Kid-Friendly

Discover thousands of kid-friendly recipes for memorable meals on Yummly! Whether you want the kids to try something new, you have picky eaters, or they want to try their hand in the kitchen, you can find the right recipes here…

Quick & Easy Kid-Friendly Recipes

Get-up-and-go is easy with a tasty incentive. For an easy make-ahead breakfast, you can find simple recipes like cinnamon vanilla breakfast protein bites. Not only are they delicious, but they're also no-bake, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly. And for lunch, grown-ups know that sending off kids with a sandwich and an apple in their lunch box isn't going to cut it, so we have to get creative. You can mix it up with macaroni and cheese lunch muffins or pepperoni pizza cups for something delicious and filling for them and easy for you.

Kid-Friendly Dinner Recipes

Coming up with ideas beyond chicken fingers and hot dogs can be a challenge, especially when you're feeding picky eaters. Sometimes, finding the right recipe is about how it's packaged. Tucking healthy food into a pie is always a tempting option -- a good chicken pot pie or shepherd's pie topped with mashed potatoes might be the recipes to add to your arsenal. For other kids, a good pasta salad works, too. It's good for sneaking in vegetables like cabbage and zucchini. But if you're looking for a warm pasta recipe, alfredo sauce can turn broccoli and chicken into a healthy recipe for school-age children. Hearty soup, turkey chili, and sloppy joes are also excellent kid-friendly meals that you can make in a slow cooker for easy weeknight meals.

Cooking with Kids

Cooking with kids is not only fun, but it may be an opportunity to get them to eat healthy meals as well. Chicken and pesto naan pizzas are easy for kids to assemble with kid-friendly flavors, but you can make them into cheese pizzas if they want something closer to the traditional Italian fare. If you want to introduce them to simple Asian food, you can try fried rice -- it's a fun way to use leftover cooked pork, chicken, or beef and you don't have to worry about the kids handling raw meat.

What every cooking challenges you face feeding your kids, Yummly has the solution! From meatballs to egg noodles, we have thousands of recipes to please every member of the family.
