What's an easy, healthy lunchbox menu for kids?

The Healthified Mom

Peanut butter and jelly on whole grain bread, apple slices, and pretzel sticks. The perfect balance of nutrition and a great salty/sweet combination.

What's your go-to cooking shortcut?

The Healthified Mom

For recipes that call for shredded chicken, I always purchase a rotisserie chicken, shred it, and then bag it in 2-cup portions. Most recipes call for 2 cups of shredded chicken so it works out great!

What's a great spring or summer recipe that uses corn?

The Healthified Mom

Honestly.. corn on the cob is pretty amazing with nothing on it. But if you want to jazz it up a bit, toss on some parmesan cheese before serving. And because parmesan has a salty flavor, there's no need to add extra salt!

For my son’s 8th birthday, I got totally ambitious and decided to make cake pops for the first time. Since he loves football, I figured why not. I made a football field to hold the Football Cake Pops using a rectangular basket, a foam base, green “grass,” and a goal post made from lollipop sticks. My Football Cake Pops have a rich chocolate cake center and a yummy peanut butter coating. Seriously.. what’s better than chocolate and peanut butter? Nothing! http://www.healthifiedmom.com/243/recipe-football-cake-pops/
