Raising children includes every responsibility you can possibly imagine. Among that long list is teaching those young people quality eating habits. In Millie's situation, she was a dedicated member of Weight Watchers so eating correctly and healthfully happened as a matter of daily living.
She allowed and encouraged her children to experience the kitchen and make a few things they liked, and this was a right step by helping them feel comfortable with early stages of food preparation. After creating 3 “adult” cookbooks, Millie Snyder thought she was missing an important piece and need to create a children’s edition of Lean & Luscious.
With this children’s edition let your children experiment and become familiar with trying a recipe and when they gain some confidence and ask you to taste what they created make sure you say, YES! That will speak volumes of your approval and permission to keep doing it as they grow. In the not too distant future, they will make something from Lean and Luscious, Lean and Luscious Meatless, or More Lean and Luscious Mediterranean for you and that meal will be one you won’t have to prepare!
