Earlier this week, radio host Stefanie Sacks interviewed our staff dietitian Diana Rice about cooking and eating together as a family on her radio show, Stirring the Pot. Stefanie and Diana chatted about the history of The Kids Cook Monday, some of the top challenges of regular family meals and what’s next for the campaign.
Listen to the full interview here on 88.3 WPPB!
Sacks is also a culinary nutritionist and author, most recently of the book What the Fork Are You Eating? The book is a useful guide for parents who want to feed their families wholesome, natural foods but don’t know where to start when faced with the thousands of choices offered in the average supermarket. Should you choose local or organic? Antibiotic or pesticide free? What the Fork Are You Eating? can help you decide.
The book also includes 50 simple, healthy recipes that are perfect for cooking with your family, including this week’s Kids Cook Monday featured recipe, Red Quinoa Tabouli.
Tabouli is a Middle Eastern dish traditionally made with bulgur wheat. This twist on the classic dish features quinoa instead, packing in protein and vitamins… Get Recipe.
