PLANO, Texas, Nov. 19 Mott's is getting sneaky this holiday season by teaming up with The Sneaky Chef, Missy Chase Lapine, to sneak Mott's into classic holiday meals. As many Americans tend to skimp on fruits and vegetables during this time of year, Mott's and The Sneaky Chef have responded with a list of holiday recipes that provide fruitful and delicious meals for both kids and adults to enjoy.
"Between picky appetites and not-so-healthy traditional holiday dishes, Mott's understands that many moms are looking for nutritious options this time of year," said Allison Methvin, brand director for Mott's. "Mott's apple sauce can be used in so many recipes to add delicious flavor to some of your favorite treats. And Missy is the perfect person to help us sneak Mott's into holiday fare."
The Sneaky Chef is the brainchild of Missy Chase Lapine, whose New York Times bestseller, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals (Running Press, April 2007) inspired a new brand in the healthy eating and healthy lifestyle category. Missy has promoted her message on such programs as "The Today Show," "Fox & Friends" and Martha Stewart Radio, as well as various national magazines and websites, including Parenting, SELF, First, Family Fun and Scholastic Magazine.
Great food is the cornerstone of family time during the holidays, and to keep the nutritional goodness in each meal, Mott's and The Sneaky Chef created the following holiday recipes to include Mott's apple sauce and apple juice:
