Dinner doesn’t have to be a battle. You can’t go wrong with the recipes on this list! Even the kids will love dinner. Say goodbye to making multiple meals a night!
I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time making a meal only to learn that my kids hate it before they’ve tried it. Amiright? Here’s an example:
CHILD: Mom, what are we having for dinner?
ME: Potato soup.
CHILD: I don’t like potato soup.
ME: You’ve never tried potato soup.
CHILD: I still don’t like it.
It’s a battle some nights, that’s for sure! On a lot of occasions I end up pulling frozen chicken nuggets to throw in the microwave for these picky eaters. I can tell you right now that picky eaters across the nation have tried these recipes and they’re tried-and-true kid friendly. My kids love all the ones that are mine (they say “from Cupcake Diaries” after the recipe name) and they’re ages 6, 3, and 19 months. I’m telling you, this is the list for kid-friendly recipes!
