Our friend Kris over at Deconstructing Wellness is back with healthy, fun and delicious meals to make with your kids. Enjoy! And be sure to check out her blog for other healthy recipes and wellness tips.
Quarantine living has become our “new normal” and with so much more time at home, I have found two big takeaways. One, a renewed focus on the power of food to support our overall heath & wellbeing. Two, the need to find activities to enjoy with our kids, given all the time we have together.
In our house, building healthy habits starts with experimenting in the kitchen, letting ourselves create a mess and have fun with simple recipes. My hope is that the recipes below help you explore and build healthy habits as a family, while you gain an excitement to explore the kitchen together.
Energy Bites: These are hands-down a crowd favorite! Simple to make and packed with nutritious ingredients. Follow our lead and make a double batch, because these tasty bites will disappear fast.
Yogurt Parfaits: Parfaits are possibly the easiest & most flexible snack young kids can make on their own. They work great as a quick breakfast, mid-afternoon snack or even a side with lunch. Best part - no prep required and kids can fly solo to gather and create their parfait.
Fruit Pizza: Let kids’ creativity run free with this recipe. The fun is in the design of the toppings. My girls are always so proud to show off their creations. I’d love if you share pictures to show off what your little one puts together!
