I get asked a lot what the kids eat because not all my recipes are child-friendly. This blog has all the meals I regularly make for the kids and why it’s easier to make two meals sometimes.
This kid-friendly Bolognese sauce has lots of nutrition without Henry being able to spot that it has veggies in it. I make it in batches to save myself time the following weeks.
I make these simple burgers for the kids once a week and have the whole process down to a fine art. No waste and no remembering to buy buns. They’re a firm favourite with the kids.
Chilli Con Carne is a tasty, filling and nutritious family meal that can be serve with rice, taco chips or bread. This kid-friendly version makes it smoother and less spicy but still delicious.
Based on the tinned sausages and beans this version has less salt and sugar and is more substantial. The children love rolling the meatballs for this easy kid’s tea.
Crunchy Chicken Wraps are a perfect trilogy of hot chicken, cold lettuce and soft tortilla. Adults and the kids get to chose their own extra flavours to make their favourite wrap.
Grated Potato Pancakes are one of my quick side dishes that I rely on in the week when time or patience is short.
There is so much to love about these mixer bowls. Everyone can choose their own colourful ingredients and they’re full of nutrition. You have most of the ingredients in your cupboards and fridge.
Irish Boxty is a tremendous breakfast dish to serve with eggs. It is filling and tasty and is a great way to use up any leftover mash you might have.
Sweet potato fries are a fantastic side dish that can get a whack of fibre and vitamin C into the kids. This recipe includes tips on keeping the fries crispy, not soggy.
