Cauliflower Two Ways
Cauliflower rice is all the rage these days as a simple, low-carb rice replacement. But let’s be honest, you’re not fooling kids with this one. To make this veggie work for both you and the little ones, use your “rice” as a healthy side, and transform the rest into fun and tasty cauliflower nuggets.
Pro Tip: This is one of several ways you can sneak more veggies into your kids’ diets.
Deconstructed Chicken Salad
There’s just something so simple and tasty about a classic chicken salad for lunch. It’s also a great basic recipe that can be made more sophisticated with fresh herbs and zesty mayo, or cut up into more kid-friendly bite-size pieces of chicken, with grapes and creamy dipping sauce on the side.
Pro Tip: For younger children, shred the chicken and cut the grapes into small bites.
Say Mac ‘N Cheese!
1. Take prepared mac ‘n cheese and add one egg yolk, and mix it together. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin, scoop and fill each cup with the mac ‘n cheese.
2. Bake the cups at 400°F for 10-15 minutes, until the edges brown.
3. These bites keep well in the freezer, so prepare a big batch and store them in individual Ziploc® brand bags in the freezer. Simply thaw in fridge and reheat in the morning.
- Kids like finger-foods, so if you can make them something they can eat with their hands, they’ll eat it.
- Try cutting their foods into shapes using various cookie cutters. Have some fun!
- For your meals, think fast and flavorful add-ins/mix-ins.
- Kick your version up a notch with hot sauce.
