffed potatoes. Kids will also enjoy learning how favorites like peanut butter and applesauce are made. Packed with jokes, tips and food trivia from Grover, the Count, Big Bird and others, this title lives up to its pedigree, making both learning and cooking fun for kids."
