Top 3 Most Kid-Friendly Meals

Being a mom can be rather challenging, especially when it comes to creating the best meal plan. There is plenty of information available only, and many debate on what to feed children or not. Hence, you might feel like there is no in-between solution, while your child might seem to avoid any healthy food or snack you might serve. Anyway, if you are like me, you won’t abandon this task! This is why I do encourage you to keep reading this article. Up next, I shared my top three kid-friendly meals that my twins loved! And the best part about those recipes is that they are both nutritious and tasty. Let’s see how you can pamper your kids with new, interesting recipes.

Chia Pudding Parfait

Well, kids are always in for something sweet. And why not give them something tasty and nutritious? I wasn’t sure my twins would go for this chia pudding parfait, but to my surprise, they loved it. Besides, the chia seeds are rich in protein, good carbs, and a wide array of nutrients. I do recommend using this recipe for breakfast. It will keep your kids full and extremely happy they have something similar to a dessert first thing in the morning.

I used the following chia pudding parfait recipe:

1 (13.5 oz.) can full-fat coconut milk (such as Thrive Market)

⅓ cup chia seeds

1 tsp. vanilla extract (such as Simply Organic)

1 Tbsp. organic maple syrup (optional for sweetness)

I mixed all the ingredients in a blender and poured it in a glass container for storing it over the night.

Afterward, I layered the pudding-like this: one layer of chia pudding, one layer of raspberries, one layer of granola, and repeated with an additional second layer.

Eat the rainbow

If you are having a hard time making your child eat his vegetables, this recipe might help you. Eat the rainbow is a simple and nutritious kid-friendly meal, in which you can add several vegetables. I prefer starting with a chili con carne recipe and add carrots, celery, red peppers, tomatoes, kidney beans, and kale.

I used the following recipe for this:

2 tsp sunflower oil

1 large red onion, chopped

2 carrots, finely chopped

2 sticks celery or 2 courgettes, finely chopped

1-2 cloves garlic, crushed

2 fresh red chilies, seeded (if desired) and finely chopped

350g (12oz) extra lean minced beef (5% fat)

1 tsp each hot chili powder, ground cumin, and ground coriander

2 tsp tomato purée

1 1/2 tsp dark soft brown sugar

400g (14oz) can chopped tomatoes

250ml (9fl oz) homemade vegetable stock

400g (14oz) can red kidney beans in water, rinsed and drained

Chopped fresh coriander, to garnish (optional)

I cooked all the vegetables in the oil for around ten minutes, afterward, I added the beef and followed with the rest of the ingredients. I allowed the composition to cook for half an hour gently and everything was ready for serving.


If your kids watched the famous Pixar movie, you have an advantage with this recipe. Ratatouille is a funny-looking kid-friendly meal that will make every child eat his legumes. And you can even encourage your kids to join you to cook together this dish.

I used the following recipe for this:

2 medium eggplant, diced into 1/2″ pieces

kosher salt

2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided

Freshly ground black pepper

1 large onion, chopped

2 bell peppers, cut into 1/4″ spears

1 bay leaf

1 tbsp. tomato paste

1/2 c. dry white wine

2 zucchinis, sliced into 1/4 ” coins

3 cloves garlic

2 c. halved cherry tomatoes

1 tsp. dried oregano

pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

fresh basil

I basically cut all the ingredients, add them in a large man, season accordingly to our taste, and place the composition in the oven. Let it bake for around 40 minutes, and you are ready to enjoy a tasty meal with your kids.
