When we hit the hot summer months, it can be very easy to make our kids something that is not as healthy as we think. We want to teach our kids the importance of a healthy diet so that they can grow into healthy adults. I have been embedding this into my girls for quite some time and figured I would have to do some research to make things that are not only appealing to their eyes, but healthy for their bodies. It helps if we as parents practice healthy eating habits in front of them too. Definitely can be challenging at times, wouldn’t you agree?
On my quest for summer recipes, I found some that I think could catch on in my household and thought I would share them with you. It is from a site called; Diets in Review. The author compiled a list of 10 recipes, but I will just share the 5 that I know my girls will most likely desire to consume during the summer. What can I say, they love fruit, haha!
- Frozen Fruit Bars
- Sugar Free Gummy Worms
- Italian Cream Soda
- Summer Fruit Salad
- Watermelon Honeydew Kabobs
The other half of the recipes listed in the post are: Frozen Banana, Cottage Cheese Dip for Vegetables, Homemade Granola, Turkey and Cream Cheese, and Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal. Yum! These sound fantastic. To view the ingredients and directions how to make these recipes, visit Healthy Summer Recipes.
Get your kids involved in preparation of these recipes too. I have learned that if you let them participate in creating, they will most likely eat it as they become proud of their culinary masterpieces. Gotta love that!
Have any healthy baking recipe ideas? You can get Free printable coupons for Baking Items. Feel free to share any ideas you may have. I just love getting new healthy recipes to try with my girls, especially since they tend to be picky eaters.
