The holidays are here and soon my kids will have a long holiday break from school. I looked and my boys are off for three weeks this year! I’ll have to make sure I have lots of lunch and snack options on hand!
You guys know I love the holidays. I try to do fun themed meals and treats for my guys. They grow up so fast and I try to enjoy it while I can. Soon, they won’t want to spend as much time with me in the kitchen…so I have to make the most of it.
Like most kids, my boys would choose those less-than-healthy items if given their choice. One of the ways that I can get more fruits and veggies in their diet is to opt for delicious products from Dominex. My boys get great taste and I get the satisfaction of knowing that they are filling up on the good stuff. With products like the Dominex Angel Parm Bites, I can give the boys healthy eggplant in a delicious bite size treat that they love!
These bites combine the ingredients of Eggplant Parmesan in a bite size morsel. Eggplant, mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce are covered nugget-style with Dominex signature Italian breading. These Bites are an excellent replacement for Chicken nuggets or pizza bites and are a great way to have fun with veggies.
Some days I serve these with a little bowl of marinara for dipping and then other days we create fun foodscapes that make lunch and snack time a blast! Since it’s the holiday season, I thought I would share one of our favorite ways to munch on Dominex Parm Bites. As you can see, we create snowmen and reindeer that are almost too cute to eat. Add in a broccoli tree and some ranch and you have a fun and delicious meal that the kids can’t wait to eat!
For those of you that don’t know too much about eggplant – it is a healthy eater’s friend! One cup has only 35 calories and 10 percent of the recommended daily fiber. Eggplants are high in copper and potassium, making them a great energy booster. They are also high in bioflavonoids and other antioxidants. Eggplant makes a healthy and satisfying meat substitute. Learn more about these products on the Dominex website.
It doesn’t take very much effort to add some healthy fun to mealtime. Check out my “Under the Sea” foodscape using Dominex Veggie Fries. No matter which you serve your kiddos, they are sure to love it!

If you have a fun foodscape that you do at your house, snap a picture and email it. I am always looking for fun lunch/dinner options for the boys!
