Most parents of toddlers are familiar with the tiny face of disgust peering back at them above a plate of peas—or bananas, green beans, the list goes on—shaking from side to side: No way. Wanting to teach children about nutrition in a fun and inviting way, a group of local parents have teamed up to create Kitchen Club Kids, a series of three award-winning ‘recipe adventure story books,’ for ages 2 to 6. Each book, End of the Rainbow Fruit Salad, Garden Safari Vegetable Soup, and Feed Your Senses Homemade Bread (due out later this year), includes a recipe told in traditional storybook format, as well as the real recipe the story is based on at the end of the book, so that parents and children can work together in the kitchen to prepare nutritious meals. Eluka Moore, Kitchen Club Kids co-creator and author, and soon-to-be mom of two, shared the genesis story of the books, as well as tips for parents on teaching their kids about nutrition and trying new foods—even, perhaps, peas.

Now I’m not made of stone, an affectionate handmade card gets me every time, but the rest? Honestly, I would skip the holiday altogether if it meant eliminating the ads, commercials and hype. That being said, I did, purely for curiosity’s sake, browse the interweb to see what was trending for moms. These are the top 10 gifts virtual men have chosen for the moms in their lives:
