27 Healthy Recipes for Kids including Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners and Snacks

The holiday season’s in full swing. As we race around shopping, decorating and meeting with friends and family it’s easy to stumble into an unhealthy eating routine.

Bits of cheese, crackers and sweet treats beckon from every table everywhere I go. And I’m not known for my willpower so I fall for it all.

And my kids, they fall too.


Now I’m not saying that I have all the answers to staying healthy during the holidays. I’m not even saying that I have any answers. But I can tell you what I’m trying to do for me and my family.

I’m letting us all enjoy the snacks and splurges when we’re out or when we have company.

But when we’re at home and we don’t have any guests, we eat healthy meals all the time.

That way, we get to sample the treats that the holiday season brings but we maintain healthy habits most of the time.

The recipes below aren’t just healthy, they’re also kid-friendly with flavors and fun twists that my kids love.

Here are the links to the 27 healthy recipes for kids.

These recipes are part of my ongoing collaboration with Produce For Kids.

Why are my recipes and pictures on the Produce for Kids site? A few months back, Produce for Kids and I began working together to come up with family-friendly healthy recipes. I developed 7 recipes for them and photographed those and a whole bunch more. Now my recipes and pictures are on their site and I get to tell you about them.

Produce for Kids is a healthy family resource that offers meal planning tools and healthy recipes for your family. All of the recipes are approved by a registered dietitian for containing all the nutrients your kids need (and not too much of the things they don’t). All nutritional info for each recipe is given as well.

I can never have too many healthy eating tips. Tell me in the comments section below, what do you do to keep yourself and your family healthy over the holiday season?

Disclosure: I was paid by Produce for Kids to develop recipes, photograph the recipes and promote them on my blog and on social media.

    Great recipes! I already tried the sweet potato casserole and chili lime kale and spinach chips a week ago and I really liked it. I’m going to serve it again this coming weekend for a family gathering. Thanks for the inspiration.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    My youngest is 26, but I have a house full of adult kids (including my 89 year old father and 62 year old, disabled brother-in-law). These are perfect recipes for healthy meals; my senior kids are just as picky as my grand kids. I have already added a few of them to my menu plan. Thanks!

    What a great article! A much needed resources for us parents, especially this holiday season when sugary treats abound. I love your recipe for coco banana oats and can’t wait for my little one to try it! I think it can be so hard to find snacks for children that are healthy and don’t taste like grass. Teaching kids to love fruit, vegetables and fresh foods is so important! Your article reminds me of a “buy one give one” company I recently found out about in Whole Foods called Nouri bar. They make date based (instead of granola) bars that are gluten-free and delicious. My kids absolutely love them! I am looking forward to adding some of your wonderful recipes to our holiday list :)
