Five Recipes to Cook and Enjoy with Kids

Cooking with kids can be chaotic and messy. Still, it’s rewarding to pour effort into something the whole family can enjoy. Here are five fun meal ideas that both parents and kids will love to make and eat!

Kabobs

Provided that children are old enough not to poke themselves with the sticks, kabobs of any sort are fun to create and cook as necessary. There is no right or wrong way to assemble them, so kids can use their imaginations, and parents can encourage kids to try new foods by combining them on kabobs with beloved mainstays.

Meat kabobs can include a variety of meat and seafood ingredients or just one protein.

Fruit kabobs dipped in yogurt are a healthy, no-cook alternative.

English Muffin Pizzas

English muffin pizzas are super simple to create and a great way to give children more hands-on experience in the kitchen. Sauces, cheeses, meats, and vegetables are the condiments added to customize them. Pop them in the toaster oven for ten minutes, and enjoy some tasty homemade personal pizzas!

Appetizer Platter

Children love to snack. There’s just something about bite-sized foods that makes their stomachs growl. To accommodate this, you can set out a large cutting board with a variety of healthy appetizer bites for kids to choose from. Place this on a low table in the playroom to make it just for the kids, since the adults will be enjoying some wine, cheese, and crackers. Foods to include on the kid board are seedless red grapes, apple slices, baby carrots, mildly flavored cheese cubes, mini pepperoni rounds, and oat bran pretzel twists. Homemade ranch dressing is a perfect dip that most kids will enjoy, so be sure to offer up some of that as well!
