As easy as slapping some tuna together on some bread, get your kid used to consuming veggies along with it.
Our tuna salad recipe starts with celery, onion, tuna, mayonnaise, capers, parsely, mustard, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Combine all these ingredients in a mixing bowl, making sure there are no clumps and is evenly mixed. Spread evenly on whole wheat bread and season with salt, pepper, or lemon juice.
Chicken Meatball Sliders
What’s not to love with cheese, chicken, and meatballs. Especially with being on the go, your kid is going to love this ballpark sub!
To start you’re going to heat a quarter cup of olive oil in a medium pan, while adding 1 finely chopped onion, 2 finely chopped garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon of light sugar, 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar, and 1 finely chopped bay leaf while slowly bringing it to a simmer. Finally, add in freshly cooked meatballs. Serve on a whole wheat sub roll, and sprinkle in a pinch of organic mozzarella cheese.
Nothing else can make your kid’s friends jealous at school than a freshly made Pepperoni Panzanella! And nothing to help tame your kid’s stomach monster than a touch of Italy’s finest.
You’re going to need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees, add a couple of pieces of bread on a cookie sheet and toast until golden brown. This should take 10-12 minutes. Next, take the bread and add 4 tomato wedges, a small handful of organic mozzarella cheese, 2-3 pepperoni pieces, a pinch of basil, 1 peppadew pepper, and a pinch of parsley, red vine vinegar, and olive oil. Lastly, season with some salt and pepper!
With tomato, black peppers, pita, and chicken what better meal to serve than Chicken Souvlaki. Even if you have a picky kid that takes the chicken out and that’s it the key is getting him used to seeing a variety of greens in his meal.
To prepare for this meal is easy just toss together chicken, chopped cucumbers, finely chopped tomatoes, a pinch of olive oil and lemon juice. And finally season with kosher salt and black pepper. Put this inside some pocketless pita and top with feta and herbs.
Teaching your kid to eat healthy isn’t always easy. But neither is being a parent and the responsibility of having your kid grow up big and strong is yours. So next time you make his meal try out these great meals or start small and put a couple greens in his sandwich. No matter what face he gives you now, he’ll thank you later.
