Back to School

Featured Recipe: Cheesy Twists

Cheesy Twists

This is a great kid-friendly dish. My niece and nephew love working with pizza dough, because they can really work with their hands, and it is completely safe and accessible. Try it with our 15 Minute Marinara as a dipping sauce.

Organic Mixed Medley Cherry Tomatoes
from Durst Farms

Durst Growers
Stop Organic Mixed Medley Cherry Tomatoes
Save $4.98 on 2. $2.50 each, one pint package.

Since the early 1980s, Jim and Deborah Durst have been growing and distributing some of the best-tasting organic produce around. Well known for their exceptional cherry tomatoes and watermelon, the Dursts base their farm practices on the maxim "Feed the soil and the soil will feed the plants." This fourth-generation farm is located in Esparto, and their organic cherry tomatoes make for a healthy and tasty after-school snack.

Ice Pops & Ice Cream Sandwich Molds


Tovolo’s ice pop molds let you make popsicles in all kinds of crazy shapes, including shooting stars, rockets, and even a very “bling” ring jewel pop. You can also use their ice cream cookie sandwich molds to create other sweet summer treats. We think these are a very “cool” way to cool down this summer.

Health Notes with Dr. LizDr Liz

Snacking Sense

As you gear up for the start of school, make sure healthy snacking is on your to-do list. Kids need to snack, especially after school. Their growing, active bodies and brains need fuel more frequently throughout the day than adults. In fact, 20 to 30 percent of kids’ daily energy needs should come from snacks.

After-school snack offerings should supply good-for-you carbohydrates from whole grains, fruit and vegetables. These foods also provide needed fiber for healthy intestinal tracts.

Snacks should also supply protein such as dairy (milk, yogurt, cheese), soy (soy cheese or milk), lean meats (roasted chicken or turkey) or peanut butter. Kids not only need this for growth, but protein also helps their tummies feel full and holds them through to dinnertime. Here are some quick-fix snack suggestions:

  • Mix ½ cup Greek yogurt (higher in protein than regular) and a teaspoon of honey for a sweet dip with apple slices.
  • On a whole-grain English muffin half, spread a tablespoon of pasta sauce and melt a slice of mozzarella cheese to make a fast pizza, or try Nugget’s recipe for Toaster Oven Pizza.
  • Make an irresistible snack mix by combining 2 cups microwave popcorn and ¼ cup peanuts tossed with a tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Whip up a fast shake with 1 cup of low-fat chocolate milk, ½ banana and two ice cubes in a blender.
  • Spread half of a whole-wheat tortilla with 1 teaspoon of low-fat sandwich spread and roll up with a slice of roasted turkey and one grated carrot inside for a crunchy hand-held wrap.
