Braille Cookbook Conforms to USDA Dietary Guidelines

Do you have a relative or friend who is blind and likes to cook? If so, "Cooking for the Health of It," the first cookbook to conform to the USDA Dietary Guidelines, is now available in Braille. The author is Gail L. Becker, RD, nutritionist and author.

There is a definite need for contemporary creative Braille cookbooks according to Judith M. Dixon, head of consumer services for the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, Library of Congress. Although there are numerous Braille cookbooks available through the National Library Service, very few are available for purchase and those are very expensive.

The Braille addition of "Cooking for the Health of It" offers affordability. Individuals may order the Braille cookbook for $19.68 because of a subsidy by National Braille Associates, Inc., the producer of the Braille edition. Agencies and companies may order the cookbook for $114.80.

Your blind relative or friend can join millions of health and diet-conscious Americans in the kitchen. "Cooking for the Health of It" contains more than 200 recipes that conform to the USDA Dietary Guidelines for reducing sugar, sodium and fat.
