Most breakfasts and lunches consist of recipes that are either fast or can be prepared ahead of a busy day or week. The dinners that were chosen take minimal preparation time, while also being flexible to ingredients and individual kid preferences. We hope that you enjoy this cookbook as much as we enjoy teaching about nutritious foods and a healthy lifestyle at Kids in Nutrition!
