Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

5 Healthy Dishes Kids Will Love: Summer 2015


  1. Penne Pasta Pomodoro. Kids love pasta and you will love the simplicity of this dish. It’s easy to make and is packed full of vitamin C and fiber. Recipe: Penne Pasta Pomodoro
  2. Parfaits. A great way to add more fruits to your kid’s diet. Healthy parfaits are any combination of yogurt, fruit, nuts and cereal layered in a cup. Let your kids be adventurous and make their own or try these great recipes: Purple Party Parfait or Tropical Sunrise Parfait.
  3. Ranch Style Spuds. Add some spice to potato night by infusing them with a little bit of ranch flavor…who can resist! Recipe: Ranch Style Spuds
  4. Dips. Kids like to dip. Forget offering vegetables with a side of ranch dressing. Take a stab at something new and healthier such as Peanut Hummus & Vegetables or Carrot Dip.
  5. Corn on the Cob. Create a new family summer favorite: Corn on the Cob w/ Chili Lime Butter. Let the kids help mix the butter and listen to praises for making something new everyone likes!
