Kid-Friendly Recipes

If you have children, you know what a challenge meal times can be. That is why it is so important to get your kids enjoying REAL food early on (not oat cereal and cheese fish crackers!)

Having a repertoire of nutrient-dense kid friendly recipes available can make this easy to achieve. By having healthy and delicious recipes on hand, you will be able to provide your children with nutritious meals and snacks while avoiding the unhealthy, processed junk so many children today are eating.

Remember: Healthy eating habits start in childhood!

Delicious & Quick Recipes for Kids

Many parents think they’ll need to prepare special meals to get their kids to eat. But there are many healthy family-friendly recipes that will satisfy everyone.

“Pick up” foods like – Lemon Garlic Drumsticks, Crispy Chicken Fingers and Paleo Coconut Shrimp are great for young toddlers. Not only are they rich in protein and provide an assortment of important vitamins and minerals, but they help little ones develop motor skills.

Baked Sweet Potato Wedges or Sweet Potato Chips are a healthy alternative to French fries (packed with beta-carotene) and make a great accompaniment to protein-rich foods.

Sneaking Superfoods Into Kids Meals (And How to Makeover Unhealthy Treats)

Want to pack even more nutrients into your little ones meals? It’s easy to sneak in superfoods like organic spinach, broccoli,  carrots – and even nutrient-packed liver – when you have the right kid friendly recipe.

Meatballs and meatloaf make the perfect vehicle for superfoods, so experiment with “doctoring up” some of your favorite recipes.

It’s also pretty easy to makeover many of the unhealthy (and expensive!) packaged foods that kids crave. Fruit leathers, candies like peanut butter cups, and even spreads and toppings like Nutella and Magic Shell an get a healthy boost using real food ingredients.

Providing kids with healthy foods that taste great gives you the perfect opportunity to talk with them about why being healthy is good… and how delicious it can be! And when you get them involved in the process of cooking and meal planning, they’ll be even more likely to try new foods (and maybe even help with clean up!).

Before long, they’ll start making these same healthy choices on their own and develop healthy eating habits to carry with them for the rest of their lives.
