Hungry for quick, nutritious meals? Here’s an answer

The percentage of the family food budget spent on away-from-home food has steadily increased since the 1970s and so has the amount of calories families consume, said a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service family and consumer sciences expert. To help address this situation, the Dinner Tonight! program was developed by AgriLife Extension agents to provide resources and recipes to help encourage at-home family mealtime. This program provides quick, nutritious, cost-effective recipes to consumers through weekly video webcasts and other web-based methods, including blogs and Facebook. There are now more than 200 free video webcasts of easy-to-prepare nutritious recipes available at under the Dinner Tonight! tab.
