The best part about oatmeal is that you can bake with it, make pancakes, add them to smoothies, and also make savory dishes!
For parents looking to raise their kids on a vegetarian diet – or not – Tofu is one of the best foods out there. Made from soy and full of anti-cancer and tissue building nutrients, use it in soups, smoothies, and lunches for a healthy treat.
