How to Build Your Own Rice Bowl
Layer four types of foods to make a meal that kids love to cook and eat.
Start with rice.
Then add fruit, vegetables, or both. Use fresh, frozen or canned.
Next, add a layer of lean protein – such as beans, eggs, chicken, fish or tofu.
Then top with a sauce, toppings, spice, or a mixture – such as soy sauce, salad dressing, pineapple juice, barbecue sauce, low-fat cheese or garlic powder.
