PIN Kid Friendly Meals Plan
I seriously can’t believe it’s the new year already. TIME IS FLYING.
Considering it’s the New Year, I bet a lot of you have some resolutions to make some healthier choices, exercise, get healthy ETC. It can be easy to make those choices for yourself…
BUT WHAT ABOUT GETTING YOUR FAMILY ON BOARD? How will they like your new “healthy” cooking style? Will there be SO MUCH complaining during meal time?
That is why I am saving with tons of kid friendly recipes in this kid friendly meals plan – complete with a grocery list!
Now, as you probably know, I do not have children so I typically don’t have to think of kid friendly dinner ideas. However, Mr. FFF basically eats like a child at times, so there’s that ;). I’m kidding.
However, I was a kid at one point in my life and I still remember what I would have called my moms “kid friendly dinners.” I know what kind of flavor profiles kiddos like – bring on the cheesy, pizza goodness and leave that spicy, BOLD curry goodness BEHIND, you know?
Many of the recipes in this kid friendly meals plan are also ones that I’ve received reviews from readers who have made them for their family with great results! So, they’ve been tested on a “child-like” husband and REAL FAMILIES. Who liked them. No complaining about “too much healthiness.”
I’ve got a couple options for breakfasts, lunches, dinners and even snacks and desserts! If you want all the recipes in one place, without having to open all the blog posts to grab them, there’s a printable PDF at the bottom of this post!
So, enjoy the kid friendly meals plan and get that family on board with healthy eating!
