Easter is such a fun holiday for my kids. My four & two year olds love reading books about Easter, what the holiday is about, and of course, the Easter Bunny. Growing up, I remember the joy and excitement when opening my Easter basket. There was always a bag of jellybeans, a chocolate Easter Bunny, and other fun things like coloring books, crayons, or a fun bow for my hair. Then we would go to the backyard and hunt for Easter eggs. Some were eggshells that we dyed with fun colors and others were plastic eggs to open with usually more candy.

Here are my top 10 family-tested, dietitian-approved recipes.
This past weekend, the Produce for Kids team had the pleasure of attending Southeast Produce Council’s Southern Exposure. While there, we hosted a reception for our grocery and produce partners where we announced our new partnership with Feeding America and recapped our 2014 results. Southern Exposure brings together hundreds of fresh produce companies, so naturally, we have new family-friendly products to share.
Knowing what fresh produce items are in season when you head to the grocery store can not only save you money, but also means that you’ll be enjoying fruits and veggies at their peak! Read on to see what’s in season for March and get some delicious recipes to incorporate these items into mealtime.
We are very excited to share this guest blog post from our friends at The Kids Cook Monday: Having your children help you prepare family meals is one of the most effective ways to encourage them to try new foods and improve their overall diet quality, both now and later in life. But if you’re used to quickly whipping together a meal amidst your family’s usual weeknight chaos, the thought of corralling the kids into the kitchen can feel overwhelming.
It’s no secret that spinach is one of the most popular superfoods out there. Bagged fresh spinach has become regularly available in grocery stores, and frequently on sale too. I find I can get through about 2 bags of spinach a week if I’m diligent with adding it to my family’s diet daily, and in several different ways so they don’t get bored (or catch on!).
