It happens every week. You get home from a long day of work and the kids begin to ask when dinner will be ready. While you stand there and think about which healthy meal you will prepare for your picky toddler (who will most likely not eat it), you can’t help but wish to have your own personal chef. Having a personal chef is a long shot, but Life Sports Fitness knows a great deal about picky eaters. Because of this, we have formulated different healthy kid-friendly recipes that can turn any picky eater into an eating machine.
Spaghetti & Meatballs
Turn this classic kid-friendly meal into a healthy bite by simply using our healthy kid-friendly recipes. Stretch the ground beef with high-fiber bulgur, and add whole wheat breadcrumbs into the meatballs. In order to go the extra step, baking the meatballs instead of frying them, and substitute in whole wheat pasta.
Almond Crusted Chicken Fingers
Instead of coating the chicken in bread crumbs or other batters, coat them with almond and whole wheat flour and then oven-fry them. Life Sports Fitness can guarantee that with half the standard fat of breaded chicken tenders, you kids will enjoy this healthy kid-friendly recipe.
No-Bake Mac & Cheese
Not only is this ultra-creamy version of mac-and-cheese nearly as fast as the boxed variety, but your family will be able to pronounce every ingredient. If they aren’t broccoli fans, substitute a frozen vegetable of your choice.
Black Bean Quesadilla
In a hurry? These satisfying quesadillas take just 15 minutes to make. Life Sports Fitness likes them with black beans, but pinto beans work well too. That’s the beauty of using healthy kid-friendly recipes – there are always plenty of options. For those who like a little heat, use pepper jack cheese in the filling. Serve with a little sour cream and a mixed green salad – voila!
These healthy kid-friendly recipes are easy to make and satisfy that picky palette your child may have. At Life Sports Fitness, we encourage a healthy lifestyle and eating healthy is the first major step.
