Whenever I write a post about kids, kid-friendly recipes, after school snacks…well I feel like a bit of a fraud. I don’t have kids, I don’t know what it’s like to have kids, and I definitely don’t know what it’s like to feed kids. But I have one hell of an imagination so I’m good at playing pretend, thinking up what I might feed my children if I had them. I’d love to believe that I could feed them leftover salmon, kale, and some sort of salad fixin’s each day when they got home from school, but based on how I was as a child and my love for cheese fries and oatmeal cream pies, it may not go that way. It’s hard to say. From what I’ve seen, you really never know what you’re going to get when you have a child. It may be a carrot eater, it may be a cake eater. I hope my child loves both, just like me.
Did I seriously just make that entire paragraph about my theoretical children? I’m exhausting. This is about you and YOUR children. Your children that need to be fed. I have no idea if this post will help you, but I hope it does! I put together some delicious breakfasts I think kids will like, some of my favorite easy and kid-approved (via instagram) lunches and dinners, and then some snacks (sweet and savory) that will keep that full and happy. Let me know if your kids try any of these recipes and if they like them! If not, tell them to grow up and expand their palate. Are you allowed to say that sort of thing to children? Again, don’t have any and still working on that skill of how to talk to them. It’s a work in progress. Enjoy!
