7 Plant Based Recipes your KIDS will love!

kid friendly2.jpg

Most kids are picky eaters! From what I noticed, kids seem to eat the same foods over and over and parents feed it to them because it will assure that their child will eat. I get it. But the only way the kids knows he/she likes that food is by trying it. So you have to make something new and, who knows, maybe that would be your child’s new favorite food!

Another thing, some parents are switching to plant-based diets and, either, make separate meals for their kids or make their kids eat plant-based also. This can be hard on a child who was raised eating meat because they will miss their favorite foods. So you have to recreate them! Below are a 7 Plant Based Recipes that are healthy, yummy and, I believe, are kid-friendly because they are familiar to what kids generally love to eat. Why 7? Lucky 7, of course!

NOTE: All of these recipes are definitely family friendly!

Super EASY Stove Top Mac & [Cashew] Cheese, need I say more? Probably not but I am! I haven’t met a kid who didn’t love mac and cheese.  This creamy mac and cheese will fool a cheese lover. If you child is lactose intolerant, that is another reason to try this recipe!

2.Lazy Girl Chickn Sandwich

However for most people, transitioning from a meat diet to a plant based diet is difficult and is, therefore necessary. Just add their favorite sandwich toppings and condiments for a sure hit!
