About Catherine McCord

A native of Louisville, KY, Catherine modeled around the world in her teens, spending every spare second learning about and experiencing local cuisines. Craving more, she saved up her money and enrolled at The Institute for Culinary Education in Manhattan. When her beautiful baby boy Kenya was born, she spent hours on the internet researching feeding tips and fresh, healthy recipe ideas, but came up short. She found herself having conversations with friends who struggled with the same issues and quickly became their go-to girl for baby and child-friendly recipes. Now, Catherine shares her extensive research and experimentation in her own family kitchen on Weelicious.com and with her growing international audience on Facebook and Twitter. With a new recipe or tip debuting daily and how-to cooking videos posted every Friday, Weelicious is a wealth of information for parents, and a visual delight for foodies of any age.

Chicken, Corn and Cauliflower

Chicken, Corn and Cauliflower

Corn is such a versatile food. Not only is it amazing on the cob, when it’s added to purees, it has a creamy, starchy quality. The corn in this puree gives it not only a sweet taste, but also a creamy texture. Since this recipe has a protein, vegetable and starch, it’s a great option [...]

Banana Avocado Mousse

Bananas and avocado are not only monsters of nutrition, but they also make a creamy and delicious combination for babies and toddlers. Avocados are rich in the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin C and E while bananas are filled with magnesium and potassium. This puree is so thick and rich, I decided to get all fancy [...]

Spiced Lentil Puree

Some people dread cooking beans because they think there are too many steps in the preparation. That’s where lentils come in handy. When mixed with a grain they become a complete protein and lentils are packed with iron, important for the creation of white blood cells and antibodies. The vitamin C from the tomatoes aid [...]

This recipe is a perfect mix of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables.

Coconut Smoothie for Baby

Coconut-Smoothie-Baby-Food

We’ve been going to a small, but fantastic, farmer’s market near our house on Saturdays in order to satisfy my husband’s recent obsession with tropical fruit. One of the vendors there sells pineapples, papayas, mangos and bananas that taste so fresh, you’d think you were on a tropical island. By mid-week, if I’ve cut up [...]

Chicken with Carrots and Corn

Babies need more protein than adults because they’re growing so fast. This is especially true in the first few years of your baby’s life. Most of the time, I cook with organic skinless, boneless chicken breasts, but the thigh is higher in fat than the breast, which is a good thing for babies and it [...]
