It can be hard to get toddlers and even older kids to eat their veggies. Get creative! Finely dice celery and cucumber to stir into tuna salad sandwich filling. The kids won’t eat lettuce? Leave it off their sandwiches, but put it on yours.
Hidden Veggie Tuna Sammies
This classic Italian dish takes very little time to prepare. It’s kid-friendly, too, with no obvious vegetables to pick out at the table.
Sunshine Hot Cakes
Kids love hand-held foods they can dip. These little hot cakes fit the bill, and are packed with veggies too.
In spring, a young child’s mind turns to chocolate and bunnies. Here’s a sweet, child-friendly dessert kids will love, at Easter especially.
Dirt and Worms Ice Cream Brownie Cake
Gummy worms “crawl” out of this disgustingly delicious dirt cake. Great as a birthday cake or for any other kids’ celebration.
Pigs in Puffy Blankets
Kids love finger foods you can dunk into dipping sauces. This one combines two kid favourites- hot dogs and ketchup. They can even help you make these.
Easy Blueberry Danish
Dad and the kids can make this short-cut Danish together while Mom sleeps in!
Our flame-broiled lean Italian Meatballs are fully cooked, and are great in place of the usual ground beef in taco shells. Let the kids assemble their own. Go ahead- it’s supposed to be messy!
