My family loves guacamole – all kinds actually! However, my little ones prefer a more kid friendly version made with fresh mangos, corn, and tomatoes.
I’m excited to share that this recipe was inspired from my partnership with Produce for Kids! During the month of March Produce For Kids has partnered with health-conscious brands, retailers commodities and dietitians to kick off its Mission for Nutrition Program. This inaugural programs focuses on a healthy diet and meal prep planning to help families consume more fresh produce.
They have made meal planning so incredibly easy with their FREE Ebook that includes a weeks worth of recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a shopping list and meal planning tips. Plus there is a chance to win a ton of meal prep prizes like a KitchenAid Mixer, Air Fryer and Instant Pot. To get the Ebook and enter to win the amazing prizes, simply click HERE.HERE.
Health-conscious brands partnering in the program include Avocados From Mexico, Crispy Green®, Earthbound Farm®, Eat Smart®, NatureFresh™ Farms, Pero Family Farms, RealSweet® and the National Watermelon Promotion Board. You will find all of these items in the recipes provided in the Ebook!
In celebration of National Nutritional Month® I decided to make a healthy and easy family snack. My kiddos loved this recipe for guacamole. The sweetness from the mango was the big hit for them. The corn added a nice pop and the tomatoes were great for color!
The entire family loved it – we enjoyed it with carrots and pretzel crisps.
This topic is so important to me. I often get asked how does your family eat all the food you make? I love to bake and share desserts and I do believe there is room for those types of indulgences in a diet but we eat them in moderation. I give a lot of my desserts away to friends, family and my husband’s co-workers.
Most of our meals and snacks include, fresh fruit, cheese, vegetables and protein. All of the other stuff is fun and there for special treats after we fill up on the good stuff.
I believe a large part of this success is through meal planning and prepping. PFK has done an outstanding job with their free meal planning Ebook. I find that if you take the time to look up recipes, write down the ingredients and then shop JUST for those items, your week will be filled with mostly produce, protein and healthy snacks.
I suggest you download the Free Ebook and read about Mission for Nutrition to learn more on how to better feed your family. I can honestly tell you that meal planning saves time, money and is simply healthier for your family.
Also – As with all Produce for Kids programs, Feeding America’s programs that benefit families and children will receive a donation tied to Mission for Nutrition. I love partnering with this wonderful cause – money is always donated to help support hungry families. Please stay involved and learn more on what you can do to help!
