After-school lunches should ideally be nutritious, delicious, and easy to prepare. Here are ten ideas to consider:

  1. Turkey and Cheese Roll-Ups:
    Roll slices of turkey and cheese together, securing them with toothpicks. Add some whole-grain crackers and a side of fruit or veggies.
  2. Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup:
    Prepare a classic grilled cheese sandwich and pair it with a warm bowl of tomato soup. It's a comforting and satisfying meal.
  3. Vegetable Quesadillas:
    Fill whole-grain tortillas with sautéed vegetables and cheese. Serve with salsa or guacamole for dipping.
  4. Pasta Salad:
    Toss cooked pasta with vegetables, protein (like grilled chicken or chickpeas), and a light dressing. Chill and serve cold.
  5. Hummus and Veggie Wraps:
    Spread hummus on a whole-grain wrap and add a variety of fresh vegetables. Roll it up and slice it into smaller portions.
  6. Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps:
    Make a chicken salad using grilled chicken, Greek yogurt, celery, and spices. Serve the chicken salad in lettuce leaves.
  7. Mini Bagel Pizzas:
    Top mini bagels with tomato sauce, cheese, and your favorite toppings like veggies, pepperoni, or ham. Bake until the cheese is melted.
  8. Smoothies:
    Blend together fruits, yogurt, milk, or juice to make a nutritious smoothie. Include spinach or kale for an extra health boost.
  9. Stuffed Bell Peppers:
    Fill halved and hollowed-out bell peppers with a mixture of cooked ground meat (or meat substitute), rice, and veggies. Bake until tender.
  10. Chicken or Tofu Skewers:
    Skewer pieces of grilled chicken or tofu, along with colorful bell peppers and cherry tomatoes. Serve with a side of dipping sauce.

Parents Unhappy with Disney's NYC Christmas Village

Disney's The Santa Clauses' Winter Wonderland on the rooftop of Pier 17 is receiving negative feedback from local parents. Many have taken to social media to complain about various aspects of the attraction. One issue is the size of the ice rink, which parents describe as "tiny." Some parents have also expressed disappointment with the appearance of Santa, claiming he is too skinny and doesn't fill out the red suit. The most concerning complaint is regarding a slide that reportedly caused injury to a child. The slide was subsequently shut down by security, and an ambulance was called. Parents also noted the absence of any Disney presence inside the attraction, despite it being advertised as a Disney event. There were no Disney characters or trademarks to be found. Another complaint relates to the size of the skating area, which some parents felt was too small. Overall, parents are frustrated and disappointed with their experiences, citing it as a waste of money. In response to the negative feedback surrounding Disney's The Santa Clauses' Winter Wonderland on the rooftop of Pier 17, it is crucial for the organizers to address these concerns and take proactive steps to rectify the issues. Firstly, the size of the ice rink should be expanded to accommodate a larger number of skaters and provide a more enjoyable experience for families. This can help alleviate the dissatisfaction expressed by parents regarding the current size being described as "tiny." Additionally, steps should be taken to ensure the safety of all attendees, especially young children. The incident involving the slide and injury to a child is deeply concerning and should prompt a comprehensive review of all equipment in the attraction to prevent further accidents. Immediate action to address this issue and provide reassurance to parents is crucial for rebuilding trust in the event.
