Skip the frozen bagel pizza bites and let your children customize their own mini pizzas using healthier ingredients. Set up a pizza bar with mini whole wheat bagel halves, marinara sauce and toppings like chopped vegetables, ground beef, diced ham, pepperoni, shredded mozzarella cheese and feta cheese crumbles. Once your child creates his own personal pizza snack, bake for around 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Instead of becoming wasted dead space, this kitchen corner uses lovely floating wood shelves to add additional storage. Accessories on the shelves are kept within a similar color palette to avoid a cluttered look.

Joanna Goddard, creator of Cup of Jo, loves to bring “slow foods” when traveling with her kids. What’s a slow food? Basically, any food that takes a long time to eat and keeps the kids happy and calm for as long as possible. Think dehydrated fruits, lollipops and day-old bagels.
