3 new ideas for healthy, quick meals

In celebration of Kids Eat Right Month, here are three quick, healthy and delicious meal ideas that the whole family will enjoy.

#1 Overnight Oats [Breakfast] - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwrOLv4LJLM

Overnight oats combine steel cut oats and yogurt so they’re nice and creamy.  You combine it overnight and then add your add-ins in the morning. 

#2 Black bean sliders [Bento Box Lunch] - http://www.eatright.org/resource/food/planning-and-prep/recipes/black-bean-sliders-recipe

This entree can be made for a school lunch and paired with some other Mexican sides to round out the meal.  It has lots of colors and a cool bento box to make it even more fun.

#3 Carrot Fries [After-School Snack] - http://www.eatright.org/resource/food/planning-and-prep/recipes/carrot-fries-recipe

Carrots have a sweet flavor and are loaded with beta carotene, vitamin K and even vitamin C.  You could include orange and red carrots to make it more colorful and Greek yogurt dressing to add some protein to the snack.
