Salad Kabobs

Cut up veggies your kids love. Cut cubes of fat free or low fat cheese. Slide the cheese and veggies onto bamboo skewers. Lightly brush a coat of fat free Italian dressing, or flavor of your choice, over the veggie kabobs. Place the kabobs in an oblong dish and store them in your refrigerator.

Fruit Parfaits

Make these parfaits with chopped fruits and berries. Use fat free whipped cream for the parfaits. Crush a few walnuts, then place them in a bowl. In large glasses, alternate rows of berries, nuts and whipped cream until you get to top of the glass. Make a few parfaits the night before, then store them in the refrigerator for your kids to have when they get home from school.
