Families are so busy between work, school, after school sports, play dates, homework, and everything else in between. Your children are your lives. You want to give them the very best you can, but sometimes when it comes to our children’s nutrition, we feel that we have no control. One day they love apples, the next day they hate them with a deep passion.
What is a parent to do? We have you covered! Kids who actually enjoy healthy foods may be less likely to join the growing number of their peers who face weight problems. “The rate of childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents over the past 30 years, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, so that as of 2010, more than a third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese. It’s largely up to parents to influence their kids’ food preferences and choices so they don’t become an obesity statistic, and these recipes can help.” (center of disease control and prevention). We have everything from main dishes to desserts. Share in the comments below what your favorite HEALTHY meal is, thats kids would love!
