Kids can be picky eaters. They don’t always want to eat what is healthy and will often play with their food to try and make it fun. Here are some food ideas that your kids will surely love and make mealtime easy.
Fun And Flavorful Breakfasts
Breakfast is one of the most important meals for the day. Oftentimes, kids just want some sugary cereal, but the problem with that is that it doesn’t always have the nutrients you need. Oatmeal on the other hand is great food with many benefits, with oatmeal being the biggest healthy attribute. However, the trouble with oatmeal is that it doesn’t often appeal to kids. However, the great thing about oatmeal is that you can serve and eat it with all sorts of stuff, fruits, and nuts being perfect additions. In order to appeal to kids, add some sweet fruits like berries and apples. These will make them naturally tasty, and colorful, which should appeal to kids, making breakfast a healthier and enjoyable experience for everyone.
Egg In A Nest
Another fun breakfast meal is egg in a nest. This is known for many names such as egg in a basket or egg in a hole, but all made the same. It is done simply by cutting a hold in the middle of a piece of bread and frying it on a pan while you break open an egg in the middle. You can also fry the circular piece of bread and you have a biscuit to go along with your egg meal. This different take on eggs and toast is visually appealing and great for kids to have a bit of fun while eating or even helping cook in the kitchen.
Pancakes are fun but over time can get a little boring. For kids, a fun way to change up their dish is with some creativity. Using different molds, you can reshape your pancakes from the traditional circular ones to fun shapes like teddy bears. Additionally, consider adding all sorts of fruits like strawberries, or sweets like powdered sugar, chocolate, or whipped cream for some sweeter alternatives.
If you are looking for something sweet, cinnamon rolls are a great snack or dessert that is an alternate bakery good that is different from donuts or cakes your kids might have eaten before. These tasty Instant Pot cinnamon rolls are simple to make but just as tasty as anything you would get at a large commercial bakery. Adding this to your recipe book will have you snacking all day long, from dessert to breakfast, and sneaking into the kitchen for a midnight snack.
Kids love eating with their hands. Because of that, tacos are a great colorful food to get your children excited about mealtime. And since you are the one assembling each taco with unique ingredients, your kids can make ones how they prefer, if that means more cheese or more vegetables. Just be sure to set plenty of time aside to both prepare and clean up.
If you can make eating fun, your kids will be less likely to make a fuss over it. They will look forward to eating the food you prepare. This will make your parenting that much easier over the long run.
