How to:

  1. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, start by placing the Cheddar Bunny crackers in a Ziploc bag and then use a rolling pin to crush them. Make sure the pieces aren’t too fine, you’ll want the pieces to be similar in size to panko breadcrumbs! Cheddar Bunny Chicken Tender Recipe
  2. Pour the cracker crumbs and the yogurt into separate shallow bowls and set aside. Slice the chicken breast lengthwise into tenders – one breast creates 4-5 tenders.

To make the “pbj sushi” you will need:

  • Wheat Bread
  • Grape Jelly
  • Peanut Butter

Start by cutting the crusts off the bread and flattening each slice with a rolling pin. Then, use a knife to spread peanut butter and jelly on each slice. Be careful not to use too much– you don’t want to stuff your roll or things will get messy! Use your fingers to roll up the bread, just as if you rolling up sushi, and then slice into four pieces.

Carrot Fries with Lemon Mint Dip

Vegetables and kids? Now, that’s a struggle! Zelda instantly glares at me with her “Not The Veggies” look anytime she thinks some are coming her way. The only way I know how to get some veggies into her diet is to transform them into something else! Knowing how irresistible french fries are, we created these yummy Carrot Fries along with Lemon Mint dip. This light, refreshing dip is one of the best I’ve ever had and makes the perfect dunking addition to these “fries!”

To make the carrot fries you will need:

  • Eggs
  • Panko bread crumbs
  • Long carrot sticks
  • Salt and pepper

For the dip, you will need:

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup freshly chopped mint
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions for Carrot Fries with Lemon Mint Dip:

  1. Start by mixing all of the dip ingredients together in a bowl until well blended, then cover and let the drip chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Peel your carrots and then cut them down to your desired “fry” size.
  4. Then, separate your egg yolks from the egg whites, keeping the whites in a medium bowl.
  5. In another bowl, pour in your panko.
  6. Start your coating process by dipping the carrots in the egg whites, coating them in panko, and finally, placing them on the baking sheet.
  7. Bake your fries in the over for 20-30 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crispy.

Planning Healthy Meals for Kids (That They’ll Actually Eat)

Post by Adrienne of Susie Makes SupperPlanning Healthy Meals for Kids (That They'll Eat)If your kids are anything like mine, they would be happy with chicken nuggets and pasta for supper every day of their lives. And if you have ever tried to feed a kid like mine homemade macaroni and cheese when he or she is expecting the orange stuff that comes out of a blue box, you know that feeding kids real food can be a challenge.

Here are a few tricks that I use when planning healthy meals for kids:

  1. Rename the dish. My aunt recently told me a story about a casserole that her mom made when my aunt and her brothers were little. The casserole was simple: noodles, ground meat, and tomato sauce. You know the casserole. If it were pasta with sauce and meatballs, each ingredient separately identifiable, the kids probably would have eaten it without complaint. The boys refused to eat this casserole. One day, my aunt’s mom told the boys that they were having cowboy food for supper. She served the same noodle, ground meat, and tomato casserole that her boys had previously refused and that night received rave reviews from her boys. A favorite was born. “Cowboy Food” was regularly requested for supper. Same dish, different name. A little creative license goes a long way and is exactly the way to get your kids to try meatballs with spaghetti squash instead of pasta or homemade macaroni and cheese. Your kids’ favorite story characters or zoo animal or game can provide wonderful inspiration for your next meal’s name.Planning Healthy Meals for Kids - Meatloaf
  1. Make it cute. Truth: anything in the shape of a cupcake or made in miniature is more appetizing to kids. I can’t explain it, I just know it is true. This concept works for homemade macaroni and cheese, tacos, and meatloaf. Using the cupcake technique allows you some creativity with your ingredients. Meatloaf cupcakes? How fun! You can even frost them with mashed potatoes and decorate them with peas. (I’ve actually done this before – without telling my kids what they were eating. The kids not only thought it was hilarious, but ate every bite.)Planning Healthy Meals for Kids - Chicken Nuggets
  2. Let your kids help you make the dish. What’s in chicken nuggets, anyway? A lot of things you probably don’t want to eat if we are talking about the frozen, shaped variety. But your kids can help you make their own chicken nuggets (and shape them, if you have an awful lot of anti-bacterial soap in your kitchen) with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. This trick works well with other classic kid favorites like spaghetti-os and pizza. It also works really well with new dishes like gnocchi and potpies.
