Healthy Easy Meals For Kids and Blogs I Love

This blog is not about judging anyone, or telling anyone what to do.  This is simply about offering some guidance to anyone who might want some.  I looked for help when I started cooking, and I had no idea what I was doing.  And had no idea how I would have the time, and at the time, money to cook healthy meals.

Cooking healthy seemed like a daunting task, but after helpful blogs and research I found that it can be simple!  Especially for kids, they don't generally like fancy meals.  

These are just some examples of meals I've served my kids.  And I find they eat the best when things are basic and simple.  Like applesauce, peas, carrot sticks, cucumbers, brown rice with vegan butter and maybe a little cheese.  

It doesn't have to be hard or complicated.  I love cooking a crazy meal if I have time.  But, even as a stay at home mom, I don't always have time.  In fact, I rarely have time.  So, in my craziness, I've found simple is best for the kids.  Sometimes my four year old won't eat things mixed together, or cooked vegetables.

So, again this is just to maybe help someone who is trying to feed kids or anyone healthy and affordable meals.

Frozen veggies are cheap!  And if your kids are hungry they will eat them.  You know what isn't cheap?  Chips, fruit bars, and other processed snacks.  Sometimes I buy that stuff too, I mean hello convenience.  But, the best kind of snacks are natural; apples with raw almond butter, veggies with hummus.  I've heard people say they don't want to give their kids too much fruit because of the sugar, which is fine, but I would rather give them lots of fruit over anything processed.

There are great sources of protein in things like broccoli, peas, legumes, and even complete protein in quinoa if you're worried about it.

And if anyone has questions or needs guidance, I would love to help!  I'm no expert, but am happy to pass on any information I've learned so far.

Do my kids eat perfect every time, no.  Do they sometimes not even try something I've worked so hard on, yes.  Will that stop from giving it to them again, no!

Want any further information or help? Leave me a comment, and let me know!
