A Fun Family Holiday


by Produce for Kids

When we think of the holiday season, our minds go straight to thoughts of freshly baked cookies, lights on every house, gifts, holiday music and festivities. This year, we want you to add tomatoes to your holiday plans! With their beautiful red color, tomatoes are perfect for adding flair to holiday recipes.

We’ve come up with some simple ways to have fun (and stay healthy) this holiday season. There’s something for everyone in this holiday series of recipes featuring the Garden Fresh Flavor® of Village Farms® tomatoes. Kids will enjoy trimming their tree with tomatoes with our spin on mini pizzas and they’ll light the way to a healthy meal as they place a tomato for Rudolph’s nose on a delicious tomato grilled cheese.

Adults strapped for time will love the surprisingly simple and delectable twist on savory finger foods. With only a few ingredients each there’s no need to check your grocery list twice! Known for being packed with vitamins C and K and lycopene tomatoes are a great way to support brain health. So relax and allow yourself the treat of extra family time this season.
