We all want our little ones to be healthy, but sometimes it's hard to distract them from junk food and convince them to gobble up the stuff that's good for them.
Luckily, we've got some great ideas for on-the-go snacks that moms and kids will both love!
I always make delicious, low-fat, healthy casseroles for my family because they love them AND because they last for two days - so sometimes I only have to cook three times a week!
1 bag whole wheat penne pasta
1 glass jar organic marinara sauce
1 bag organic frozen mixed veggies (or any veggies, just make sure they are mostly green)
1 bag low fat/skim mozzarella shredded cheese

Tammy's daughters gobble this up. It's the perfect comforting and satisfying food. Winter time to us always means casseroles for dinner.

But the trick is to make snacks healthy as well as appetizing. This means not too much fat and not too much salt or sugar! Fortunately, we've got you covered.
Here are four fancy and fresh snack ideas for Super Bowl Sunday:
I love fresh beets, and I finally figured out a sure-thing recipe that blows my friends away.
They are sweet, just like candy, and I can serve this dish with any meal.
5-10 multi colored fresh beets (canned will NOT work)
1/2 cup of olive oil and balsamic vinegar (mixed)
salt and pepper
Cut the stems off the bulbs. Peel and slice the bulbs in halves or quarters, depending on the size of your beets.
