Since March is National Nutrition Month, together, the American Heart Association and Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital is encouraging families to eat healthy. The American Heart Association recommends that children, depending on age, get ¾ cup to 3 cups of veggies per day. Adding onions and peppers to a favorite meal – TACOS! – is a great way to "sneak" veggies to your kids. If your kids are picky eaters or less inclined to eat the healthy foods you want to serve, the American Heart Association recommends including them in meal prep! For this meal, let your kids fold the tacos when it's time to eat so they can put the finishing touches on a healthy, fun dish. Anita Jimenez, a Fit4AllKids Culinary Expert at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital joined Great Day Tampa Bay (GDTB) with their Athena Breakfast Taco Recipe…….UM…UM…. GOOD!
