Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

5 Healthy Dishes Kids Will Love: Fall 2015


  1. Pancake Shapes. Using the recipe for Banana-Berry Pancakes, pour batter into metal cookie cutters on a griddle to create fun pancakes the kids will love. Don’t forget to make Sweet Potato Pancakes on Halloween for a special surprise.
  2. Macaroni Dinners. Every kid loves macaroni noodles, so make something kid- and parent-approved! Recipes: Quick Ground Beef Skillet, Macaroni Chickpea Soup, Carrots w/Tomatoes & Macaroni.
  3. Taco Bar. Enlist your kids (if age appropriate) to select and prepare different taco toppings. A taco bar will be a huge hit since everyone can make their own. Serve Spanish Cauliflower or Mexican Rice Pilaf on the side.
  4. Apples. Eat the fall harvest. Apples are fresh and crisp this time of year. For a healthy snack offer Crunchy Apple Treasures, Quick & Easy Microwave Apples, or Bookworm Apple Bark.
  5. Stuffed Lunch. Break away from the boring sandwich in the lunch box. Surprise your kids with pita pockets. Buy whole-wheat pita bread and make Veggie Stuffed Pitas, Rainbow Veggie Pocket, or West Coast Pita Treat for a tasty lunch.
