Sure, you could just have ice cream for dessert... but where is the fun in that? Instead, have your kids help assemble these colorful, fruity, rainbow yogurt trifle cups for a more nutrient-packed, delicious dessert the whole family can enjoy!
For many families, Friday night is #PizzaNight. Tonight, try topping the pizza with a variety of colorful veggies like peppers, onions, mushrooms or tomatoes and toss together some #DarkLeafyGreens like baby kale or spinach with a citrus-based dressing for a delicious side-salad!
Struggling to get your kids to eat their #darkleafygreens? Saute blanched greens with olive oil, onion and garlic to add flavor. Add chopped nuts for additional heart-healthy fats. Sprinkle lemon zest over the sautéed greens to brighten the flavor!
