Healthy Families Start with Healthy Dinners
Keeping my family healthy is always at the top of my priority list. It's not always easy, especially in the dinner department. And with picky eaters, it's even more difficult.
But I've found that if I give my kids the chance to help with dinner, they are more likely to eat what is on the menu. Here's how you can do it in your own home. Let them pick the veggies for quesadillas, omlettes, salads, burritos, pasta, or tacos. Make sure to keep a varitey of fresh veggies on hand, so that it's easy to grab when the urge strikes. I like green, red, and yellow bell peppers plus shredded carrots for a quick stir fry. Add chicken and rice and you've got a complete meal.
We top it all off with a post dinner walk. It helps my little ones get out any last minute wiggles, and to tell you the truth the fresh air really helps me clear my mind.
Moms, what are your quick tips for keeping your family healthy and happy?
