With 4 children who don’t always like what we cook for dinner, the struggle can be real! (so so real!) Instead of providing another option or “special meal” for the picky eaters, I started researching kid-friendly recipes that I know everyone will enjoy. In the midst of my search, my friends at Babbleboxx came to the rescue and sent me a box full of kid-friendly foods from some great brands!

Kid Friendly Foods For The Entire Family
This box of kid friendly foods was sent at the perfect time. With school, teaching, writing a blog, being a mom and everything else in-between, life can be exhausting. The last thing I want to do is prepare two meals for dinner! Since receiving this box, I’ve incorporated a few new items into our week and some are now regulars on my shopping list!
CLASSIC MEATLESS MEATBALL FROM GARDEIN
Let me introduce you to Gardein Meatless Meatballs, which are certified vegan, non-GMO and kosher. They have 14g of protein, and ready to eat in as little as 8 minutes! You just toss them into your favorite sauce (or slice and put on pizzas!) and dinner is on the table! We have a child with a dairy allergy, so the fact that these meatballs are dairy free really helps! (They are powered by plants and free from preservatives!)
These meatless meatballs are delicious and make great appetizers (served with BBQ sauce for dipping!) You can shop for your favorite Gardein Meatles Meatballs online.
NEW BUTTER PARMESAN SAUCE FROM RAGÚ®
After reading about those meatballs, you might be interested in more sauce options to change them up! The New RAGÚ® Butter Parmesan Sauce is great for the entire family! It’s made with aged parmesan and real butter for those who enjoy the simple tastes of pasta. (My picky eater really likes to dip the meatballs in the parmeasan sauce and loves this 3-Minute Mac Recipe!)

PANTRY CLASSIC RANCH AND KETCHUP FROM TESSEMAE’S
Another favorite dip? Ranch Dressing and Ketchup. Tessemae’s offers a thick and creamy Ranch and an organic Ketchup that we love to see on our table!
The Classic Ranch has a great taste that will have your family dipping everything from carrot sticks to pizza to chicken wings! This is a dinnertime staple you can feel good about: It’s USDA Certified Organic, Whole30 Approved, Keto Approved, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Non-GMO, and with No Sugar Added.
Tessemae’s Ketchup is made with premium, organic tomato paste and naturally sweetened with organic dates and white balsamic vinegar—this perfectly flavorful condiment satisfies the iconic taste that kids want, while simultaneously impressing your foodie
friends. (I love that this ketchup has no sugar added!)
SQUEEZABLE ORGANIC COCONUT MANNA FROM NUTIVA
Until last week, I have never tried a squeezable coconut spread, but it’s now my favorite thing to eat on toast! Nutiva Squeezable Organic Coconut Manna is a delicious coconut butter spread make from organic pureed coconuts. With only 1g of sugar per serving, this pure coconut spread is a healthy alternative to traditional nut butters like almond or peanut butter. The pouch packaging is portable, mess-free and allows for better portion control when dispensing.
With three great flavors to choose from (coconut, chocolate and almond), it goes great in oatmeal, drizzled on fruit and in smoothies.
