Team Nutrition Releases "Recipes for Healthy Kids Cookbook for Schools"
30 recipes were chosen out of a Healthy Kids Competition launced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in September 2010. The undertaking supported the First Lady's Let's Move initiative in collaboration with the American Culinary Federation and School Nutrition Association.
The top recipes in each category have been standardized in cookbooks for homes, child care centers, and schools.
The cookbooks feature recipes with foods that children and adults alike should consume more of: dark green and orange vegetables, dry beans and peas, and whole grains.
The cookbooks and recipes are available on the Team Nutrition Web site at www.teamnutrition.usda.gov. The cookbooks should be published by the end of 2012.
