One of the most frequently asked questions I get is do your kids eat what you eat? and what do you feed your kids? Both of my kids are hit or miss eaters. Sometimes they eat great and shock me and sometimes they are super picky.
As much as I would like us to all sit down to dinner together as a family every night it just isn’t possible with Matt’s work schedule. I feed Frances around 5:30 so she always eats before we do. I would say about 2-3 nights a week Sterling eats with Matt and I but most of the time he is ready to eat at 5:30 when Frances does.
The past two weeks I tried to photograph their food. Weekends we order pizza or eat out so these are mainly week night meals. Lately Sterling wants to eat on a divided plate too since Frances does so I just feed him the same thing. Frances is all about using a spoon these days which is great because I feel like she is trying more foods, like quinoa that she can scoop up. I am not telling you my kids cleaned their plates but this what I served them:) If it was a recipe of mine I linked to it.
String cheese | strawberries | quinoa | roasted cabbage | hummus and pita
shredded carrots | Peas | cheese | cantaloupe | yogurt
roasted shrimp | Asian slaw | greek yogurt | blueberries | avocado
watermelon | quinoa | chicken meatballs | cheese | avocado
taco chicken | avocado| roasted white beans | cheese | apples
rotisserie chicken| mandarin oranges | edamame | avocado | boiled egg
I try not to feed my kids too much frozen food but sometimes you have to. I really like the Kidfresh brand. My kids like their fish sticks, chicken nuggets, and chicken meatballs. They also do mac and cheese but neither of my kids love mac and cheese which blows my mind.
Other frozen foods we like are the puff pastry dogs from Trader Joes, Morning Star veggie burgers, and Dr Praeger Spinach nuggets.
The divided plates above are from skip hop and they are our favorites.
If you have any meals your kids love, I would love the recommendations!
