What could be sweeter and simpler than a Chocolate Banana. A half banana topped with low-fat vanilla yogurt and drizzled with melted chocolate is as satisfying as a banana split, and at only 117 calories, this scrumptious treat is just a fraction of the calories.

These Quick Fix Nachos will turn a frown upside down fast and are so simple to make, kids will have as much fun making them as they will eating them. All you need are round corn tortilla chips and some shredded cheddar and salsa on top. Simply melt this dish in the toaster oven. If you want to pump up the protein a bit, just add a layer of refried beans.

Toddlers and preschoolers will love eating cheese if it’s pressed into fun shapes like stars and hearts. This also works well with fruits like melon and pineapple. Pick up some small cookie cutters in basic shapes and watch their eyes light up at snack time.

Throw together some Quick Kebabs the kids can eat in the car with little mess on the way to after-school soccer practice or dance lessons. Any cubed fruit will work, but for something extra tasty, add whole grapes, figs or dried apricots, along with cubes of cheddar, chicken, turkey or some of Hickory Farms award-winning Summer Sausage.
