Father’s Day is coming up this weekend! It’s the perfect day to cook up a special meal or treat with your dad. These Father’s Day recipes encourage fun for the whole family in both a sweet and savory way.
Grilling doesn’t just mean burgers..you can build your own kabobs! Kabobs are a fun way for everyone to have something they enjoy with a variety of protein and vegetables. Prepare the options together and then have your kids pick out what they want on the skewer! For a variety of color and nutrition we recommend bell peppers, zucchini and tomatoes as your vegetables. Protein can be anything from chicken to beef or even seafood!

The sides to every meal are just as important and fun as the main course! Not only is this dish yummy and colorful, but your kids can help pick out the right colors of fruits for the rainbow. Sometimes the inside of the fruit can be a different color from the outside, so a little research beforehand may help your little chefs figure out what fruits are the perfect fit for their tasty creation.

What burger is complete without a side of fries? Frying can be stressful and harder for kids to get involved. With oven baked fries, everyone can take part in putting together this side. From simple salt to garlic herb, there are many ways to season the potatoes. Have everyone pitch their ideas for how to season the fries, and it’ll be a fun side for all!
