Fun Family Dinner: Veggie Kabobs

Some kids are resistant to eating vegetables, while others are open to trying just about everything. We have found allowing kids to assist in the preparation of the meal usually makes them more excited to try new things. It also helps educate them on nutrition and healthy choices. These marinated summer vegetable kabobs are fun for the whole family to prepare and kids love to get their hands dirty and create their own kabob combinations.

Easy Weekday Breakfast

It’s seven o’clock on Monday morning. The buses are picking up kids for school and the cars are leaving the driveways.

There might be an alarm going off that is supposed to remind you to leave on time. There might be a dog following at your heels until the second you close the door and head to work.
