Raising kids up to make good food choices is hard. There are so many easy options out there and the market is flooded with easy answers and quick fixes. What’s more- keeping your kids active is a challenge in and of itself. Parents and caregivers are flooded with information and might n know what the best options are. Too many choices, not enough time/money.

Yes, you can hit on all three of those things in one meal.

Heck, I could take a lesson from what these kids learn.
Meijer is helping to make meal planning easier with Produce for Kids healthy recipes. The annual Produce for Kids campaign is taking place at all Meijer stores now through June 27 to raise funds for Jump with Jill.
