Make life easier for yourself this summer with these three creative lunch ideas that the kids can even help make. Celebrity chef, cookbook author and media personality Kevin Roberts has created these dishes to guarantee a yummy lunch that is kid tested and mother approved. Of course, kids should always be supervised by an adult when cooking anything in the kitchen.
Mrs. Paul’s and Van de Kamp’s Fish Sticks are made from only 100% Whole White Fish Fillets to provide 100% great tasting, crunchy fish stick that everyone loves. Some brands of fish sticks are made from minced fish, which means that bits of the fish have been pulverized and reformed into the form of a stick. It’s the superior quality and great taste of Mrs. Paul’s and Van de Kamp’s products that has earned them the ChefsBest® Award for “Best Taste” since 2008 by an independent panel of professional chefs.
