5 Things We Love Friday- Kid Friendly Food

We have a picky eater in our family. Some days it can be incredibly frustrating!

The one thing I’ve found, if he contributes to making his food he’s more likely to eat it! These five recipes are kid friendly and we think worth giving a shot with your little one.

You know your own child so of course only do what you feel is appropriate. My little ones don’t get sharp things and any mixing on the stove is VERY supervised. But man do they love pouring and mixing!

On to the food!

Fried Apples by Decorated Chaos

We went apple picking last season. It was such a great time! I’m excited to take the kids again this year! And what better thing to do than spice the apples when we’re done. Kids can pour in spices, and depending on your comfort level mix them up.

Fish Lunch by Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons

I’ve seen a number of those really cute looking lunches. Every animal under the sun! The benefit to this one? No special cutters or special order food accessories needed. We’re really into fish right now, so we’re going to try this!

Fun Size Pizzas by Forgetful Momma

Let kids top their own pizzas! I like that these are the perfect size for little hands. I haven’t used my bread machine for pizza dough yet- I may have to give that a try.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana by What’s Cooking, Love

How big of a mess are you up for? You can let your little peeps dip your banana bites in your chocolate mix if you are prepared for chocolate covered kids too. They would love it I’m sure!

Want to keep the mess down a little? Let them throw on some sprinkles or chopped nuts.

Homemade Fruit Popsicle by Path to Wellness

Chop up your fruit and let your little one make a custom Popsicle! What a great way to get your fruit. You can tailor it to your child’s preferences.

    These are great, and I agree the kids do seem to try more foods if they get to participate.

      I think it is a nice way to help them feel a little bit more in control of their corner of the world! And if we can sneak a couple healthy bites of something in great!
