Co-Authors Lynn Fredericks and Mercedes Sanchez are the team behind Get Your Family Eating Right and the successful nutrition education programs and curricula of FamilyCook Productions. They share the same values around home cooked meals, multicultural recipes, one-pot recipe ‘concepts’ and inviting children into one’s kitchen.
Lynn and Mercedes' collaboration began 14 years ago when Mercedes interned with FamilyCook. A native of Spain, her traditional approach to family meals and natural flair to make them festive and fun meshed perfectly with Lynn’s philosophy of making each meal a festive, memorable occasion – but in the most simple way possible. Together they have created innovative programs that have reached over 100,000 families across the US and soon in countries across the globe. Meticulous researchers as well as program developers, they have routinely evaluated their work to build the evidence base for their philosophy.
Practicing what they preach, although Mercedes now resides with her husband and children in France, Lynn and Mercedes manage to continue their collaboration and enjoy even more food adventures spanning two continents.
