Easy Meals For Your Kids To Make By Themselves

Junior Chef

Kids are always on the go. They have so many activities to keep them healthy and active that spending time in the kitchen is difficult to fit in. However, when a kid is interested in what goes on in the kitchen it is a good idea to make time for them to get involved. Educating them on what goes into their bodies is a good way to help them learn nutrition and how the body works. When they learn what goes into their bodies and how it helps them function, they pay more attention to what they eat.  Here are a few meals that kids can make by themselves.  

Meals For Kids

Meals for kids to make on their own can be challenging but also fun and educational. Many meals can be prepared for and by kids. Finding ones that are age-appropriate is the key to successful meal planning with your child. Some meals can be simple and easy with almost no cooking. Meals like peanut butter and banana sandwich. Spreading a little peanut butter on a piece of bread or toasted bread and add sliced bananas (slice them with a banana cutter or butter knife, under adult supervision) will make a nutritious protein-packed lunch. Add an apple and a glass of water or juice and it’s a complete meal. Chicken and bacon roll-ups are always easy and fun meals to prepare, again with some fresh veggies and juice it makes the perfect meal for a child. Quesadillas are also a quick and easy meal for kids to make with adult supervision on the heating of the tortilla.

A Step Further

There are several kids cookbooks on the market today. One for every finicky eater. One for every food allergy or sensitivity as well. Ingredients that are already prepared and ready to put together is the key to getting kids involved with making their own meals. Making fun shapes or critters out of fruit or veggies is also a fun activity and way to engage your child in preparing their own food. Kids are not in control of a lot of things in their lives and this is a great way to empower them and give them some independence.
