Storm days are perfect days to stay inside, where it’s toasty warm and have some fun. Meals on a storm day could be just as fun and comforting. Try making your child’s snow day extra fun by serving up something special. Here are some great ideas you can try:

Lunch:

 Snow day surprise

 Serve up a platter of delicious healthy finger foods and call it a snow day surprise…this is great for your child and their friends! For instance you can serve a platter of strips of grilled cheese sandwich, grilled homemade chicken strips, homemade baked sweet potato fries and a selection of raw veggies with dipping sauce.

Supper:

Snowballs and rice

Although they might not look exactly like snowballs, just the name will make your child excited for supper when you make them some delicious snowballs and rice. To make it a healthier choice use lean ground meat, whole wheat rice and add a side of vegetables.
