Recipes and Snacks Featuring fresh Natural Delights® Medjool Dates

Back-to-School Means Back-on-Track!

Summer's over and it’s time to get the family on a new back-to-school schedule. To help out, we've assembled a collection of delicious and healthy (but super easy) recipes to help you strategize quick breakfasts, build healthy lunches, and serve up healthy snacks for your on-the-go family.

Get mornings off to a fast and healthy start! Medjool Date Whole Grain and Oat Bars are packed with nutrition and easy to make on Sunday for the whole week. Protein-packed Medjool Date Parfaits are a great make-ahead breakfast, too - just store them in mason jars and add in the granola when serving to keep it all crunchy! Our Medjool Date Steel Oats are super fast to assemble, especially if you prep the toppings in storage containers and let the kids put it all together.

Tasty lunches packed with nutrition are key to making sure the kids keep up strength through the day. We've gathered 3 easy ways to freshen up the lunchbox, each with energy-packed fresh Medjool dates, paired with a protein partner. Medjool Date Fruit & Cheese Stackers are an easy, delicious combo (omit the skewer for the little ones). PB and Medjool Date Star Sandwiches look (and taste) amazing, and a cookie cutter makes them a breeze! Our Sweet Crunchy Medjool Snackers recipe reinvents a classic.

School is just the beginning of a very busy day. After-school activities take up lots of time, and much of that time is spent in the car, taxiing kids from place to place. The kids need a pick-me-up to get through the afternoon blahs, so car snacks are a must! Medjool Date Pairs are the simplest of all to prepare – just delicious Natural Delights® Medjool dates – two dates provide a serving of healthy energy, potassium and fiber. Our recipe Roll Your Own Energy Balls features a simple base recipe with a selection of options for coating the outside – and getting the kids involved in creating their favourite combos. Our Protein-Packed Trail Mix features a modern and tasty combo – again, great to make with the kids while teaching that healthy eating can be delicious, too.

After the hustle and bustle of a busy week, Mom needs a breather. Treat yourself to one of our delicious no-sugar-added cocktails featuring Medjool dates – so different and relaxing – just the thing to unwind!
