Finding family-friendly meals that don’t break the bank and are easy to put together can sometimes be a pain, but don’t fear! Those kinds of meals do exist! I know it’s also easy to get into a rut and make the same things over and over again. That’s one reason I love the internet- it’s an endless source of good ideas for meals. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite family-friendly meals- all approved by kids!
You’ll notice that many of these aren’t your standard chicken-nuggets-mac-and-cheese fare. We believe that introducing our kids to lots of flavors early on leads to non-picky eaters. Our older kids, especially, will eat just about anything, ranging from beef stew to fried rice. Try something new with your kids- you might be surprised!
