Kid-Friendly Food Anthology

Sharing is caring!

Look, some of you have kids that eat healthy stuff. You know, green things. Leafy things. Things that grow from the ground. You’re not out there searching for ways to hide healthy foods into their diet, or considering bribes or blackmail to get your kids to eat certain things. For some of you, your kids don’t eat chicken nuggets as one of their food groups.

This post is not for those people.

If you’re feeling uninspired about cooking kid-friendly meals, here is an anthology of ideas that may work for you. Nothing too revolutionary here, but sometimes just looking at a list of ideas will get you feeling inspired in no time. I canvassed my FB friends about what their go-to kid-friendly meals were, and here is what we have:

  • “Risi e bisi! It’s a Venetian rice dish with bacon, peas and Parmesan cheese. Lovely as a side or a main with some griddles asparagus. Works every time! :)”
  • “Pasta & meatballs”
  • http://autumncalabrese.com/blogs/chicken-nuggets “I bake them, bc I don’t have to watch them as closely and can fit TONS in the oven :)”
  • “Mac and cheese!!! Homemade cheese sauce and I throw in broccoli or tomatoes and sometimes use Apple chicken sausage. Delicious.”
  • “Try wonton soup, chicken tetrazzini, chicken pot pie, and lo mein!”
  • “Nothing. My kids will eat nothing.”
  • “Same here…unless it’s a breakfast food.”
  • “Tonight I am making kielbasa and rice with broccoli. Two out of three eat it!”
  • “Breakfast for dinner, pasta, steak” (I would assume not in one meal, ha!)
  • “Ham, peas and Mac n cheese (really ham is already cooked so you’re just heating it up!)”
  • “Tomato bisque soup with rotini noodles added to it (make it with milk instead of water, and can add a little cheese to it, too)”
  • “We make pasta sauce and soups in big batches and freeze them. Less prep the next time and both freeze very well!”
  • “Brussels sprouts; crockpot tortellini soup; enchiladas; tacos; red lentil chili; tortilla soup; Greek chicken (baked or grilled); turkey burgers; baked sweet potato fries; grilled fish”
  • “Tacos in any form, meatballs and pasta, grilled chicken rice and veg.”
  • “Panko bread crumb chicken!”

For my house, my usuals are:

What kid-friendly meals work in your house?  Please share, I’m ALWAYS looking for ideas for my picky eaters!  I’d love to use this post as a work-in-progress, and update with more ideas!
