When making my weekly meal plan, I like to create things that my children love because that is easier than dealing with picky eaters and complaints. However, I also can’t exist on chicken nuggets and pizza! I need more things, so I am constantly on the hunt for delicious, nutritious, and kid friendly meals. This week, we are trying lots of new goodies , but they all have one thing in common: they are kid-friendly!
What are Kid Friendly Meal Plans exactly? They are low ingredient and fun-sounding meals that my 3 boys will eat. Simple as that! I have 3 square meals a day that are all child-approved for week nine. I hope you and your children enjoy them as much as my children!
The complete menu plan for the ninth week of the year is below. You can find links to recipes and more. Scroll to the bottom to print out these Kid Friendly Meal Plans and the shopping list or, if you don’t want to wait, you can get 4 weeks of menu plans and shopping lists here.
