Fun meal ideas for kids!
Cooking meals at home can be fun again. I don’t know about you but, it’s been challenging with the kids being home for remote learning. What do you do? How can you keep your kiddos entertained and make it a teachable moment within a budget? Here are a few creative and fun meals you can do with your kids while they are home for the day without breaking the bank:
Pancake or Waffle Buffet:
Personal Pan Pizza Buffet:
- It’s healthier to make popcorn from scratch. Take a look at the ingredients on the box? Take a closer look and health risk from Science Daily .
- It’s cheaper – let’s compare! A 45oz jar of a name brand popcorn is $4.98, while the same brand of 17.41oz of microwave popcorn cost $3.68. With the average serving size of 2oz (un-popped), you’re getting 14 additional serving for $1.30.
- It doesn’t take much time to make it from scratch! In about 5 minutes you can make some yummy popcorn. However, if you just don’t have time to stand at the stove or your kids are old enough to operate the microwave, you can make a healthy version by using Hotpop Microwave Popcorn Popper.
There are tons of great flavors to mix it up! The Foodnetwork.com has 50 flavored popcorn recipes to try. Have fun!
