The midterm break is here and it’s time to start thinking about keeping the kids occupied! 

Whether its playing in the garden home or running from school to sports practice, it may not seem like your kids need more energy but what your kids eat can mean the difference between being hyperactive and being happy.

At any stage of life, healthy eating and physical activity is important for good health and well-being, but especially for young people as it contributes to their growth and development.

Whether it’s GAA, swimming or hockey, it’s good for them to get involved but it’s also important to make sure that they receive the right amount of energy to stay active.

Using a selection of healthy ingredients, such as Homebird’s range of ready to serve chicken and turkey, there are a number of quick and easy recipes that you can prepare to ensure that they are fueled up and ready to go. Getting the kids involved in preparing their meal is another simple and fun way to encourage them to try new recipes!

Here is one of our favourites!
