A Quick and Healthy Snack Kids Love

If your kids are like our kids then chances are they don’t always eat what you make them for lunch. Part of being a good parent is figuring out with your kids what is it that they would like to eat for lunch if they simply refuse to eat what you’ve already prepared. It might even help to ask for their input before making lunch/dinner and then getting upset and frustrated when they refuse to eat it. Many parents feel that a good disciplined child is one who eats the meals you prepared for him/her without a fight. But it really is important to involve children in the decision making process.

Not only is it delicious but it is quite healthy too. Triscuits contain only whole wheat, soybean oil, and salt. The company also sells the product with 50% less salt. When preparing such a snack it’s advisable to use real cheese and not simulated or processed “American” cheese as it contains a lot of artificial additives to preserve freshness.

How to make Triscuits and cheese

1. Place triscuits on a microwave safe plate

2. Sprinkle shredded cheese (mozzarella, cheddar) on top

3. Microwave for about 20 seconds

4. Allow to cool slightly and serve

    This looks simple enough. We’ve done it before but without melting the cheese.

    I would be quite surprised with any parent who doesnt know how to melt cheese in a microwave. But I guess you never know.

    The “How to” part was supposed to be a bit of a joke. But you’re right, you never know.
