Best Ever Kid Friendly Slimming World Recipes

Cooking for kids can be a… well.. a bit of a conundrum. They love what they love, and sometimes just one day later they hate what they love! This can of course make cooking for them, to put it mildly, quite a challenge. What makes it even more challenging is cooking for kids when trying to lose weight yourself. You don’t want to feel left out of the family meal and you don’t have time to cook everyone a different meal. So you need a whole list of recipes that the entire family can eat right? Yep I thought so! Well here I am with my top recipes that are Slimming World friendly and also perfect for the kids! 

The nightly family dinner struggle is real. Honestly you are not alone.. I literally dread putting together my meal plan and doing the online shop! If I ask the boys what they want for tea each night it’s usually… Chicken nuggets or hot dogs! Sure there is nothing wrong with either.. in fact I am happy to cook them whatever as long as they are eating. But I hate having to cook a different meal for everyone so I do try my best to cook healthy meals from scratch that we can all enjoy.

Us grown ups usually want food with flavour. But kids, all too often, just want something familiar and Beige! If you’re trying to keep everyone healthy on top of all that, well it can feel nearly impossible. But easy, healthy, kid-friendly dinners are possible! Below, find my favourite kid friendly dinner ideas, some familiar recipes and lots with hidden veggies too!
