Healthy, Kid-Approved Dinners That Anyone Can Make
So you're searching the net for inspiration and a link promises you Simple recipes that Kids will Love.

You follow the link. You navigate the minefield of adverts and pop ups. You finally get to the post only to be greeted by a granola this, okra that and caramelised whatever.

I mean seriously!? My kid freaks out if some of my mushrooms leak onto his half of his plain cheese pizza...I thought these were meant to be things kids actually want to eat. As for caramelised...I barely have time to pee in peace, let alone caramelise something (unless that's 'mumese' for burnt)

Never fear, the following ideas are genuinely simple and guaranteed to leave you with clean plates. Relax, we've got this!

Fish pizza

Pizza is always a winner in every house, as are fish fingers. This recipe takes the healthy benefits of fish and slaps a tasty pizza style topping on top!

Sneaky veg nuggets

We can't provide the Happy Meal Toy but we can give you a simple recipe for chicken nuggets they even helps you sneak some vegetables in!

These really simple nuggets look delicious for adults and kids alike and are so simple to whizz up in a good processor. Now if only we could get a McFlurry on the side....

All wrapped up

Wraps are such a simple, quick meal, however if you're buying the branded meal kits they can work out expensive and often too spicey for little taste buds.

This site has loads of both sweet and savoury ideas but the chicken and cheese spread and the egg wraps look like definite winners to me.

Mammas meatbaLls

BBC GOOD FOOD has a wealth of recipes to choose from but for me this has got to be one of the best for kiddies.

Tasty meatballs in a hidden veg sauce, which takes just 15 minutes prep time according to the recipe. For days when you really want a quick fix, I'd be tempted to buy ready made meatballs and just make the sauce.

Perfect for a night in front of the TV watching Disney's Lady and the Tramp!

Good ole mac n cheese

Mac n Cheese may sound obvious but it's not to be overlooked. I love this super, simple recipe that has just three ingredients. It's ideal for those nights when you just can't face cooking.

What's great about this site is they give you some variations to try as well such as a low fat version, bacon and leek, or simply throwing some frozen peas in the mix.
