Getting kids to eat healthy can be challenging, to say the least! These chicken, tuna, and pasta salad recipes offer a little something for every taste.

Don’t be fooled by the fat free and low fat ingredients listed, as they will not take anything away from the taste. It will, however, take away much of the fat and calories!
