Kids Recipes

Let’s face it, coming up with menus to please the kids is not always the easiest task. To make it more fun try to include them in the cooking process. They love to break the eggs (sometimes into the bowl), play with the breadcrumbs, and mix the batter. It may require a little extra cleaning, but it is always worth the effort as kids tend to gobble up meals that they created.

Why not start with some fun recipes BY KIDS FOR KIDS and below are some menus or click on KIDS for more suggestions from the GreatGrub community.

Menu 1: Southern Style Chicken and Cornbread
