As a parent, mealtime can be a challenge when you have picky eaters in the family. It can be a struggle to find recipes that everyone will enjoy, and often times, we resort to making the same meals over and over again. But with a little creativity and some help from eco-friendly kitchen products, mealtime can be a breeze.
Here are some meal ideas for picky eaters that are sure to please the whole family:
1: Build-Your-Own Taco Bar
Who doesn't love tacos? With a build-your-own taco bar, everyone can customize their own meal to their liking. Set out bowls of toppings like shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, grated cheese, and black beans, and let everyone assemble their own tacos. Don't forget the Duo Cover® to keep your tortillas warm and pliable.
2: One-Pot Pasta
Picky eaters often shy away from complex flavors, but a simple one-pot pasta dish can be a hit. Cook up some pasta with your favorite sauce and mix in some chopped veggies, like zucchini or bell peppers, for added nutrition. The ZipBag® is perfect for storing leftover pasta in the fridge for easy meal prep later.
3: Baked Chicken Nuggets
Kids love chicken nuggets, but the store-bought ones can be loaded with preservatives and unhealthy ingredients. Make your own baked chicken nuggets with fresh chicken breast and a coating of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. The UniLid® is perfect for covering your baking dish while the nuggets cook in the oven.
4: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
A classic comfort meal that everyone loves, grilled cheese and tomato soup is a crowd-pleaser. Make it a little more nutritious by adding some spinach or kale to the sandwich, and serve with a side of Swedish Dishcloth -cleaned tomato soup.
With these meal ideas and some help from Two Pillars' eco-friendly kitchen products, mealtime with picky eaters doesn't have to be a headache. The Duo Cover® keeps food moist and warm, the ZipBag® stores leftovers for easy meal prep, the UniLid® covers baking dishes, and the Swedish Dishcloth is the perfect replacement for paper towels. Mealtime just got a whole lot easier (and eco-friendlier)!
