8 YUMMY Winter Recipes The Kids Will LOVE!

8 YUMMY Winter Recipes The Kids Will LOVE!

1. Slow Cooked Porcupine Meatballs

Slow Cooked Porcupine Meatballs

Many small children find meat difficult to eat, especially when it comes to chewing. Meatballs are a perfect and budget friendly way to get your kids to eat meat and get their intake of iron. Bite sized pieces are best. Just let them get messy.

See meatballs recipe here.

2. Healthy Quiche Taco Boats


If you’re looking for a healthy recipe that’s ideal for the whole family (including the toddler), look no further than the quiche taco boat.

While your standard quiche is made in a larger sized dish, these use stand and stuff taco boats. This means they’re perfect for both portion control and for little people’s appetites – and even more perfect if you are trying to lose weight.

4. Kid Friendly Mexican Chicken Nachos

Easy Chicken Nachos

For a fun Mexican style dinner that’s sure to tempt even the fussiest of eaters, try these Easy Chicken Nachos.

Feel free to amend the recipe to suit your family’s tastes. Switch the kidney beans for chickpeas, leave out the chicken and add leftover roast beef or lamb instead (or make it vegetarian), and even add some chilli if you like a bit of heat.
