3 Snack or Lunch Ideas


We all need new ideas to keep our kids eating healthy and entertained. Especially nowadays, with many spending more time at home and always hungry. And let's be honest, we would like something different too.

Children like fun and unexpected foods, and Tropical cheese can save the day for you and your family. It is so versatile, you can use it in many ways and combine it with different foods. Take out your Tropical Queso de Freir or your Queso Blanco and take notes.

Our friend from Recetas Lily shared with us some ideas that you are going to love. You can take these anywhere with two lunchbox ideas and one to-go in a bag idea. And of course, you can put everything on a plate and surprise your children at home.

How about some grilled Tropical Cheese accompanied by a sweet sandwich and a savory one? It makes for more fun, and they will not leave a bite.

Or a cheese skewer (banderilla) combining vegetables, jam and ham. Sometimes just changing the presentation from sandwich to skewer, will peak their interest and appetite.

Or some delicious cheese sticks and grilled quesadillas. Cooking on the grill adds a rich touch to everything, and the quesadillas in the bag will stay warm and will not dry out. All perfectly paired.

Remember balanced meals are important, that's why Lily gives us ideas with different ingredients and flavors to keep your children nourished and full of energy.
