Healthy & Family Friendly Recipes

Now that we have a baby I’ve found I have less time to prepare deliciously healthy meals. We typically try to eat vegetarian meals and meals with meat 1-2 times a week. I’ve been on the lookout for healthy meals that taste good and don’t take a lot of prep work. Although we feed our baby some purees, I’m excited about giving her more and more table food. It was my goal to find recipes that are healthy, don’t take a lot of time to prepare, and kid friendly. I hope you enjoy this round-up of my favorite family friendly recipes!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Stacy-Ann! I think it’s somewhat normal for younger children not to LOVE veggies. If you put shredded lettuce in her taco will she eat it? I’ve also heard of adding portabella mushrooms while cooking the ground meat. With all the seasoning you can’t even taste the difference and it adds some veggies to the meal.
