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.
