 Everyone wants easy meals, nutritious meals, delicious home-cooked meals. But, let’s admit it…faced with the demands of a busy day, there are times when cooking isn’t in the cards for your child care! It’s hard to resist the convenience of packaged, processed convenience foods. Come & learn ways to prepare healthy meals for young children using a combination of fresh ingredients & convenience products. The premise is to start with a good quality, healthy, prepared or semi-prepared convenience product, then add some healthy ingredients of your own. The result is a 1-of-a-kind “home cooked meal” in much less time. Good nutrition doesn’t have to require a lot of work! Finally, evaluate the advantages/disadvantages of using speed scratch methods & discover new ways for using those convenience products!
