North Texas Recipe Book — Volume 5
Welcome to the fifth edition of the kids teaching kids® North Texas recipe book! The program continues to make great strides each year in getting kids to eat fruits and vegetables and try new fruits and vegetables. This year's edition is a collection of top snacks from Texas ProStart® culinary students in 15 North Texas school districts.
Snacking is a big part of a kid's daily food intake, about 27 percent. High-calorie snacks with little nutritional value are consumed daily by our children, which can result in them being overweight and at risk for diabetes. Childhood obesity has tripled over the past 30 years, causing an alarming increase in preventable diseases and health risks to children. The book aims for kids and parents to work together to teach our children how to make healthy food choices one snack at a time.
We encourage you and your family to enjoy these fun-to-make, fun-to-eat recipes together.
