Struggling to find easy recipes your picky kids will eat? Here’s a great list of kid-approved recipes and meals, that picky toddlers and kids will actually LOVE.

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, I know.

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.

So now you get to reap the benefits of my searching!

Here’s my definitive (for now!) list of 13 Quick and Easy Recipes for Kids- especially picky eaters!
