Kid Approved Healthy Meal Plan

Today’s meal ideas came from my kids mouths themselves.  I asked each one what their favorite foods were to compile a week of their favorite meals.  Then I got online to research “healthier versions” of their favorite foods.  It’s almost embarrassing  how they came up with typical kid junk-fare. I remind them they are supposed to be the “Super Healthy Kids”.  They are supposed to be an example to children all over the world that they love to eat healthy foods.”  Nate, my 11 year old smart aleck, said, “Tell your readers my favorite breakfast food is candy.”

So, in purple is what my kids asked for, and below it, what we are really going to eat.  I love being the mom!

My kids love breakfast cereal. It’s so hard to find kinds that are sweet enough for them and without the yucky stuff. Any ideas for homemade cereals?

Traci says:

My daughter LOVES poppyseed. We’ll be trying these for breakfast for sure!! thanks for sharing!!

Jamie says:

Candy for breakfast? I don’t think my kids would like the Sloppy Lentils. It is so hard to find recipes everyone likes.

Lisa says:

Thanks for your ideas! I am working on a meal plan that my kids will be happy with, too. I am wondering how you feel on a lower-protein/higher carb breakfast like when you have pancakes and waffles? Or do you have a protein along with it? If we have pancakes for breakfast, it would have to have sausage or eggs with it, for sustained energy as well as blood-sugar control.

Amy says:

Hi Lisa- I’m a total fan of adding protein! Even more so now, than I was when i wrote this post (2010) I agree, protein definitely helps with satiety and keeping blood sugar steady till lunch.
