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!

Must-Have Cookbook for Busy Families!, By Lori Lange
September 18, 2012
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.

Fearless Mommy Leader Makes Cooking Fun + Seriously Easy., By lady gipp
September 18, 2012
While I'm no stranger to the kitchen, cooking for a toddler takes some getting used to. I had the impression that my dear girl would eat whatever delightful thing I put before her. Enter veteran Mama and Weelicious founder, Catherine McCord, who's joyful and delicious recipes are just the beginning. Her keen understanding of kids relationships with food makes the opening pages of this book a must-read for all new and even seasoned mothers--and her honest and easy advice is easy to adopt. Best of all, her oozing enthusiasm for the task of feeding our littles and turning them into great eaters is so contagious. This is my new go-to baby shower and welcome baby gift, and one I'll turn to myself over and over again to help me rethink dinner in a more accessibly, playful way for my own family.
