Kids can create vegetable-filled quesadillas, pizzas and wraps simply and safely with only a handful of fresh ingredients. For snacks, homemade frozen ice pops and yogurt parfaits are delicious, healthy and easy to make.
Eggs-in-the-hole is a fun and delicious breakfast dish that kids can help you make. Let them crack the eggs or cut holes into slices of bread with cookie cutters before grilling it on the stovetop. With protein and whole grains, this breakfast is a balanced and healthy way to start the day. Kids can completely make their own breakfast parfait by layering yogurt with granola, fresh fruit and a light squeeze of honey.
For lunch, make versatile wraps filled with your choice of healthy ingredients. Busy kids can pile up slices of turkey, cucumber, tomatoes and cheese before rolling this simple and tasty meal up to take and eat on the go. Like wraps, quesadillas and pita pizzas allow kids to pile on the ingredients they like and can be warmed up in a conventional toaster oven. Let them chop up fresh vegetable toppings, grate cheese and spread the sauce themselves.
Frozen ice pops are easy to make and will satisfy your kid's sweet tooth. Bring orange juice and honey to a simmer on the stove before combining the mixture with Greek yogurt, orange zest and vanilla extract. Let kids pour the mixture into ice pop molds, and pop them into the freezer for a few hours.
