This week we are featuring 5 healthy lunches for kid chefs and their parents to make together. The best part: they aren’t all sandwiches! Many of them are rolls, or "sandwich cousins" as we like to call them. We are also super excited for spring to finally arrive so we went for maximum color in these lunches. (And as you might know, "eating the rainbow" is a great way to make sure your kiddos get lots of different types of nutrients.) Yum!
With Father’s Day around the corner and temperatures soaring into the 90s in NYC, we thought it would be perfect timing to make fruit ice pops, for your pops! If your dad loves food, these 4 ingredient ice pops will be an excellent way to say “thanks Dad, stay cool.” You can make them now to prepare for Father's Day or make them the morning of, but remember fruit ice pops need to freeze for several hours. And if mango isn’t your dad’s thing, you can easily swap in a different fruit. Happy Father's Day!
Is it a fruit? Is it a vegetable? The world may never know, but we sure know that they taste delicious. Tomatoes are an excellent source of nutrients, including vitamins A and C, calcium, and potassium. There are over 7,500 varieties and they come in colors from all across the rainbow. Tomatoes are seen in many different cuisines from all around the world, especially in Italian food like sauces for pasta and pizza. There are so many ways to them, but have you ever thought of making stuffed tomatoes?
Valentine's Day is one of the sweetest days of the year, and what better way to share your love than through food! Satisfy your sweet tooth and your taste buds with this Valentine's DIY: Sweet Strawberries. What's not to love about chocolate covered strawberries? Tastes like candy, but with half the guilt and enjoyable for loved ones of all ages.
Kid chefs will love using fruit as their canvas as they paint with chocolate and yogurt and decorate with sprinkles. And they will love the chance to make a sweet treat to show their love for their fam and friends! They're so fun to make, they might just make this recipe all year round!
With so much decorating, shopping, and wrapping, we sometimes forget to stop and share the seasonal spirit with our little ones through food. It can be both easy and enjoyable to make Christmas cooking with kids a part of your December plans with our Strawberry Santa Pops!
