Summer is a great time for family fun, friends getting together, parents working, lots of activities and so much more. However, we still want to make sure that our children aren’t just heading right for the junk foods, that they are eating healthy foods. So they are able to have great energy, stay hydrated, and have a wonderful summer. It’s not just the children that need to eat healthy in the summer, adults need to as well.
In order to help your children make healthier choices it’s a wonderful idea to have healthy choices available to make it easier for the family to eat better. If your going to be on the go all week or you have to work. It’s a great idea to have a Tuna Salad, Pasta Salad, Subs, cut up veggie tray, and a large Bowl of fresh fruits in your fridge for the family. Let’s face it most children will go for the already made foods to make it quick and easy and they can get back to having fun.
You will know your family is eating well, they aren’t heating up the house cooking every meal. If it’s to hot out for a day you can just eat a cold salad or another dish that is already made up. There are so many dishes that you can make up ahead of time and just leave in the fridge for the family. It will not only make it easy on the family but easy on you as well as it can be eaten for a couple of days. So you can relax and spend less time in the kitchen. You can make Tuna Salad for Sandwiches, Chicken Salad For Sandwiches, Waldorf Salad, Pasta Salads, Potato Salad, Ice Berg Lettuce Salads, Wrap Sandwiches, or many other great dishes. Your family will just love that you thought about them enough to plan ahead for them to have a variety of healthy dishes to eat. They will also make great lunches for you or for your spouse so that you can be ready for a busy day. If your heading out to the Zoo, Museums, amusement parks it will also save you money on having to purchase a meal or hit a fast food restaurant with the family.
