Try these 3 things instead.
Instead of ice cream try a lemonade smoothie.Lemonade is one of the more traditional drinks served during the summer because it is cold and refreshing on hot days. Use fresh lemons to create a low-sugar smoothie that blends the taste of lemonade with other healthy ingredients. You can add fruits to make it sweet.
Instead of pepperoni pizza try a fruit pizza. Many juicy and refreshing fruits are in season over the summer, including berries, cherries and nectarines. Combining several different varieties will boost your child’s intake of potassium, vitamin C and fiber. Make a pizza crust following the package directions. Add a reduced-fat or fat-free cream cheese with a tablespoon of honey and a shake of cinnamon. Allow the pizza crust to cool and spread with the cream cheese. Layer sliced fruits over the cream cheese and sprinkle with additional cinnamon.
Instead of hots dogs try chicken dogs. Slice chicken breast. Season lightly and throw on the grill. It will make dinner fun.
