Instead of using bread, you can make a healthier snack using cucumbers. My kids love a good chicken salad sandwich, but putting it on cucumber helps them get their veggies too.

Whenever I ask a kid what they want to eat, their first response is usually Mac & Cheese. But, it isn’t very nutritious. Adding a little kale is the perfect way to make a deliciously healthy Mac & Cheese dish.
