Depending on the weather, you may have some children at home during the daytime this week. If they are looking for snacks, the University of Georgia Extension recommends choosing snacks from all the food groups in MyPlate (grains, dairy, protein, vegetable and fruit).
A few other tips include:
Take advantage of the family time together and show your children how to cook or prepare some of your family’s favorite snacks or recipes. Let them help out in the kitchen or start working on a family cookbook, online recipe-themed family blog or social media page. It couldn’t hurt to go ahead and take a look at your calendar and plan out meals for the rest of the month.
