The Registered Dietitians at Dairy Council of California have hand-selected a variety of recipes to help you prepare healthy, balanced meals and snacks at home for your family. MORE

We believe there are no "good" or "bad" foods; and all foods, even dessert, can fit in a healthy lifestyle. The key to a healthy diet is building the majority of your food choices around nutrient-rich foods from all the food groups and being physically active.

Use this recipe search page to find recipes based on time to prepare, meal type like breakfast or beverage, nutrition content like calcium, special features like "Kids Can Help Make It" or "Slow Cooker/Crock Pot", even specific food groups. You can even type a main ingredient into the search bar, then select the check boxes below for a more powerful and specific search.

Most recipes have nutrient information available and some recipes have tips on ingredient substitutions, special preparations to adjust nutrition content, how make a recipe ahead of time or even how to involve your child in preparing the recipe.

If you find a recipe you like, be sure to add it to your ZipList recipe box, meal plan and shopping list!
