"My littlest guy loves the granola recipes on his yogurt. TCL chocolate chip cookies and muffins are always a hit."
Pancakes are always a go-to family-friendly meal. They can also be made in advance, and reheated in the toaster or toaster oven.
"Just started introducing solids with my 8 month old, and he throws less of the sweet potato pancakes (minus the maple syrup) on the floor" - Kristy
Kid-friendly and adult-friendly too!
"My youngest loves the ‘pesto pizza’. It is in weekly rotation at our house." - Susan M.
"For soups and stews, I just make sure to chop things chunky enough for my little to grasp, and serve the broth separately from the solid ingredients." - LeChing V.
"I often make deconstructed versions of the meals when I plate my boys' dinners (they hate things mixing). Generally the "finger foods" are a winner with my boys, but I try to expose them to a variety of foods so that they learn to like it. Had a mom win this weekend where both boys finally ate stew and discovered they like it!" - Kristin E.
"I have a very picky toddler and have most success with slow cooked soups (chicken noodle was a hit) and bolognese/turkey meatballs (+they are easy to make which is a huge bonus in a busy household)."
Remember our Pulled Chicken & Pesto Wraps? Add the chicken to the food processor with your pesto for an ultra creamy spread. Roll it up in brown rice tortillas and slice into kid-friendly pinwheels!
