Reviewers Comments: These recipe cards were created to supplement the Teen Parents curriculum, available from the University of Missouri extension program. They include a series of 50 recipes available on 4” x 6” cardstock or as an online PDF.

Recipes are designed especially for pregnant teenagers and teenage parents, and include a variety of child and adolescent friendly foods, such as pizza, taco salad, and shakes. The recipes all have catchy names, such as “Better things to do stew”, “Snack in 5”, “Crunch ‘n munch bean salad”, and “Cheesy taters”. Recipes are divided into several categories: breakfast, snacks for pregnant moms, lunches and snacks for kids, main dishes, soups, side dishes and salads, and desserts. Each recipe card gives the preparation time, serving suggestions, ingredients and yield on the front of the card, and direction for preparation and nutrition information on the back of the card. Nutrition information includes folate, iron and calcium which are of special interest to pregnant teens.

In addition to the recipes, the cards include supplementary cooking information, such as emergency substitutions, measurement equivalents, and how to cook an assortment basic foods, such as rice, pasta, eggs, vegetables in the microwave, and how to cook with herbs and spices. Dividers are also included, as well as blank cards to record notes about ingredient substitutions, actual preparation time, serving suggestions, or additional recipes.

These recipe cards would be a great addition to a class on nutrition for pregnant teenagers or teenage parents, or as a giveaway for a workshop or cooking demonstration.
