Good & Good for You Meals for a Flavorful New Year

Take a break from the ordinary and settle into the comforts of the best playground around the home.

Shake up the routine by doing everything backwards. Put on your comfy pajamas right after school. Get together for a board game with a twist and move the pieces from finish to start. Make your end of day meal more festive by serving breakfast for dinner or eating dessert as the first course.

Families who regularly eat together are closer and happier than those who don’t. Try a one-pot dish such as this White Chicken Chili made with fiber-rich beans, tender chicken and creamy Nestlé Carnation Evaporated Milk.
