Five Kid-Friendly, Clean-Eating Dinners

Kids. They are the most wonderful beings and at the same time can make you want to run for the hills and hide. The last scenario being most appropriate (at least in my house) during the dreaded “dinner hour.”

It can be unbelievably tricky to make a dinner that both hits the kids criteria; i.e. dairy, carbs or ideally both, followed closely by a plate of cookies AND that doesn’t make the adults eating feel like they just time warped back to their childhood. And God help you, if you have a toddler in your house because then all bets are off the table! On Monday mac and cheese is the sole reason for their existence, and by Wednesday you couldn’t bribe them with their favorite treat to eat it.

But have no fear! Below I have compiled 5 of Saucy Green Living’s most popular “kid-friendly” dinner dishes for Spinning Plates. Saucy Green Living is a food blog dedicated to gluten-free and dairy-free cooking. But if you are not, feel free to add back all the dairy and gluten your heart desires. Or better yet, make it as is and see if your family can tell the difference. I bet you they won’t even notice!! I hope these recipes make dinner a little easier to bear and that they bring you as much “dinner time joy” as they bring us.

Enjoy!! nom nom
