Easy Kid Friendly Dinners
Kids will be kids. They are picky eaters and sometimes you just have to hide their veggies in their meals for them to get something healthy into their growing bodies. This is one reason I chose to compile a list of easy kid friendly dinners to help out!
I’m always trying to find ways to get my kiddos to eat a little healthier. It’s impossible to completely hide sugar and carbs from their diet because this world is full of those things but there are ways to get them some more veggies (and have them love those dishes).
It takes some practice finding the one recipe that they will be ok with eating, and especially figuring out how to hide their veggies in that specific dish.
How can I sneak in healthy foods for my kids?
Something I love making for my kids are different type of smoothies, where I sneak in spinach. Here are some smoothie options with sneaky veggies in them!
You may also consider trying out a healthy or even a gluten-free meal delivery service to help to make sure your kids are getting the nutrients they should be eating, especially at dinnertime. Food delivery services also make your meal-planning and your life a lot simpler.
I recommend Sun Basket for this. They have healthy, family-friendly food meal options that are organic and easy. They even offer vegetarian, family , gluten-free, lean and clean, and paleo options!
Here’s a bonus coupon for Sun Basket if you’d like to try it out for your family: $60 off-$40 and $20 off the first and second orders
On our list of fun dinners below, some of the options hide awesome veggies and nutrients into kid-friendly dishes!
Better yet, these recipes are FUN to make with kids! When dinner time rolls around and you’re tired and just looking for a quick fix of a meal…
How do you include kids during dinnertime?
Make a fun activity out of it- you will both enjoy quality time making these recipes!
Take a break from parenting and start a side hustle to make your family some $$!
So, if you’re looking for something to make that your kiddo can eat for dinner and especially something that he/she will love, come back to this post and save some great recipes for you and your kiddos to make together.
Here’s the list of easy kid-friendly dinners your child will LOVE:
