A guide to kids and nutrition

Children who are allergic to cow's milk should also avoid margarine. That's just one of the salient items in "The Yale Guide to Children's Nutrition," edited by Dr. William V. Tamborlane, an expert in children's metabolism (Yale University Press, 1997, $40 cloth, $18 paper). The book covers topics from infancy to adolescence, including feeding sick kids, teen skin problems, and food allergies. There are also kid-pleasing recipes designed to suit the whole family.

Bagels without holes

Face it, that gap in the center of a bagel is a perfect escape route for cream cheese. So Larry Baras, a Boston-based financial planner, has developed the UnHoley Bagel, structured sort of like a cream puff, with cream cheese inside instead of custard. A box of 12 frozen cream-cheese-filled UnHoley Bagels in 3 flavors (poppy seed, plain and sesame) costs $4.99 at BJ's Wholesale shopping clubs.

Into the soup

Here's a "souper" contest: Progresso and Woman's Day magazine are offering $10,000 to the person who submits the best original homemade soup recipe. Hearty flavors are the key. For rules, check out the March 4 issue of Woman's Day, or send a stamped self-addressed envelope to "The Taste of Homemade Soup" Recipe Contest, 7008 Highway Seven, Minneapolis, Minn. Entries must be postmarked by April 18.

Juicy news

Everybody's talking about: navel oranges -- how they're really good and really cheap right now. They're great for fruit compotes (top orange slices with pureed frozen strawberries or raspberries, add a light sprinkling of brown sugar or balsamic vinegar), or for eating out of hand, especially since they don't have any pesky seeds.
