RECIPE TRADING CARDS FEATURING SUPERBOWL MVP TROY AIKMAN AND OTHER SPORTS SUPERSTARS PROMOTES GOOD NUTRITION FOR KIDS

 HOUSTON, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- If you can't imagine trading Dallas Cowboy Troy Aikman's "Quarterback Crunch Bars" for Boston Red Sox Roger Clemen's "Pitcher Perfect Rice Pudding," then you haven't seen the USA Rice Council's recipe trading cards!
 This month seven sports celebrities, all chosen for their good diet and exercise habits, will be immortalized on recipe trading cards designed for "rookie" chefs. The goal: to help a nation of increasingly overweight kids get off to a heart-healthy start by eating properly and exercising regularly.
 "When it comes to good nutrition, today's athletes -- with rare exception -- make excellent role models," says the White Sox second baseman Steve Sax, one of the athletes featured in the cards.
 Says Sax, father of two, "Sometimes it's tough to get kids to eat right, and I'm speaking from experience. But the great thing about these trading cards is they introduce and reinforce good food habits in a fun and motivating way."
 Other athletes featured: Boston Red Sox Roger Clemens, Houston Oiler Warren Moon, Dallas Cowboy Troy Aikman, tennis great Zina Garrison, Olympic swimmer Summer Sanders, and Olympic bobsledder Brian Shimer.
 The ten-card pack, sporting photos on the front and sports-themed recipes on the back, also includes athletes' career achievements and fun food quotes. Two additional cards are devoted to nutrition tips for kids and the new Food Guide Pyramid. Sets sell for $1.95 each and all proceeds will be divided equally among the athletes' favorite charities. Expecting to score big hits with kids and adults alike, the Council hopes to raise $50,000 for charity.
 To order the Council's "All Stars In The Kitchen" recipe trading cards, send a check in the amount of $1.95 for each set, payable to:
