Struggling to find easy meals your kids will eat? Here’s a great list of quick and easy recipes, made especially for picky eaters!
When I was a new mom, and my daughter was just starting to eat solids, I spent a lot of time patting myself on the back for raising such a good eater. “She eats everything!” I bragged. Then she turned 3. And now? Picky eaters ain’t got nothing on this kid.
With her, it’s a lot more about controlling what she eats instead of telling me what she doesn’t like – this is a typical toddler/preschooler thing, and in most cases, I just roll with it. But that doesn’t mean we get to escape the same mealtime struggles that others with picky eaters get to experience!
So I sat down and began compiling a list of tasty, quick, and easy recipes that I thought she would happily dig into. I have zero time or patience for cutting sandwiches into butterflies or whatever other super-cute ideas you see on Pinterest, but I am always down for cooking a recipe that doesn’t take too long and tastes delicious.
And now you get to reap the benefits of my searching!
