The wonderful folks at Nourish Nova Scotia have been hard at work developing nutritious, healthy and FUN recipes for students & families this holiday season! 

Tips for Planning:

  • Try new healthy foods. Kids like adventure! 
  • Get children involved in celebration planning by asking them for their favourite healthy snack ideas, or giving them choices and get them to vote on their top picks. 
  • Choose foods for fun, good taste and health. Celebrations that feature healthful foods provide opportunities for children to practice making wise food choices.
  • Serve a balanced menu consisting of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein (like egg, yogurt, low-fat cheese). 
  • Cut foods into fun shapes using cookie cutters and allow children to assemble their own snacks. 
  • Serve water or milk for beverages.
