Delecious and Easy to Make Chicken Nachos for the Kids

Nearly seven million American children come home from school to an empty house, clamoring for a quick, appetizing snack only to settle for junk food. But instead of reaching for the sweets during those cool after-school days or hot summer nights, kids can put on the chef’s hat and prepare their own easy, tasty snacks that are just as satisfying.

Kids often shy away from preparing anything other than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich because it’s too difficult and time-consuming. But there is a wide variety of products available at the grocery store, like Tyson refrigerated, fully-cooked chicken and steak strips, which simplify the snack- and meal-making process for kids. The strips go from package to plate in minutes making it easy to prepare kid-favorite snacks and meals such as pizza, tacos, and pasta. These well-balanced, do-it-yourself options are high in protein and have zero grams trans-fat, so parents can feel good about providing kids with a wholesome alternative to help power them through their active days.
