Simple Kid Foods

Lila is such an unusual two year old. Especially when it comes to her eating habits. Her favorite foods include macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, grilled cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, and hot dogs.

Oh... that's not unusual? Haha no way.

Anyways... since kids tend to be such picky eaters and prefer only a few foods, sometimes it is easy to get stuck in a rut and give them the same foods all the time. I try to switch it up whenever possible. Here are a few twists on Lila's favorites:

Grilled cream cheese and strawberries + strawberry jam
Grilled Macaroni and Cheese Sandwich!
Spaghetti Boats and other kid friend spaghetti and meatballs recipes!
Rainbow Spaghetti!
Spaghetti Hotdogs!
Spaghetti Tacos!
Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly!
 Animal Crackers on a Log!
Apple + Peanut Butter + Chocolate Chip + Granola Sandwiches!
Peanut Butter Tortilla Treats!

I can attest that grilled peanut and jelly is definitely a hit. And grilled macaroni and cheese? Well I haven't tried it yet but I have a feeling it will change our lives. What are some kid friendly foods that you have discovered? Any twists on old favorites?


  1. A grilled mac and cheese sandwich...I'm in love! Two of my favorite foods combined!
    And the rainbow spaghetti is so fun!

  2. I like the look of that quesadilla, yum!

  3. these all look great! definitely going to try the grilled cheese rolls and apple sandwiches for my two year old niece :)
