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.

There are a few recipies it will be nice to have like homemade graham crackers or veggie nuggets. The book itself would be a wonderful present for a first time mom. The enhanced edition is not worth the extra money. All the videos cause the book to freeze up and force close. It also took up a crazy amount of space. I had archive so much stuff. Which I will have to do anytime I want a recipe. I will just take the time to copy the ones I want and delete the book. I honestly would rather just have my money beck since it doesnt work most of the time anyway.
Good cookbook , bought in hardcover. Unable to load on my Nook hd. Too bad, because it was cheaper in the nook version.
