Cook the Kids' Meal at Home
Save money and feel good about mealtime by preparing some favorite dishes from typical kids’ restaurant menus and prepare them at home.
We offer two options for each dish. The first is a more traditional presentation your kids will be familiar with. And second is for older kids, or those who are bolder and braver in their culinary repertoire. If you have a picky eater on your hands, start with the traditional version and then try to broaden their palettes with a new twist on a classic. Your children are never too young to start exploring new flavors and textures.
Our recipe calls for a spicy dipping sauce made with mayo, hot chile sauce, lime juice, and soy. Try reducing or eliminating the hot sauce for kids, or feel free to serve with ketchup or homemade honey mustard by combining ¼ cup honey with ¼ cup mustard.
This isn’t such a stretch from traditional mac and cheese, but the addition of green peas is a great way to get some veggies into mealtime. A few slices of bacon add smoky richness, but feel free to omit it if you want to keep this a meatless dish.
