If your kids are anything like mine, they come home from school famished. Ravenous. The default is to go for the easy stuff – packaged crap that is high in sugar and tastes delicious. Well, with the help of the Canadian Sport Institute and our Canmore Nordic Ski Club, (we had a nutritionist speak to us about healthy food choices for student athletes), I’ve whittled down an excellent list into some options I believe are easy for my kids to help themselves to, are better for them and also taste delicious. My hope is that this eliminates the question that invariably follows the dumping of their knapsack and plodding over to wherever I happen to be when they come home which is, “What should I have to eat?”
“Feast your eyes on the fridge door!” I shall reply in a jolly tone. “And choose whatever tickles your taste buds!” The rest, is up to them.
Print off a copy, slap it on your fridge and let me know if your day becomes “What should I have to eat” free!
