)-- "It is impossible to ignore the fact that food-related battles rank right at the top of the daily list of parental challenges,” write Laura A. Jana, M.D., FAAP and Jennifer Shu, M.D., FAAP, co-authors of the book, Food Fights: Winning the Nutritional Challenges of Parenthood Armed with Insights, Humor, and a Bottle of Ketchup.
Cara Natterson, M.D., gives some tips to parents for handling food battles with children in this video: http://youtu.be/PTu_GVRnNQ4. Education is one “weapon.” Entertainment could be another, as described in this video: http://youtu.be/oUypaS5PrW8. What about having a good recipe with favorite ingredients and flavors?
"How perfect is this recipe for me as I just bought several pounds of chicken because it was on a buy one, get one free deal. I wasn't sure what I would be making with all of it, so it's in the freezer and now I have a new fantastic recipe to try," Heidi Leonard, Owner of Operation Organization, a professional organizing service, said of a recipe from the Saturday Evening Pot.
Through The Chef’s Challenge at The Saturday Evening Pot, individuals or families can enter for a chance to receive a recipe customized to include a favorite ingredient and flavor preferences, and with food allergies or sensitivities in mind, where applicable. This event is ideal for parents struggling through meal time battles with children, individuals desiring a healthier diet who would like to incorporate more of a certain type of food into their diet but are not sure where to start, and people who are of the millions of Americans suffering from food allergies or intolerances.
"Having a family member with food allergies or sensitivities makes it challenging at times to find an allergy-friendly recipe that the entire family loves so that moms or dads don't have to make two meals,” stated Suzzanne Myer, M.S., R.D., C.D. in the state of Washington specializing in food sensitivities. “Having a custom recipe designed with specific favorite ingredients and that excludes the allergen is the next best thing to having a personal chef."
Recipes from The Saturday Evening Pot have been featured in The Christmas Table cookbook, by the national bestselling cookbook publisher, Gooseberry Patch, and in the Mint Life blog on the award-winning Mint.com financial website.
