Sweet Potatoes Update (NAPS)--For 200 years and more, a one-dish meal of seasoned beef and mashed potatoes has been known as cottage pie. Like any classic, it's ready for an update--and a sweet-potato topper does the job. Think about breaking through a golden crust into sweet-potato creaminess, and then into a succulent layer of seasoned beef. Comfort foods with such qualities are often problematical on the nutri- tion front. But this clever twist on a popular pie is not just hearty and delicious, it's downright wholesome. Sweet potatoes provide many nutrients, including i~ber, beta~arotene, vi~n C, potassium and magne- sium. And for those on dia- betic diets, there's good news: A Comfy Classic Cottage Pie with a "Sweet" Twist. 114 teaspoons fresh thyme or teaspoon dried thyme or herbes de Provence, divided teaspoon salt, divided teaspoon ground black pepper, divided 2 tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon milk Preheat oven to 350F.

Kate Baldwin, Board Secretary Kids Need "Growing" Food For Bodies, Brains And Behavior (NAPS)---Registered dietit- ian Tara DelloIacono-Thies says kids' bodies aren't the only things that need good food for healthy growth. Their brains are hungry for nutritious foods too.
