As a mom it can be difficult getting our kids to eat enough vegetables. I think one sure way to get your kids excited to eat healthier is to allow them to help you in the kitchen.

In this Stuffed Poblanos recipe, your littles can open up the can of diced tomatoes and depending on their age they can also help chop the vegetables. Another simple task they can easily do is add the shredded cheese to the meat mixture and the lime juice to the bell pepper salsa.

Meal planning eliminates dinnertime stress and overspending. Rather than navigating weeknight meals without a plan, go in with a plan and dinner is served. Simple!
