I’m really excited about this week’s selections for What Kids Eat Wednesday!

Next week will be all about family-friendly Christmas foods, but this week I wanted to share some awesome recipes that the kids can help out with!

6 delicious dishes kids can help make (and eat) - part of a weekly installment sharing the best of family-friendly food the internet has to offer

My top picks this week (although there were so many good choices and it was hard to pick!) were:

  1. Jaffles, Not Jaffles from Cook and Kid – we have one of these, although it’s often called a grilled cheese maker in North America (a sandwich press with two hallowed out triangle sides for making a delicious pocket of melted cheese in a sealed sandwich). Cook and Kid show us a variety of different uses for a jaffle maker – I’m actually planning on dusting off ours and trying out more than one! A fellow single parent trying to raise a daughter with positive food values – and a sense of humour! – I’m really enjoying this new blog.
  2. Maple Cinnamon Nuts from Hen Family – Megan is a real-life friend of mine who shares awesome vegetarian recipes and eco-friendly living on her site. This simple Maple Cinnamon Nuts recipe is a great option for the holidays and for having kids help in the kitchen!
  3. Chicken Potato Bake from Feeding Finn – Amy consistently shares gorgeous and yummy food ideas that will inspire you to get in the kitchen and be adventurous in feeding your kids! Bonus: most of the recipes are simple and straightforward, perfect for getting your feet wet.
  4. Tasty Chicken Balls from Gold Coast Post – there are so many delicious ways to serve these yummy-sounding meat balls. I can’t wait to try them!
  5. Lime Fish Tacos from Good Food Week – one of those awesome recipes that kids and parents will both love, these lime fish tacos would be a really fun supper to make and enjoy with the kids. If you’re not a fan of soft tacos (tortillas), you can always serve this ontop of a salad or fresh pasta.
