Budget-Friendly Recipes Benefit Your Family Health

November 5, 2009

Healthy Kids Challenge works hard every day to develop win-win partnerships from which kids and families can benefit. I want to recognize Del Monte today as one of our Partners In Health.

We love kid-friendly recipes, so when I found out Del Monte offers easy, affordable, and kid-friendly recipes on their website, I had to share it with you.

Click on the tab “Meals Under $10” for ones like the one below. What a great way to add some veggies and it still tastes great!

And check out Del Monte’s awesome downloadable booklet. It has 10 recipes all for under $10. Right now it’s the Holiday Edition, and it will change each season, so go back after the holidays!
