I’m still trying out better versions of my kids favorite foods. I don’t want to take everything away from them, I mean they’re still kids and they want to enjoy their food, too!
I remember as a child not having to worry about calories, GMOs, and other no-no things in my food. I ate without thinking. Ignorance really is bliss.
So, because I still want my kids to be kids I do all the “worrying” for them. They’re starting to make better decisions when it comes to food. Even my 6 year old “gets it” sometimes.
If you are like me, then you want the best for your kids without the hassle.
Here’s to more favorites with a healthier twist!
Hope your kids enjoy these!

3. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
I greedily ate my share of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches growing up! I enjoyed them so much sometimes I had them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! HOWEVER, none of my kids like peanut butter, so substituting with other nut butters, like sunflower butter, is also possible with these recipes.
