Are you looking for healthy and quick recipes for your family? Check out FoodHero.org for an amazing database of recipes that you can search by special diets, number and type of ingredients, and cooking methods or meal type. The website includes a special list of “kid-approved” recipes that have been taste-tested by at least 25 youths throughout Oregon.

Each recipe is printer-friendly and includes nutritional facts. Highlighted recipes even have a video. Check out this Food Hero Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins video! 

The Food Hero website is very interactive, allowing people to save recipes to their profile or even share to Pinterest and Facebook. In addition, there is an option for people to share publicly their feedback, tips, and comments for each recipe. 

With so many great recipes at your fingertips, it’s hard to choose!
