Kid-Friendly Matzo Recipes for Passover

For people of the Jewish faith, Passover is a time of religious significance. Eating matzo  – also known as matzah or unleavened bread products – is one way to remember that Passover and celebrate Jewish heritage. These recipes use matzo in kid-friendly dishes like granola and grilled cheese. Finish your meal off with matzo s’mores or chocolate caramel matzo.
