Healthy Kids Cook: Weeknight Mix 'n' Match Noodle Bowls
Good food made easy
ParentMap and PCC Natural Markets have partnered to produce an exciting web series called Healthy Kids Cook, designed to encourage families to make a healthy habit of cooking fresh food together in the kitchen. In this season’s Healthy Kids Cook, we’re focusing on quick and easy meals that you and your family will love making at home. Each month, PCC Chef Jackie Freeman hosts families in the PCC kitchen to create a quick, filling, fresh and fun recipe featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables.
This month, we invited two Girl Scouts, Becca and Nur from troop number 45054, to help make easy Mix-‘n’-Match Noodle Bowls. These warming and filling bowls are a great way to feed the family a hearty meal on busy nights.
If you are a Girl Scout who loves to cook, find your own cooking patch here or at your local Girl Scout store.
