Healthy Recipes for All Ages

Healthy FoodWith the help of KU interns Hayes Miller, Tyler Golden and Claire Shanovich, KABC has created a collection of healthy recipes for all ages.  These recipes are not only delicious, but can help folks with dietary restrictions due issues such as to heart health, diabetes, or the need to build body strength.  We have individual recipe cards available in our office, too – so give us a call at 800-525-1782 or send an email to request.
