National Ice Cream Month is here and that means it’s finally time to cool off all summer with treats and sweets straight from the freezer aisle. Ice cream novelties (like the ice pops, sandwiches and cones) have been around since the 1920’s and while they may seem like “kiddie treats,” adults consume more than half of all novelties sold! We’ve come up with a few lists of some of our favorite cold treats to cool down with and beat the summer heat.
Now that Labor Day weekend has come and gone, it’s time to embrace the school season as fall will be here before we know it. Besides breakfasts and after school snacks, another important meal you can’t forget about is lunch. Light up your kids’ faces by taking their lunchbox to the next level with these simple and fun recipes!
School days can be exhausting, and weeknights can be even busier between after school extra curriculars, music lessons, sports and other activities. Depending on what time your child eats lunch at school, it can be a really long span until dinner’s ready. A stocked fridge and freezer for after school snacks can help you stave off hunger and avoid the evening meltdown from your kiddos.
It’s August, which means it’s Back to School time! Between shopping for school supplies and new clothes, it’s also important to start planning out your meals for when school starts, especially breakfasts. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day. Countless studies show that eating breakfast can help kids stay alert and perform better in school.
Kids are back in school which means weeknight routines are in full force. Children are extremely busy Monday-Fridays and getting the entire family together for dinner may seem impossible, but it’s actually pretty simple! Did you know that more than half (54%) of respondents in a recent survey stated that most of their dinners take place at the dining table*? It’s not the family dinner that’s most important; it’s the quality time together!
