Let’s Eat!!! Fun Mealtime Ideas to Inspire the kid in all of Us

November 7, 2011, Parenting Success Network

Are you tired of the same mealtime ideas? Are you looking for something new, healthy, and kid-friendly to serve your family for dinner? Are you interested in quick and easy dinner ideas for hectic weekday evenings?

As we progress through the year we sometimes find ourselves looking for new, interesting, and nutritious items to serve our families. Well, look no further because OSU Extension Services has a wonderful list of kid-friendly mealtime ideas on their website. Some of the items include Chicken Black Bean Salsa Burritos, Easy Skillet Chili, Oven French Toast, Sunshine Roll-Ups, and my personal favorite during these rainy months, Skillet Corn Chowder. Each recipe is in English and Spanish and includes nutrition facts, tips, and fun modifications called “Bright Ideas”.

Check out the recipes and be prepared to salivate. If you try one, please let me know what you and your family think. And don’t forget to get the kids involved in grocery shopping,  meal planning, and meal preparation. Children truly enjoy the cooking experience and more importantly, they enjoy the time spent with you in the kitchen.

Bon Appetit!!
