Kraft Hockeyville: Food for Thought

Eating Right Can Help Your Family Reach For The Stars

A proper eating program is just as important to an elite athlete’s success as the right training program. But that is not always easy to do with work, school and after-school activities, not to mention multiple trips to the rink.

Still, it’s important to resist the lure of the fast food drive through and create nutritious and delicious meals that the entire family can enjoy.

Kraft Heinz can help with some tried-and-true recipes that even the pickiest of eaters will love. Check out any number of great dinner ideas and other helpful tips at Kraftrecipes.com.
