Fun Food to Keep the Kids Full During Break

Keep the kids' engines running during their holiday breaks from school.

By Colleen Walsh Fong

Whether our rosy cheeks come from frosty air or a blood pressure surge after viewing the mounting charges on your credit account we can all feel the need for a little pick me up this time of year.


After hustling and bustling through local malls checking off items on my holiday “to-do” list I feel the need for a snack. As schools close for winter breaks, and play schedules activate, busy moms may have several onslaughts of hungry visitors to the kitchen throughout the holidays.


The Peanut Butter and Cheese Toasts pictured here make a quick and easy snack or lunch meal during busy times.  They make for a pretty plate, too and leave you with lots of times for holiday fun with family and friends.


What are your kids' favorite holiday-time lunches or snacks? I'm always interested in new food ideas.

Enjoy this holiday season, and eat well the Easy way!
