Kick off the new school year with time saving, healthy, family meal ideas, and let Produce for Kids help!
I think we all need new recipe ideas from time to time. The start of another active school year is the perfect time to learn new time saving tricks, tips and recipes. I know I get in a rut and make a lot of the same things, just tweaked a bit.
Today’s post is brought to you in partnership with Produce for Kids, all opinions are my own.
I have shared quite a bit about Produce for Kids in the past. Healthy recipes like no-bake granola balls, hidden veggie meatballs and peach pie smoothies are just a few of their recipes. In addition to the resources on their website, you can also find their recipes on handy displays in your local Meijer grocery stores!
Recently, I shared my Pineapple Mango Chicken Stir Fry with Produce for Kids, and they included the recipe in their new cookbook, Produce for Kids: Healthy Family Classics. How exciting is that?! You can find my recipe on page 71 of the cookbook, which you can find on Amazon.
Now that school is back in full swing, it’s time to dust off our family favorite recipes to maximize our time in the kitchen so we can get back out and enjoy life. I do not think you need to spend hours in the kitchen just to feed your family. I use websites like Produce for Kids as a resource.
And right now, you can help yourself to time saving new recipes, all while helping others in the process!
