Here are some clean eating for kids recipes. I have plenty to choose from for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks and YOUR kids will love eating them. If your family is on a Clean Eating diet, it can be difficult to find recipes that children can and will eat. I hope this list is useful to you and your family.
I also have links to other recipes that I think kids like, at least mine do, that I think will be helpful to you. One way I get my children to eat foods they wouldn’t normally eat is to give them healthy options when they are hungry.
For example, when they are starving and you’re making dinner and you may be tempted to say they shouldn’t eat anything before dinner. Tell them the only thing they can have before dinner is vegetables. When I do that, if my kids are hungry enough, they chow down on mini carrots and snap peas. No forcing required.
I have found that kids prefer foods that are simple, not spicy or hard to chew. My kids really like finger foods – maybe because they are easier to eat and they don’t have to use a fork or spoon.
I know kids that don’t like anything mixed together like a casserole. If I serve them the main ingredients of the casserole separately they will eat them just fine. That way they can eat the ingredients we are having but in a kid-friendly way.
That’s why I tried to find recipes like that, that your kids will love too. Of course, kids always want sweets but if the sweets are real food and don’t have too much unhealthy sugar in them, I say why not?
That’s why Clean sweets are better than others because the sugar in Clean Eating recipes is unprocessed. Some of these recipes use fruit in place of sugar, now that’s a win-win situation for us as parents and the kids. I love most of these too.
My kid’s favorites listed here are for pizza, cookies and ice cream. My daughter’s most favorite is taco soup. They are all wonderful, taste great and are actually healthy and avoid processed foods. Go ahead give them all a try.
I hope you enjoy these and I hope you can find several that become your favorites and hopefully even avoid a night of eating at a fast-food restaurant.
