21 Healthy Kids Food Ideas for Picky Eaters
Do you find yourself at a loss to find healthy meals kids love? I’ve been there!
If you’re anything like me then you’ve spent countless hours on Pinterest searching things like “healthy snacks for kids” or “healthy toddler meals”. My girls were (and still a lot of times are) two of the pickiest eaters I’ve ever encountered. They never met a bowl of macaroni and cheese they did not like. But getting veggies in them was a struggle. I’ve tried a lot of hidden veggie recipes for kids and some have worked for sure! I know finding a healthy food list for kids can be a challenge so this roundup is going to provide you with some help!
But before we get to the recipes, here is a great resource if you are hoping to curb picky eaters in your house. One of the things that worked best for our family was separating food! My girls both have texture issues so even separating fruit from fruit salad made it more palatable.
Here is a great roundup from around the web of some healthy kids meals for picky eaters!
