Your child will feel less deprived and fit in with his pizza eating peers a bit better with a pita pizza in hand, don't you think?

Ask any leprechaun out there and they will tell you that they eat lots of green food items. While we only seem to look at green foods during St. Patrick's Day time, I look for new ways of giving my kids green foods year round (because they are good for them, right?).

I refuse to order fried chicken that arrives in a box, at room temperature and with no other fresh ingredients for my daughter's lunch. Instead, I make my own baked chicken strips one night every few weeks. I hope your family enjoys them as much as she does.

What kinds of thoughts come to mind when I say, ramen noodle soup? Late-night college snack? In-case-of-emergency shelf stable food? How about a staple in many school cafeterias? We created a healthy ramen noodle soup recipe kids will love.

When parents ask me what I think makes a fun lunch; I tell them that kids love familiar foods divided into compartments, rainbows of color and variety. 2013-01-14-deliboxpull.jpg
