Helping Kids Appreciate A Healthy Meal

Most may remember when classroom bulletin boards showed the food pyramid. The pyramid – there was only one. One size fit all. Everyone needed to follow the same nutritional guidelines. Everyone was supposed to merely look at the pyramid to figure out how many servings were needed each day.

Nearly all would agree that it is a excellent thing that obsolete food pyramid has nearly all but been forgotten! It may have taken a while, but the thought that not all people need the same food intake finally caught on. Nor are children expected to follow the same nutritional guidelines as the adults.

If you’re hoping we’ll show you the “kid’s guidelines” there unfortunately isn’t a set guideline. The amount of food from each food group that each person should eat to maintain a healthy lifestyle is dependent on their age, sex and physical activity level. One size doesn’t fit all. You can go to mypyramid.gov to type in some variables to get an thought of how much from each food category to eat each day.

Keep in mind balance is the name of the game. Make sure your kids are eating fruits and vegetables, dairy, meats and beans and grains each day. Then top it off with water, fresh air and exercise. To help you get started, below you will find a couple of healthy meals for kids.

This turkey avocado sandwich wrap uses kid-friendly ingredients for a healthful lunch or snack.


• Whole wheat tortillas
• 1 avocado mashed
• Sliced deli turkey
• Shredded carrots
• Shredded lettuce
• Shredded Monterey jack cheese


Assemble wraps in the following order: Spread mashed avocado on tortilla; Sprinkle shredded carrots and lettuce on avocado; Lay on slices of deli turkey; Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Additionally, you won’t get any looks of disappointment if you inform the kids you’re making chicken nuggets for dinner. This kid favorite is tasty in the low-stout, oven-baked version. For simple clean-up and maximum crispiness, lay a sheet of foil on a cookie sheet; and, then place a wire rack on top of the foil.


• skinless, boneless chicken breasts cut in 1-2 inch squares
• non-stout or low-stout buttermilk
• flour for dredging
• finely chopped corn flakes for dredging
• salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375. Prepare three large bowls for dredging chicken – 1 with flour seasoned with salt and pepper, 1 with buttermilk, and 1 with crushed corn flakes. Prepare baking pan by laying a sheet of foil over a cookie sheet; and then place a wire rack on top of the foil. Season chicken with salt and cut into 1-2 inch pieces.

Drag chicken pieces in flour. Shake off excess flour and coat with buttermilk. Next, generously coat chicken with corn flakes, and place on rack of your baking pan. Bake nuggets for 15 minutes. These keep well for the next day’s lunch box so make plenty!

The next time you reach into the pantry or freezer to grab something quick to prepare for dinner, take a excellent scrutinizing look at the ingredients. The thought is not to serve food that is adequate but instead food that is healthy. Keep in mind that not all of your kids may require the same parts of food.
