Quick and Easy Meals for Kids

Anyone else have those days where it gets so busy that dinnertime creeps up faster than you know it? Or, do you have a kid that gets home from school right at lunch time, ready to eat and hangry for their food?

As a busy mom, I have those days ALL THE TIME.

To make those busy days even more challenging, my oldest daughter is extremely picky. There’s only a handful of things she likes right now, which makes mealtime that much more difficult for me.

QUICK AND EASY OPTIONS

I’ve learned that it saves so much stress to have something quick and easy on hand for those busy days. That’s why I love having a couple bags of McCain® Quick Cook Fries in the freezer. I like that there’s no flipping required and they cook in half the time* compared to McCain’s traditional fries.

Figuring out what to make her for lunch and dinner can be tough. Having a picky eater can be a real struggle. Some days, it feels like such a battle over food, but not when I serve some delicious fries as a side. I love that it puts a smile on her face and it’s even helped her try some new food, knowing there’s something else she loves on the plate.

I know I’m not the only Mom that struggles with picky eaters or days where there’s no time to cook. That’s why I wanted to share a few easy meal options that both my girls genuinely love. I hope this gives you an idea for what to make on one of your busy days!
