Healthy Chicken Fingers

EAT, family meals, snacks By January 1, 2010 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Kids adore chicken fingers and nuggets, but the deep-fried versions are terribly unhealthy.  The pre-made options that you grab in the grocery store may be easy, but the expense and lack of nutrition in most brands makes this quick dinner a poor choice.  Why not make a huge, heart-healthy batch yourself and freeze half, ensuring that you always have a quick and healthy option available?

Yogurt, Granola and Fruit Parfait

EAT, family meals, snacks By September 28, 2009 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

This one is really simple (so simple the kids can do it) and potentially super healthy. In a bowl or glass, layer or mix healthy yogurt, granola and fruit. There are organic varieties of all three available. This is a great recipe for breakfast or a snack for kids and adults alike.

Healthy Snacks

EAT, snacks By September 14, 2009 Tags: , , 4 Comments

We’ve been on a rampage lately.  Not to get the kids to pick up their socks, put the toilet seat down, or call if they’ll be out past ten (just kidding).  We’ve resolved to find some healthy snacks.  We thought it wouldn’t be a problem.  Whoops.  I will never forget my first outing to a ‘special event’ when Thomas the Train was in Squamish, and I took my 1 year old to see him.  I actually remembered diapers that day, but forgot the snacks.  I thought I’d be fine to purchase something.  After combing the grounds, I found cotton candy, chips, and mini doughnuts.

Vitala

EAT, snacks By July 7, 2009 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

resources(2) Yum. What’s the next best thing to Mother’s milk? Check out Vitala. Vitala Milk is BC’s only all-natural milk and it gives you the additional health benefits of DHA Omega-3 and Conjugated Linolic Acid. The special Abbotsford Vitala cows are fed with enriched grain, and treated with kid gloves. Or plastic ones, anyway. (Are you laughing?) The great thing is that this milk is especially perfect for children who are transitioning from breast milk or formula.

Edamame Snack

EAT, snacks By March 9, 2009 Tags: , , 1 Comment

Costco offers a box of twelve packs of frozen edamame (soybeans).  We throw ours in a frying pan without oil or butter.  Simply heat through and spice with salt, pepper, or any herbs and spices your kids desire.  Squeezing the beans out is fun for the kids, and it may just buy you enough time to make dinner!

French Toast Fingers

EAT, snacks By January 27, 2009 Tags: , , , No Comments

French Toast for Kids.  Try this one with cinnamon raisin bread for a fun twist to the traditional.  Changing things is a great way for kids to ‘rediscover’ foods that they may not have liked the first time.
