This is something I struggle with as a parent because on one hand, cheese is a good source of protein and calcium, but on the other, it is high in fat and sodium and I’d like to expose them to a wider variety of foods. Lately I’ve been serving more flavorful cheeses in smaller quantities.

The Minimalist - Things to Prepare Before the Turkey Goes in the Oven. Healthy Homemade Fritos. I noticed that January 29th is National Corn Chip day (this is the kind of thing I notice) and it got me thinking, where in the world did corn chips come from in the first place?
