Don’t Read This on an Empty Stomach…

What do you get when you challenge a group of mom bloggers
to create kid-friendly recipes under $8 using eight healthy ingredients? You
get “Gr8,” good-for-kids treats that even grown-ups will love.  If you’re looking for a healthy way to cure a
raging sweet tooth or your little one is a chipsoholic, read on.  

But wait.  Before I
get to the recipes—and before you start wondering whether Save the Children is
becoming the new Food Network—let me explain our foray into the foodie world.  Coinciding with the G8 nutrition summit
earlier this month, attended by President Obama and other world leaders, Save
the Children released a new report on child nutrition, called “Food for Thought”
(get it?).

According to the “Food for Thought” report, 165 million
children globally are malnourished, a condition affecting a child’s cognitive
abilities, overall health and physical strength.  Meanwhile, 23 million U.S. children are
overweight or obese, which can be just as detrimental to their health and

Tri-state-area mom bloggers with Carolyn Miles, Save the Children’s president and CEO, at an advance screening of “Man of Steel,” which, in conjunction, helped to raise awareness about the “We Can Be Heroes Campaign,” a Save the Children and DC Entertainment initiative working to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa.

Leading up to the G8 summit, 20 mom bloggers posted and tweeted kid-friendly, “Gr8 recipes” to raise awareness of childhood malnutrition around the world and show parents in America easy, inexpensive (yet tasty!) ways to make healthier choices for their children.

The result? Mouthwatering recipes that take minutes to
prepare, such as this quesadilla with a twist: on a whole-wheat tortilla, swap
greasy cheese with natural peanut butter, top it off with some fruit and,
voila—a delicious dessert that’s nutritious to boot. Or try my personal
favorite, crispy kale chips, which I made last night. Check out all the recipes
by following the ‘Gr8’ healthy kids’ recipe links below.

A big thank you from Save the Children goes out to all the
mom bloggers for sharing their recipes, making calls to action through social
media, and urging White House and government officials to ensure children get
the nutrition they need in their first 1,000 days.  We also wanted give a shout-out to the mom
bloggers who participated in an early screening of the “Man of Steel” movie as
part of the “We Can Be Heroes” campaign, a Save the Children and DC
Entertainment initiative to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa.

To end on a positive note, here is some promising news: At
this month’s Nutrition for Growth Summit in London, the Obama administration
pledged to reduce stunting among 2 million children through its Feed the Future
program, as well as committed more than $1 billion in funding for global
maternal and child nutrition programs. A great start, but there is still more
to be done.

Now go back to those tasty recipes.  But if you start salivating just by looking at
the photos, you can’t say I didn’t warn you!

Thank you!
