This Tuesday let’s get our kids back into the kitchen! Healthy eating habits start at home so it is important mom and dad make good ones too. Being a role model for your child with a healthy lifestyle makes choices easier when outside of the home. Eating together, cooking together, and being active together helps kids keep the structure they need. We know kids are snacking all the time so this week let’s prep a snack together in order to have a healthy on the go option vs. a cruddy snack food that comes from a box! Give it a try! This is a great way to get some fruits and veggies in without them knowing! Kid and adult friendly!
